The Pharisee Card

Pharisee Card Those who play the Pharisee Card hope to dismiss Christians…as ultra-conservative doctrinal purists with no love for the lost. But like a fifth Ace up the sleeve, the Pharisee Card is a cheat.

Those who play it ignore the real errors of the real Pharisees. They wrongly apply the name to those who stand in the way of false teaching, compromising change and a watered-down gospel. In the end, The Pharisee Card amounts to nothing more than name-calling.  And, like the Race or Gender Cards are in politics, in the Church, the Pharisee Card is always the sign of a losing hand.
