LET THEM ALONE

LET THEM ALONE

Matthew 15:14 makes this arresting statement: “Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a ditch.”

Jesus was addressing the strong presence of Jewish leaders: Pharisees, Sadducees, rabbis, etc. among the common folk who were following Him. These people refused to accept that Jesus was the very Son of God. They denied His Messiahship and were using their high positions to lead the common people astray. Jesus was pleading with the people to let them alone; do not listen to them. Not only are they going to end up in the ditch themselves, but so are those who blindly follow them. He proclaimed, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no man comes to the Father but by me.” There cannot be two ways about it. He that is not for Me is against me.

The Bible is clear and plain, and the choice is ours. It will be too late when we find out that we cannot serve two masters; we will love one and hate the other. With this strong language, Jesus was firing a warning shot across the bow of their/our lives. Excuses will not be acceptable. He branded the hypocritical teachers of the law for good and always. Leave them alone. Let them go their way. Do not believe them for a minute lest your blindness ditch you. It is a clear and stern warning. The blind leaders were attempting furiously to bind the old Law on the people, but here is Jesus saying, “No! No! Do not be deceived. I am the Light sent to guide you into ALL Truth. These blind leaders are trying to keep you blind also. Let them alone. They are headed for the ditch as are all who follow them.

This warning is still very applicable in our time. The blind leaders are still singing their siren song among us to this good day. But the words of the gentle Savior must be obeyed over the tumult because they are all that will resonate through Eternity.
