Do the sins of the scribes and the Pharisees discredit them from teaching truth?

Can we still trust the teachings of the scribes and the Pharisees even Jesus hate them so much?

Matthew 23:2 - 3

ESV - 2 The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat. 3 So practice and observe whatever they tell you - but not what they do. For they preach, but do not practice.

The answer is right there in the text. If you want to know if that is applicable to our days I can say "yes". We have "theologians " today who are teaching very biblically but their life....

God can and have used in past and in present even Satan to do His job, but nowhere in the Bible is any suggestion Satan will be ever saved.

I don't want to suggest that the theologians who are not living what they teach are the same as Satan. So, think about your question in this terms and God blesses you with more understanding and more living according His will.

Just wanna share this cause everytime I come to read His word and share to all, I'll always ask Him in a spirit way in terms of wisdom and knoledge, cause I am nothing that He pick me up and turn into something. 1cor. 6:12 just believe and recieve what is for you and you will be benefited. Hebrews 12:2 a thru believer are not looking to somebody, or any ones life, but only unto Him, because if you believe what Jesus Christ did for you, and your are in Him Romans 8:1 we don't have the right to do so even if what others life is all about, because we are not in them or to anybody, but only in Christ alone. Amen! A thru believer in Him will shine no matter what just don't put a time limit on Him, becuase even in this world I never ever see a buterfy fall among rabish then it turns into worm again. Puting into practice what we heard is not a burden to us insted a joy because we knew that He has done something for us that we cannot pay out of our own works, in other words all what we are doing or practicing is just a fruit of what He did to us, because if you put into practice whitout knowing the Jesus Has allready fullfil everything you will end up like an isralite wondering in the welderness holding the 10 laws striving to get something. Always remember that even the pharesis Jesus Has come for them to and died for them to giving them the chance to turn back to Him and believe in Him, John 3:16. I pray that He will open up your spiritual eyes to see Him and make Him as mirror in every aspect of your life and not to someone else life, 100% sure that He will let you shine above all that you can't emagine, and He will change you Glory to Glory. Amen! Shalom!!!
