Jesus called the scribes and Pharisees serpents, and said further,
“Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?” (Matthew 23:33).
Those self-righteous critics of Jesus could not escape hell in their condition, unless they repented.
The party of the Pharisees have disappeared, but in spirit they are still here, although those who are Pharisaical would never admit what they are, because they cannot see it.
Let us pray to the God of heaven that we not have their spirit, but that we have His Spirit living in us, shown by how we treat other people.
