Substituting Appearance for Integrity of Heart

Substituting Appearance for Integrity of Heart

1 Samuel 16:7; Isaiah 29:13; 58:5; Matthew 15:8; 23:25–28; Mark 7:6; 12:38–39; Luke 20:45–46

There is nothing that God more abominates than when men endeavor to cloak themselves by substituting signs and external appearance for integrity of heart.
