Scripture... As We Live It: From Alan Knox @ The Assembling of the Church Blog

Alan Knox posts a series at his blog that takes the Scriptures and adds a twist to them. This twist often infers upon the text what we see currently being practiced in our modern settings. Below you will find his latest installment, it was too good to pass up so I am re-posting it here. Thanks Alan!

This is the 97th passage in “Scripture… As We Live It“:

They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger. They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long wear their nice suits and clerical robes, and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues church buildings and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi Pastor by others. (Matthew 23:4-7 re-mix)

(Please read the first post for an explanation of this series.)

I am most disheartened to see men who truly love the Lord do this blindly out of tradition...
