Dr. Joe Stowell believes we all have a little Pharisee in our hearts - that grim faced, self righteous person who cares more about being outwardly religious, than about a heart that responds to Jesus with grateful love.
When we're confronted with the reality of Jesus, do we remain indifferent and religious like Simon the Pharisee or do we fall at His feet in. .
That is why it is hard for us to love Jesus. Many years ago, Dr. Stowell and his wife had the privilege to attend a performance by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Interspersed between rousing renditions of many classic gospel hymns were the testimonies of several choir members. However, these heartfelt proclamations of faith were far from ordinary for these were people who had been delivered from the miry depths of despair.
When we're confronted with the reality of Jesus, do we remain indifferent and religious like the Pharisees, or do we fall at His feet in adoring worship like the woman who had been forgiven much?

The Trouble with Jesus - Joseph M. Stowell. And when that is the agenda, the authentic Jesus is trouble. It was then that I began to realize why Jesus was unwelcome
The Trouble with Jesus - Joseph M. It’s difficult to include One who has claimed to be the only way to God when a diversity of paths to God is being celebrated. What was unspoken in the symbolism of the prayers was made unmistakably plain in the message that followed. It was then that I began to realize why Jesus was unwelcome. I could have shrugged it off as an isolated voice out of touch with the rest of America if it weren’t for the fact that this sentiment is being propagated broadly.
