We had an interesting sermon yesterday that started justifying all the rules and regulations, and like how if it's the Sabbath in a Jewish household, they're not allowed to the switch the light on so they ensure it's not switched off. The sermon basically excused this as focusing on God and having a time of rest. Im pretty sure God doesn't really care if you turn the light on or not.

Anyhow, paraphrasing, they basically went on to suggest that the Pharisees were basically good people trying to get themselves and others closer to God and Jesus's argument was essentially that they were getting people to God the wrong way.

This reminds of sermons I've heard in the past about there being many paths to God, and how it's wrong for Christians to assume that we have the truth. Other religions may have the truth as well.

I just started thinking heresy. Im sure Paul and Christ were firmly against these sorts of rules and regulations which serve actually as a separation to God!

Thoughts?
