Matthew 15:10 - 15:20
In this teaching, Steve Gregg discusses the conflict between Jesus and the Pharisees over ritual hand washing and eating. Jesus dismisses their traditions and teaches the crowd that it is not what goes into a person's mouth that defiles them, but what comes out of their heart. Evil thoughts stem from self-centeredness and self-gratification. Gregg emphasizes the importance of heart transformation in addressing societal problems.
