The term “Pharisee” gets thrown around a lot today. As you can imagine, I get accused of being a Pharisee constantly. I can’t tell you how much this word hurts me when others carelessly throw it my way. I also can’t help but wonder if those who are so fond of using this slur really understand the historical and spiritual implications of such an accusation.
I hope this will cause you to think twice before calling someone a Pharisee.
