“We have fasted…, …‘Why don’t you hear our prayers? …I’ll tell you why! Because you are living in evil …while you are fasting…’” (Isa 58:3, TLB). “…These people say they are mine but they do not obey me, and since their worship amounts to mere words learned by rote; …I will take… vengeance on these hypocrites and make their wisest counselors as fools” (Isa 29:13-14, TLB). “These people say they honor me, but their hearts are far away” (Matt 15:8, TLB). “‘…These people speak very prettily about the Lord, but they have no love for Him at all. Their worship is a farce—comic play—for they claim that God commands the people to obey their petty rules.’ How right Isaiah was” (Mark 7:6, TLB)! “They will go to church, …but they won’t… believe anything they hear. Don’t be taken in by people like that” (2 Tim 3:5, TLB).
