Matthew 23:26 (KJV)
Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.
What happens when we try to help others? We start on the outside, thinking if we can change a man's home, clothes, food, and education, then we can create a new man.
It cannot be done. It was in the Garden of Eden that man got in trouble in the first place.
Cleaning up the outside is just reformation. When you clean up the inside, you are regenerated. Jesus is telling the Pharisees that they don't need another bath, they need a new birth.
People need more than soap and soup; they need salvation. They need a birth from above, not merely a boost from below.
