People's Bible Notes for Matthew 23:10


Mt 23:10 Master. Also an honorary title. All such are to be avoided in the church.

Discussion for Matthew 23

  • Matt
    The scribes and Pharisees are Cain's descendants. They began to infiltrate the Levitical priesthood in Ezra and Neh. These Kenites sit in the seat of Moses; even to this very day. They call themselves Jews. Our Lord, Jesus Christ, exposes them in John ch. 8 v. 44. They are the seed of the serpent, Satan, and Christ is The Seed of the Woman. They bruised His heel, but He (Christ) bruises his head.

    Jambita: Yes! Most churches today are in a sea of darkness. They don't know their lost headed for the lake of fire. They have a lot of social activities and functions. They think they are looking great for Christ,but have spiritual anorexia. They don't know the father is calling John 6:44, washed 1John 1:9, will be Baptized with the Holy Ghost and fire Matthew 3:11, Will know! 2 Corinthians 5:17.

    The truth is slowly but steadily becoming isolated from the brethren. I witnessed a night vigil yesternight whereby I 'accidentally' carried a bible to a church function, only to be welcomed by a diversity of culinary products on the table.
    We ate to our fill then the preacher gave a sermon that dwelt much on the contemporary life with scarce reference from the bible. Come Lord Jesus come.

    To Brad Vigansky - I think I like your 'politics' - LOL.

    Over the years, and there have been many. I have had 85 revs around the sun and hope to have quite a few more. During that time I studied myself out of 2 'Christian Churches'. I just couldn't abide by what they were teaching. If anybody asks me, "What am I" I would answer, I am a Son of the Living Creator God. If someone were ask me, "Prove there is a God", I would reply, prove there isn't.

    The Word of the Lord is the truth and the only truth. If we look around we can plainly see the actual Pharesees, the modern ones, doing the same things their ancestors did. I believe with all my heart and soul, there is one and only one father. Our Father and Lord, our creator...!
