Which is why Jesus hated religion, and for it he called them fools
Matthew 23:17; 19
The Pharisees and Sadducees were the religious leaders and guides of their people, yet Jesus called them fools for their inability to distinguish between important matters and insignificant things. They made such a big outward scene and a show of their religiousness by putting ornaments on their heads that represented their prayers, but underneath they were greedy for attention and praise and full of sin. Jesus even called them children of hell in Matthew 23:15.
