Don't you see so much better than just following some rules

from Jefferson Bethke – Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus (Spoken Word) on Rap Genius

Meaning

Legalistic dogma, rules and rituals that some insist must be followed in order to be in right standing with God are the equivalent of white wash. This verse is referring to rules that deal with the outside of a person or their appearance in terms of how they are viewed by others. True Christianity deals starts with your heart. Get your attitude and heart together and the rest will follow instead of just following rules so that you can appear to others to be right.
