A mentally-ill secularist has driven his car into a monument erected to the Ten Commandments in order to smash it.

There you are, standing in the queue after filling up with petrol, and you’re wondering why it’s taking so long. Ah! Someone has been doing their shopping in the little store there.

The Pharisees and Sadducees are no more. As religious groups, they died out in AD 70 with the fall of Jerusalem and the end of the temple. In Matthew 16:6, Jesus said ‘Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees’. So if Jesus’ warning is still relevant for us today, the ‘leven’ or spirit of these groups must live on. These people appeared to be holy, but were not.
