ANY PLANT MY FATHER HAS NOT PLANTED WILL BE PULLED UP BY THE ROOTS.
Pharisees and scribes from Jerusalem came to Jesus and said, “Why do your disciples break away from the tradition of the elders? They do not wash their hands when they eat food.”
He called the people to him and said, “Listen, and understand. What goes into the mouth does not make a man unclean; it is what comes out of the mouth that makes him unclean.”
Then the disciples came to him and said, “Do you know that the Pharisees were shocked when they heard what you said?” He replied, “Any plant my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. Leave them alone. They are blind men leading blind men; and if one blind man leads another, both will fall into a pit.”
