“He warned them, “Take heed. Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and the yeast of Herod.” Mark 8:15
Our example of a servant, the Lord Jesus, always warned his disciples about the danger of bad influences, so that they would not be contaminated by the hypocrisy of the Pharisees.
Yeast represents evil and corruption because it has the power to alter the dough, just as sin alters genuine faith.
In the same way Jesus warns us to watch, to flee from bad conversations, and from people who can contaminate our faith with our words and actions.
How many people have already given up the path of faith? Simply by joining others who were spiritually bad and subtly injecting poison into their innocent hearts. When that person realized it he/she had already bad eyes, bad feelings, bad thoughts and full of malice.
Watch out! Sometimes the wolves come dressed in sheep just to destroy you.
As it is very clear in the above verse, we must guard ourselves. It is we who decide with whom we come together and who we listen to. It is not God who will keep us from these people, it’s us! From the moment we do not join them, we do not listen to them, and we do not follow them.
Do not forget what I always teach here on the blog. If it's not good for your faith, and it's not good for you, so run away!
I would like you to leave your comment bellow. Who has already given up on faith because h/she allowed himself/herself to be contaminated by someone who was spiritually evil?
