Matt. 23:25,27-28 — Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and… Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness.
Matt. 7:4-5 — how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
“The bible’s claim to truth is… tyrannical — it excludes all other claims. Scripture is not satisfied with claiming to be a historically true reality — it insists that it is the only real world, destined for autocracy… The stories in Scripture do not court our favor, they do not flatter us that they may please us and enchant us – they seek to subject us, and if we refuse to be subjected we are rebels.” — Eric Auerback
