Then His disciples came and said to Him,
“Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?” (Matthew 15:12).
Did the Lord run to the Pharisees and apologize? Did the Lord decide to do some market research next time to find out what people want in a church?
But He answered and said,
“Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch” (Matthew 15:13–14).
Jesus did not offend people just to be offending because He wanted to be different, but He taught truth, and that truth offended people.
If we change spiritual laws to accommodate people to keep them from getting hurt, we might as well change natural laws to prevent people from getting hurt.
