LUKEWARM PEOPLE probably drink and swear less than average, but besides that, they really aren’t different from your typical unbeliever. They equate their partially sanitized lives with holiness, but they couldn’t be more wrong (Chan, “Crazy Love ,” p. 79).
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean. "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 (Matt. 23:25-28).
