Preparation for Initiation 18
- Written by Samael Aun Weor
Hypocritical pharisees sit on Christ’s seat.
“And if the blind lead the blind, all shall fall into the abyss.” - Matthew 15:14
We knew a hypocritical pharisee who rejected the sacred wine because the grape juice had fermented. Someone hosted him in his home and he indignantly fled from this house because the owners of the house ate meat. That perverse pharisee was a follower of another horrible impostor, a black magician.
“Do not ye yet understand that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.” - Matthew 15: 17-19
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites,! For ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within you are full of extortion and excess.” - Matthew 23:25
When some pharisees were criticizing the venerable Master Litelantes because she ate meat, she answered to them, “First I will correct my defects, and after I have corrected them, I will then stop eating meat.” Those pharisees then thundered furiously against this great guru of the law.
Many hypocritical pharisees hate us because we are not complacent with whoredom, because we condemn crime, yet they state that this is why we hate. This is how they imprecisely judge us.
What happens is that all of those hypocritical pharisees from Spiritualism, Theosophism, Rosicrucianism, Aquarianism, etc., yearn for a sanctimonious mastery where masters are complacent with crime; a type of spiritual whore-master who, complacent with crime, goes around from lodge to lodge, from school to school, from sect to sect. This is why we, those who truly love humanity, are hated by hypocritical pharisees.
We knew a hypocritical pharisee that let his hair and beard grow in order to deceive imbecilic people; such a pharisee stated that he was bound by the Nazarite vow. Regrettably, his followers ignored that since the advent of Christ the ritual law was nullified. Thus, his questionable Nazarite vow only served him as a pretext in order to deceive naïve souls.
At that time, a married woman resolved to abandon her sacred wife’s duties in order to head off, “she alleged,” as a Magdalene following the adorable impostor.
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers. Ye serpents, ye perverse generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” - Matthew 23: 27, 33
To the abyss!
