Weightier matters

The Pharisees were caught up in rituals and False religion. They had supported Herod's system of welfare and altered the nature of Corban in Judea making the word of God to none effect. Modern Christians have done the same by looking to the Benefactors who exercise authority as their Fathers of the earth.

I have asked hundreds of people and pastors all across America "What did Jesus list as the "weightier matters"?

No one could list them off based on their reading or study of the scriptures. You would think that every minister would take a special not concerning instruction from the mouth of Christ listing what he considered to be the "more important matters".

The "scribes and Pharisees" were condemned as hypocrites because they omitted these but the Modern Church seems to not know them and certainly fails to attend to them.

Matthew 23:23 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier [matters] of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone."

The rejection of God by the voice of the people who elected to have a ruler who could exercise authority which we see in 1 Samuel 8 was the result of the people not wanting to take the time and energy to attend to those weightier matters. They wanted a ruler to do it for them and so they elected Saul just like people did with Nimrod and Cain.

Does the Church you go to attend to the "weightier matters"?

Let us gather together in one blessed "nation" Network attending to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors, the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to do so by the Covetous Practices of modern governments.

The Way of Christ was not like the way of the world, nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on benefactors who exercise authority. Christ's ministers and true Christians do not depend upon systems of social welfare that force the contributions of the people like the corban of the Pharisees which made the word of God to none effect. Many people have been deceived to go the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitan and out of The Way of Christ.

The Christian conflict of the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for benefits but instead relied upon a voluntary network providing a daily ministration to the needy of society through Faith, Hope, and Charity by way of freewill offerings of the people, for the people, and by the people through the perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies according to the ancient pattern of Tuns or Tens.

The modern Christians are in need of repentance.

"Come Follow me!" —Jesus the Christ.
One of the most important things to do is to become involved in a network of Charitable Practices. Everyone should want to join a Living Network of Love and Charity.
If you think you have a calling to be a Minister of God or you might want to dedicate your life to Christ as an Ordained Minister of His Holy Church then contact us to start the process of discipleship and become the benefactors who do not exercise authority but love.
