Do you realize that the same people that said Jesus ate with sinners also said that John the Baptist was demonic?

Matthew 11

18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.

19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

Do you realize that the same people that said Jesus ate with sinners also said that John the Baptist was demonic? So if we use “Jesus ate with sinners” as doctrine, we also have to teach that John the Baptist was demonic. In reality Jesus ate with those “sinners” that were repentant, and John the Baptist was filled with the spirit and power of Elijah.

No wonder the western church is so backwards and upside down right now… We take our doctrinal cues from the Pharisees, who were the enemies of Christ. We don’t understand the Scriptures because we are so busy rehearsing clichĂ©s. We can’t follow Jesus or prepare the way like John the Baptist because we actually believe what the Pharisees said about them.

Jesus said that the doctrine of the Pharisees was hypocrisy, and the definition of a hypocrite is an actor in real life. But we love great acting and great performers just like the Pharisees were. It’s time to prepare the way for the coming of the Lord and get back to the heart of God! Amos 5 23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols. 24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.
