DO NOT FOLLOW A PHARISEE!

ARE NONE RIGHTEOUS?



Isaiah 64:6    But we are all as an unclean thing and all our righteousness is as filthy rags, and we all do fade as a leaf.  And our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away


By "we", Isaiah means the children of Israel as a whole, not that all of that whole are unrighteous:

Isaiah 65:8   Thus says the Lord, as the new wine is found in the cluster, and one says destroy it not for a blessing is in it, so will I do for my servants' sake, that I may not destroy them all

The Lord is set on destroying those whose righteousness is as filthy rags.   But not all of them are unrighteous, as the Lord says some among Israel are still his servants and for their sake, he will not destroy all of Israel.   

The Lord tells them that their righteousness is as filthy rags, and these unrighteous people thought they were holier than other people:

Isaiah 65:2-5   I have spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people  ... which say, stand by yourself and do not come near to me, for I am holier than you ....

Isaiah 65:11-12  ... you are they that forsake the Lord, that forget my holy mountain ... you did not hear, but did evil before me eyes and did choose that wherein I have no delight

People choose to do evil, contrary to the claim of the 'grace, no more law' Christian Pharisee Paul convert crowd, who claim all flesh is evil; that the Christians are those who accept that no one is righteous, that Christ saves us by his grace and imparts his righteousness to us.   In other words, Christians are spirits saved by Christ that remain in evil bodies.   Non-Christians are spirits not saved by the grace of Christ.  Furthermore, the doctrine of Pharisee Paul preaches the evil doctrine of predestination, so the Christians get puffed up being the "holier than you" evil children of Hell saying Christ appointed them to salvation, and those who are non-Christian have not been appointed salvation by Christ, unless God predestines them to salvation.  The Christians stand on the lies of Pharisee Paul.   But one stands on truth to believe on Christ who says those who refuse to give up evil deeds are just exercising their preference to do evil:

John 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world but men preferred  to love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil

There is another group who has righteousness, and their righteousness is as filthy rags and because their righteousness is as filthy rags, Christ says they never go to Heaven:

Matthew 5:20  Unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of Pharisees and scribes, you shall not enter Heaven

The righteousness of Pharisees and scribes, and their converts, are as filthy rags.    But they do think they are holy, even holier than everyone else:

John 8:39 ... Abraham is our father

John 8:44  Your father is Satan

Matthew 7:22-23  Many shall say to me in that day, but Lord Lord we did many wonderful works in your name ... And I will tell them, I never knew you.  Depart from me, workers of lawlessness

God speaks against the belief by some Jews that they are holier than everyone else, and no one can come near them, and that belief is in the Pharisees' Talmud: 

Isaiah 65:2, 65:5 ... a rebellious people who walk in a way that is not good ... which say, stand by yourself and do not come near me, for I am holier than you

Pharisee Paul is an evil one who speaks, I am holier than you, as Pharisees do, and as their converts do:

Acts 10:28   ... you know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation, but God has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean

2 Corinthians 6:15   And what concord has Christ with Satan, or what part has he that believes with an infidel

Ephesians 2:2-3  ... [all non-Christians] are children of disobedience ... by nature the children of wrath

The Pharisees had a bit of a dilemma in that they needed to convert some Jews to Paul's gospel to stick them in the mundane positions of Jewish church rulers for the Gentiles who have to hang out at the church buildings, be around the Gentile converts a lot of their time.  The Pharisees did not want to stick around churches, they just wanted the cash flow from their Gentile Christian converts (Romans 15:27, 1 Timothy 5:16-18, 1 Cor. 9:9-11).  The Pharisees teach in the Talmud that all Gentiles are unclean, as animals, and therefore God forbids Jews to be with Gentiles.  The Torah and the Tanakh teach no such thing.  So the Pharisees come up with their Peter tale in Acts Ch. 10 to get around that dilemma.    No more Gentiles unclean, yeah the Pharisees need some Jews to convert to the Pharisees' gospel of Paul which requires them to hang around with the Gentile Christian converts,  but they got that Talmud thing already going that forbids Jews to be with Gentiles so they amend that in their gospel of Paul to make it okay for the Jewish converts to Talmud doctrine to now hang around with Gentiles.   Peter and his fellow apostles were told long before the lie in Acts Ch. 10 that they would present Christ's gospel to Gentiles (Matthew 10:18).


Isaiah 64:6 is the cornerstone of the Christians' belief in the gospel of Paul - that no one is righteous.  Being incorrectly interpreted and taught as though meaning that no one in all the world is righteous, the Christians rely on Isaiah 64:6 to give what they think is a measure of credence to Pharisee Paul's claim that all flesh is captive to an alleged law of sin and therefore can never keep God's law.  There is no law of sin, and furthermore, contrary to Pharisee Paul's claim that all flesh is captive to the law and for that reason, can never keep God's law, he says he kept all of God's law blamelessly.   Trust a Pharisee?  Be stupid, or as Christ says, be a child of Hell for believing upon Pharisee doctrine (Matthew 23:15):


Philippians 3:5-6   .... as touching the law, [I am] a Pharisee.  As touching the righteousness that is in the law, blameless

Romans 7:23 ... All flesh is captive to the law of sin

Isaiah speaks of Israel as a whole in saying that none are righteous, not that all individuals of Israel are unrighteous, for in Isaiah 65:8, the Lord says that for the sake of his servants, he will not destroy all of Israel.  The Lord's servants are righteous people, no one who does evil is a servant of the Lord.  Because there are some righteous, the Lord says I will not destroy all of Israel.  Among such righteous people is Isaiah, a prophet of God.


When many passages conflict with an interpretation of a passage, then to be truthful, that interpretation must be abandoned because it conflicts with explicit statements to the contrary in other passages.   I have clearly shown that Isaiah 65:8 makes the Christians' interpretation of Isaiah 64:6 invalid.  Not all are unrighteous, the Lord has servants who are of Israel for whose sake, because they are righteous (no servant of God is evil), he does not destroy all of Israel.    Beyond Isaiah 65:8, there are many passages which declare there are righteous people.  The Christian Pharisee Paul converts are evil people, liars so regardless of facts to the contrary, they stick to their belief that no one is righteous, and that which they rely on to back up their contention, Isaiah 64:6, does not back up their contention:

Matthew 9:13  I came to call sinners [evildoers] to repent, not the righteous


Matthew 23:33   Upon you [Pharisees and scribes] shall come judgment for all the righteous blood shed on earth

Matthew 23:33 ... Able [is righteous] ....

Matthew 23:33  ... Zechariah [is righteous] ....

Revelation 22:11  ... Let him that is righteous be righteous still and let him that is holy be holy still

Revelation 18:20  Rejoice over her Heaven, holy apostles and prophets for God has avenged you on her

Job 3:2  ... Have you considered my servant, Job, that there is none like him in all the earth, a perfect and upright man [righteous]

Psalm 1:6  The Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish

Ezekiel 18:21-22  If the wicked shall turn from all of his sins that he committed and keep all my statutes and do what is lawful and right, he shall surely live and shall not die.   All of his transgressions that he committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him; in his righteousness that he has done he shall live


God would be evil to demand from mankind that which cannot be performed and causing their death for failure to perform that which they cannot perform - to cease doing evil.  Christians would argue, being they believe Pharisee Paul's doctrine that all flesh is allegedly captive to a law of sin, that God brings death to those who cannot cease evil deeds even though it is no fault of their own that they do evil deeds.  Paul offers himself as an example of the alleged law of sin in operation:

Romans 7:19  I do not know how to do good.  I do evil

Romans 7:25  I serve God's law in my mind and I serve sin in my flesh

The law of sin in operation is that one can only serve God's law in mind because the flesh is given over to sin, captive to the law of sin, according to Pharisee Paul.   God states the path to life but too bad none of mankind can ever walk that path, say Christian Pharisee Paul converts.   Christians says that one must walk the path the Pharisee presents as being the path to life, which is that Christ imparts his righteousness to the Christians, who yet remain in evil bodies that cause them to do evil deeds.  The Christians are very anxious to die so they can get a new body, or at least that is what their master Pharisee instructs should be their desire (2 Cor. 5:4).   They ignore where their master Pharisee Paul declares:

Philippians 3:5-6  ... as touching the law, [I am] a Pharisee.  As touching the righteousness that is in the law, [I am] blameless

And they ignore Christ:

Revelation 22:14  Blessed are those who do God's commandments that they may have the right to the tree of life ....

Christ says the same as the Lord said through Ezekiel, turn from evil and live.  Those who do God's commandments are the ones who have the right to eternal life.   Those who refuse to cease evil deeds do not have eternal life.  What are the two commandments of God that upon which hang all the law and the prophets?  Love God and love neighbor as self.  Pharisee Paul is a self-admitted evildoer, which means he does evil to other people and therefore does not love neighbor as self.

 The gospel of Christ is: repent because the kingdom of God is coming and I did not come to call the righteous to repent (Matthew 4:17, 9:13).  Evildoers, stop doing evil is the message of Christ.  If one is not doing evil (righteous), then they are living right before the eyes of God, which is to love God and love people, is the message of Christ.  Love does not do evil to others.  The Lord wants people to do what is pleasing in his sight, not displeasing:

Romans 7:19  I do not know how to do good, I do evil

Matthew 13:41  Christ shall send forth his angels who shall remove all evil people and all offensive things from the earth

Pharisee Paul relies on Psalm 14 to back up his contention that no one is righteous, but Psalm 14 provides no such backing (Romans 3:11).  And the liar leaves out what the Lord says:

Psalm 14:5-6   ... for God is in the generation of the righteous.   You have shamed the counsel of the poor because the Lord is his refuge


Psalm 15:1-2   Lord, who shall abide in your tabernacle?  Who shall dwell in your holy hill?  He that walks uprightly, that works righteousness

If no one is righteous, then God has no generation of people, for God says he is in the generation of the righteous and if there are no righteous, then God has no place with mankind at all.  But we know God does have his people who love him, serve him therefore there are workers of righteousness, not all are unrighteous (evil). The Christians are blind followers of the blind Pharisee Paul who wrongly declares that no one is righteous.  But then elsewhere in Paul's doctrine, he declares he was a righteous man, absolutely blameless when it comes to keeping God's law (Philippians 3:6).

Pharisee Paul and his evil converts contend that they are righteous because Christ imparts his righteousness to them but they cannot keep God's law, they cannot work righteousness because their flesh is evil, captive to the alleged law of sin, but the Lord says only those who work righteousness shall be with him (Rev. 22:14):

Revelation 21:3   ... Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them ....

Psalm 15:1-2   Lord, who shall abide in your tabernacle?  Who shall dwell in your holy hill?  He that walks uprightly, that works righteousness

Revelation 22:14  Blessed are those who do God's commandments [workers of righteousness] that they may eat of the tree of life ....

The Lord says only those who work righteousness shall dwell with him, and in Revelation 21:3, we see the Lord dwells with men, and being the Lord only dwells with those who work righteousness, then those of mankind whom the Lord dwells with must be workers of righteousness.  There are righteous people.  And there are people who would have worked righteousness had they received God's message, mercy is extended at judgment (Matthew 11:20-24).  

The Lord does not dwell with workers of unrighteousness.  Pharisee Paul is a worker of unrighteousness (Romans 7:19 I do evil, Romans 7:25 I serve sin).   There are workers of righteousness, which makes a liar out of Pharisee Paul and his many Christian converts who claim otherwise (Romans 3:11).   The Christian Pharisee Paul converts are not workers of righteousness, Christ calls them workers of unrighteousness (lawlessness or iniquity):

Matthew 7:22-23  Many shall say to me in that day, but Lord Lord we did many wonderful works in your name ... And I will tell them, I never knew you.  Depart from me, workers of lawlessness

The Christians would scoff at God in the matter of Job.   God said to Satan, have you seen my servant Job, he is perfect (Job 2:3).  The Christians would answer God saying, no one is righteous therefore no one is perfect.   Satan did not dispute Job was perfect, but rather argued Job was perfect for the blessings he received from God for being perfect (Job 1:9-10).  Satan offered to put Job in misery and then Job would curse God for his sufferings, but Job did no such thing despite being put in misery by Satan.   Many evil discourses have been written by Christian Pharisee Paul converts on the book of Job, ignoring:

Job 2:4   ... you caused me to move against him, to destroy him without cause

They say Job was being tested by God, and other evil untruths about the matter of Job.  Job 2:4 above is truth, God did not move against Job, did not seek to test Job, and it was without cause that Job went through all that he did, and all because of Satan.   The Christians would say to God, Job is not perfect because no one is righteous and the Christians say to Christ, you are a liar, for Christ says "be perfect" and they would answer Christ saying, no one is righteous, therefore no one can be perfect.  And Christians call Christ a liar saying no one is righteous, even though Christ declares there are not only righteous people, but holy people too:

Job 2:3   And the Lord said to Satan, have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and upright man, one that fears God and shuns evil ....

Matthew 5:48  Be perfect, even as your Father in Heaven is perfect

Revelation 22:11 ... Let him that is righteous be righteous still and let him that is holy be holy still

Revelation 18:20  Rejoice over her Heaven, holy apostles and prophets for God has avenged you on her

Psalm 14:5  God is in the generation of the righteous
