Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
Why do you not see that I was not talking to you about bread? But be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees!"
Then the Pharisees left the synagogue and immediately consulted with the Herodians about Jesus, with a view to putting him to death.
And he warned them, saying, "Look out! Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and the yeast of Herod!"
And they came up and said to him, "Master, we know that you tell the truth regardless of the consequences, for you are not guided by personal considerations, but teach the way of God with sincerity. Is it right to pay the poll tax to the emperor or not?
And they asked him, "Master, we know that you are right in what you say and teach, and that you show no favor, but teach the way of God in sincerity.
2 Corinthians 5:16
So from that time on, I have estimated nobody at what he seemed to be outwardly; even though I once estimated Christ in that way, I no longer do so.
Is that appealing to men's weaknesses, or to God? Is that trying to suit men? If I were still doing that, I would be no slave of Christ.
Those who were regarded as the leaders??hat they once were makes no difference to me; God takes no account of external differences??he leaders contributed nothing new to me.
1 Thessalonians 2:4
God has thought us fit to be intrusted with the good news, and so we tell it, making no effort to please men, but to please God, who tests our hearts.
The wisdom that is from above is first of all pure, then peaceable, considerate, willing to yield, full of compassion and good deeds, whole-hearted, straightforward.
for God shows no partiality.
