Jesus spoke the parable to condemn those who trusted in themselves that they were righteous. The scribes and Pharisees were wrong on two counts. First, they were wrong in thinking that they were righteous ( Matthew 5:2;; 7:15). Secondly, they were wrong in attributing righteousness to their own efforts. It is self-righteousness that leads to pride, and the scribes and Pharisees had a double portion of both.

Where did the scribes and Pharisees go wrong? I think they erred in several critical areas. First and foremost, the scribes and Pharisees did not handle (interpret and apply) the Scriptures properly. They did not carry them far enough. They stopped at the apparent, but did not press on to the intended meaning and practice. They interpreted the Scriptures in terms of what they wanted to believe and in terms of the way they wished to live. They did not conform their lives to the Word of God, but conformed the Word of God to their lives. They turned the sacred text into a pretext. They interpreted the Scriptures in such a way as to always “fulfill” them, to live by their demands, rather than to be persistently reminded of their own sinfulness, and their need for a sacrifice. Rather than seeing holiness as God’s work, they saw it as man’s work, and thus they became proud and independent, rather than humble and dependent upon God. join us for part 2 of our lesson series: "Holiness, Is Not Just A Life Style, Its God' Character!"

The scribes and Pharisees of Jesus' day had a distinctly "holier than thou" attitude. The viewed themselves as a spiritual elite, and they looked down upon the masses as inferior. This is particularly evident in two passages:
And He also told this parable to certain ones who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and viewed others with contempt: “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee, and the other a tax-gatherer. The Pharisee stood and was praying thus to himself, God, I thank Thee that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax-gatherer. I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get" (Luke 18:9-11). Listen in to today topic: "Holiness, Its Not Just A Life Style It's God's Character" also visit us at www.uptopministries.org
In the creation of nature everything has an opposite. We have consciousness and we have unconsciousness. We have those who are in the know and we have those who live in a state of ignorance. So in this broadcast EYE will be building on the life style of consciousness. www.culturefreedom.webs.com HOSTED BY BROTHA ERIC AND SUN-RE 9

But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
Human beings all tend to agree that different people have different styles. Different style for dressing, getting work done, schedules, you name it. Lifestyles define a person, because other people can watch that person in action. Clearly the lifestyle of world would be different from that of a Christian. Is wearing a necklace with cross on it, make you a person with Christian lifestyle? Instead of asking the question, what is the lifestyle of a particular Christian denomination, it would be better to ask the question, what is the lifestyle of faith?

Galatians: 6: 4-10 4.But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing, in himself alone, and not to another. 5.For every man shall bear his own burden. 6.Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. 7.Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8.For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9.And let us not be weary in well doing for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10.As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
Gospel pioneer Sallie Martin once said, “I’ve never been the greatest, nobody ever called me the greatest; yet, still I’ve been everywhere the greatest have been…” These words could have easily been spoken by Nashville’s own, Everett M. Drake, as he, too, has shared the stage with many of the music industry’s greatest luminaries.
Like so many entertainers, Everett’s musical roots began in the church, singing in the choir and later serving as Choir Director of his beloved First Baptist Church South Inglewood. His dynamic passion for singing and directing were soon recognized by other gospel singers and he was tapped to join The Johnson Ensemble, a local singing group. They were enormously popular during the 1970s and recorded several albums. Their signature album, “The Harvest Is Plentiful” brought them national recognition.
It didn’t take long for Everett to catch the eye of other Music City’s heavyweights. They include Donna Fargo, Brenda Lee, Eddie Rabbitt, Barbara Mandrell, Wynonna Judd, Garth Brooks, Martina McBride, Brooks & Dunn and crossover giants, Lyle Lovett and Bonnie Raitt. His tours with Ms. Fargo and Mr. Lovett took him to audiences throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, the Caribbean, Korea, Japan and the Philippines.
Though comfortable with all types of music, Everett’s first love remains gospel music
