Pristine Grace

Mt 15:1-20, (MKJV)
1  Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying,
2  Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.
3  But He answered and said to them, Why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
4  For God commanded, saying, "Honor your father and mother"; and, "He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him die by death."
5  But you say, Whoever says to his father or mother, Whatever you would gain from me, It is a gift to God;
6  and in no way he honors his father or his mother. And you voided the commandment of God by your tradition.
7  Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,
8  "This people draws near to Me with their mouth, and honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
9  But in vain they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."
10  And He called the crowd and said to them, Hear and understand.
11  Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man; but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.
12  Then His disciples came and said to Him, Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?
13  But He answered and said, Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up.
14  Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
15  Then Peter answered and said to Him, Explain this parable to us.
16  And Jesus said, Are you also still without understanding?
17  Do you not yet understand that whatever enters in at the mouth goes into the belly, and is cast out into the waste-bowl?
18  But the things which come out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile the man.
19  For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies;
20  these are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.
