Why do you think Jesus reserved His strongest criticism for religious people who used their spiritual reputation to get social attention and honors?

      Because they were the leaders of the people and steering the people wrong leading them away from God

      Jesus reserved His strongest criticism for religious people who used their spiritual reputation to get social attention and honors because they were not truly living out the word in their heart, only in their outwardly actions. They were doing things for all the wrong reasons.

      The religious people were the ones that were supposed to know and understand God’s message to bring to the rest ought people. They were the ones that were to be representing God to the people. They didn’t do it to honor God, they did it for personal gain and glory. This was not an accurate representation of a gracious God. This is not what God wanted. Those in leadership positions need to accurately represent God or they shouldn’t be in that position.
