Yes, that is very true, John. Apparently they forget Matthew 9:10-13:
[quote:211qjigm]While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat with Jesus and his disciples.
The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
He heard this and said, “[b:211qjigm]Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.[/b:211qjigm]
Go and learn the meaning of the words, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ [b:211qjigm]I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.[/b:211qjigm]”[/quote:211qjigm]
I’ve seen way too many times people that are looking not for a church that teaches some ultimate truth about God, but a church that shows you how to fit God into what you already believe and are doing.
Another one of my favorite Evangelical/Fundamentalist ironies is their claim that the Bible stands on its own and speaks for itself yet they still go to their pastor for an interpretation and rely on Bible studies to guide them. :rolleyes:
