Religious Christians are not humble people who think of others as better than themselves, and they don’t know the meaning of the Scripture where Jesus says: “I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices. For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.”  Instead, these religious Christians condemn, judge, and accuse others, looking only out fortheir own interests, and are always busy trying to impress others with their hypocritical, self-righteous behavior, acting as if they are so perfect, squeaky clean, and never doing anything wrong! (See Philippians 2:3-4 and Matthew 9:13) They are like the Pharisees who arrogantly look down on people, as they did when “Matthew invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. But when the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with such scum?” Matthew 9:10-11 NLT  The Pharisees were also ready to condemn and stone a woman to death they had caught in the act of committing adultery. But Jesus exposed them, saying; “Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”  When they heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” “No, Lord,” she said. Then Jesus mercifully said to the woman, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.” (See John 8:1-11) “God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy!!!” Matthew 5:7 NLT
