Preaching from the Gospel according to Matthew, chapter 23 verses 1-12, Rev. Moore explores this passage known as "Jesus denounces the scribes and the Pharisees." Rev. Moore takes pains in his sermon to underscore that this passage is not Jesus attacking the Jews, but rather Jesus talking against a system of checks and balances intended to keep people out of the church. Recorded Oct. 30, 2011 from the pulpit of Mayflower Congregational UCC Church in Oklahoma City.
