Jesus warned us about the Pharisees’ “leaven” (Luke 12:1). “Leaven” is a common Jewish metaphor for an unseen and pervasive influence. Jesus warned us about the Pharisees’ hypocrisy, which spreads like leaven. The Pharisees pretended to be righteous while plotting to capture Jesus. In the absence of malicious intent, righteousness cannot exist.
What was Jesus’ antidote to stop the spread of leaven? “Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth,” the bible says in 1 Corinthians 5:8. (1 Corinthians 5:8). Moreover, we fight with sincerity and truth in the face of the rise of hypocrisy and legalism.
The Integrity of the Church
It is critical to maintaining the church’s integrity. We are already at the gates of this power pillar. Don’t already represent this pillar? Should we still be considered as Insiders? As Christians, the church is our “home turf.”
What we need to do is keep the enemy from entering the church quadrant. Jesus warned his disciples about the Pharisees’ and Sadducees’ doctrine (Matthew 16:11-12). However, God promised everything would be revealed, including hypocrisy and sin in the religious quadrant.
Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed or hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops. (Luke 12:2-3)
