Valley News and Views Page 7 September 26th, 2013 Religious people are, at times, the greatest obstacle to a person becoming a true follower of Christ. Jesus expressed this thought in Matthew 23:13. In this verse He rebuked the hypocritical religious group called Pharisees, saying, "...for you lock the doors of the Kingdom of Heaven in men's faces. You won't come into it yourselves, and when others try to come in you won't let them" (Gspd, Beck trans.). Jesus pointedly said the Pharisees were not on a road that ends at Heaven's gates. He had earlier warned, "... except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 5:20). One commentary noted this about Jesus' Matthew 23 statement-"...theyprevented others from participating in [God's kingdom] because of their false teaching and hypocritical life-styles" (Biblical Library). Nicodemus, himself a Pharisee, but an honest, open-minded Pharisee, confessed to Jesus, "we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him" (John 3:2). Most, however were religious hypocrites who stubbornly held on to their dead and dry religion. They loved their religion more than they loved God. The traditions stemming from their forefathers were far more important to them than God's Word. So when Jesus ignored their traditions, they hated Him. It mattered not that they knew God was obviously with Him. The Pharisees went so far as to warn "that if any man did confess that [Jesus[ was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue" (John 9:22). We must also be careful not to put our love for a belief system ahead of our concern for the spiritual well-being of others. We do not want to be an obstacle.
