Luke 6:39-40

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 39 Then he spoke a parable to them, "Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into a ditch? [How do we know who is blind? The next verses tells us that a blind guide is someone who has not been perfected; who therefore cannot see to take the spec out of his brother's eye, and evil comes from his mouth. From the Word of the Lord within: "There are millions of blind guide preachers. I work with the blind; but if you think you can see, and you are not with me in heaven, I will make you a laughingstock. You can live in heaven and still walk the earth."]

 40 The disciple is not above his master, but everyone who is perfect [purified, restored to the spiritual image of God, specifically authorized, and perfected] will be like his master. [To preach or teach with authorization, your evil heart must first be cleansed, purified, and perfected so you can hear from God every word to be spoken and see every deed to be done. If you are following an unperfected minister, you have been led into the ditch. Unperfected ministers seek their own glory and your money. Jesus told us to leave the unperfected, thus blind guides, which blindness he further discusses in the next verses.]
