Looks Can Be Deceiving

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people's bones and all uncleanness.  So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." - Jesus (Matthew 23:27-28)

Yes, good picture.

Jesus judged the Pharisees in that passage who were quick and thorough in their judgment of others. We will be judged as we have judged others.

I find that thought quite troubling when I consider Christians, some of whom I know to be the most judgmental, critical people I know. Like the Pharisees, falling short of God's grace?

My name is Kelsey Towicz and I am from Adelaide, Australia. I find this as a good message to all of us. I personally have been a prime example of using my looks to deceive people. I am raised as a Catholic and I was one of the most judgemental people I can think of. I want to change so I have turned to the Bible for guidance.

Excellent choice of picture:)

This is internet intimidation please ignore these comments. The police have been contacted and this is being treated as a case of stalking.
