The Pharisees of the religious world are all very well-read in Scripture and they have served God for many years, and yet not only do they not seek and investigate the appearance and work of God incarnate but, to the contrary, they wildly judge, condemn, and resist. This really is unbelievable! So why do the Pharisees of the religious world condemn and resist God? God says, "Those who readin grand churches recite the Bible every day, yet not one understands the purpose of God's work. Not one is able to know God; moreover, not one is in accord with the heart of God." "The reason that man opposes God stems, on the one hand, from the corrupt disposition of man, and on the other hand, from ignorance of God and lack of understanding of the principles of God's work and His will toward man. These two aspects merge into a history of man's resistance to God" (The Word Appears in the Flesh).
