yupp it’s chapter 23 guys ;)

okay.. this chapter talks about the seven woes.

the seven woes.. i think is some sort of owning device. Jesus.. uses this device to own the Pharisees. well

to be honest, they are kinda worth owning. if that makes sense.

well i’m just going to talk about one of seven woes mentioned.

 16 “Woe to you, blind guides! You say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gold of the temple is bound by that oath.’ 17 You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? 18 You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gift on the altar is bound by that oath.’ 19 You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred? 20 Therefore, anyone who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. 21 And anyone who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who dwells in it. 22 And anyone who swears by heaven swears by God’s throne and by the one who sits on it.

YUP i chose the longest one..

but the thing is okay. the pharisees are like. don’t swear by the temple…or the altar, because they dont’ mean anything. but swear by the gold of the temple, and the offering sacrificed on the altar.

and Jesus is like.. WAHHH.. oh no you didn’t. haha jks.

Jesus is like what is the gold of the temple worth.. if there is no temple. what is the offering on the altar worth.. if there is no altar.

SEE? God makes so much more sense. :D

anyways.. Jesus went on saying..  if anyone swears by the temple.. you’re swearing by the person dwelling in it.. well obviously thats God. and we’re not supposed to use His name in vain…

and he goes on saying if anyone swears by heaven. you’re swearing by the one who sits on the throne.. and that ultimately means God….

the thing is.. we’re not even supposed to swear in the first place.

but Jesus totally owned the Pharisees in this one.

PHARISEES. GET A LIFE. i’m soorrry if that sounds mean or anything. but you have to stop devoting your life.. just to make others feel bad. thats.. not exactly fun. just saying.

HEY. i’m being honest.
