unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because
ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the
sepulchres of the righteous,
No, we would not have done any of
those things......if we would have been there. We know
it in our hearts. We know it in our minds.
Every time we sin, we Spit in the face of Jesus
Every time we let filthy communication proceed out of our mouth, we Slap him in the face
Every time we grudge, judge, or condemn one another, we Ridicule him
Every time we are angry without righteous cause, we Mock him
Every time we render evil for evil or railing for railing, curse and not bless, we Laugh at his beating
Every time we Do not follow after whatsoever things that true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous, and praiseful, we Jam the crown of thorns upon his head
When ever we Do not love one another with a pure heart fervently, we Beat him with a reed
When ever we Do not do good to all men as opportunity may allow, we stand with the crowd yelling "Crucify him, crucify him"
Brothers and sisters, when ever temptation arises, and it will, if the fact that "the wages of sin is death" won't stop you from succumbing to it, remember, you'll be spitting in the face of Jesus.
