Guess Who!

I read this post that looks back on who the Pharisees really were, and it reminded me of a large group of Christians in the US. Can you guess who?

Contrary to popular opinion, that isn't necessarily a bad thing. If you take the time to read the first post in the series, you may understand why that is. Too often we have a stereotyped image of Pharisees, yet Jesus Himself referred to their acts as holy. Jesus was opposed to those who made life difficult for everyone else, or those who felt they had a right to judge everyone else. There were an awful lot of Pharisees in the early Church, as well as those who actually followed Christ while He was on earth. Sometimes we forget that.
