There is more than one way to say LOVE. The Greeks had at least eight different ways to say love, and those eight words are as follows: Agápe, Éros, Ludus, Mania, Philautia, Philía, Pragma, and Storgē.
The Pharisees or Sadducees’ leaven (their spiritual pride and religious hypocrisy) spiritually, morally, emotionally, and physically alters the internal and external characteristics of the lives around them. In other words, a spiritually proud religious hypocrite swiftly poisons the inward emotions and attitudes of other individuals. Additionally, a spiritually proud religious hypocrite’s outward behaviors always dishonors, disrespects, and diminishes the “much good” that genuinely holy and righteous people do. That’s why believers today still need to watch out for the Pharisees and Sadducees’ leaven, for it rots within and affects without.
