Pastor John MacArthur talks about Matthew 23, and the strong reaction Jesus had toward the false teachers of His time. Then in Mark 8:15, we are warned to "Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and [of] the leaven of Herod."
Today, we are very familiar with what occurs when there is too much leaven in the teachings of our Christian leaders. To clarify, a leavening agent is any one of a number of substances used in doughs and batters that cause a foaming action which lightens and softens the finished product. The leaven added into Bible teaching is enough to send someone to hell. I challenge you to be aware of how your thinking may have been leavened by those around you, and to compare your beliefs and convictions to Scripture.
