Mark 7:6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 6 And he answered and said to them, "Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, 'This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.1 [From the word of the Lord within: "The hypocrite may talk of faith and do evil. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. Only a heart that is purged of sin is acceptable to God. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion." Every man is judged by their words and works, including those who claim to be Christians; God shows partiality to no man. Until your heart has been washed, cleansed, and purified, your heart is full of sin, and you are defiled; and should you die still sinning, you will be banned from heaven.]

Mark 14:45

 45 And as soon as he had come, he went immediately to Jesus and said, "Master, master!' And kissed him.3 [It is not what you say that makes Jesus your Lord or Master, but your deeds — your obedience to his teachings and commands. By your deeds you either acknowledge him or deny him as your Lord and Master. If you continue in sin and call Him Lord, you are like those whom He said: "This people draws near to me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their hearts are far from me." Mat 15:8]

Ezekiel 33:31-32

 31 And they come to you as the people come, and they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they will not do [obey] them; for they show much love with their mouth, but their heart goes after their covetousness. [Covetousness is wanting something more: a new car, a new house, a vacation in Hawaii, clothes, a body, fine dining, a drink, a drug, a cooler cell phone, etc. Covetousness is forbidden both in the Old Testament and the New, and by the law of God, and by Christ and his apostles. Paul has defined covetousness as idolatry. The world has totally forgotten about covetousness, and Christianity's gopel of prosperity preachers even teach that covetousness is rewarded by God. And so, while today's so-called Christians confess their creed, sing their hyms, say their prayers, and study their Bibles; all is with only their mouths for their hearts are just as foul as their so-called pagan neighbors, both wanting the same things. From the Word of the Lord within: "Christianity has no idea who I am or what I stand for. Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion."]

 32  Indeed, to them you are like a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument, for they hear your words but they do not do [obey] them.1
