Highlight the story of cleansing of the temple in the Gospel of Mathew

Matt 21:12-17:  

  • Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought
    in the Temple 
  • He overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats
    of those selling pigeons, 
  • He then said – ‘My house shal be called a house
    of prayer, but you make it a den of robbers’, 
  • The blind and the lame came
    to Jesus in theTemple and He healled them,
  • When the chief Priests and
    scribes saw the wonderul things he did (and the children crying out in the
    temple Hosanna to David’s son) they were angry, 
  • They said to Jesus,
    “Do you hear what they are saying? 
  • Jesus said, have you never read?
    Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou has perfect praise, 
  • And
    leaving them he went out of the city to Bethany and lodged there. ,

Ways the Church is defiled:  

  1. Through oath
    taking/ vow-taking, 
  2. Through occult practices, 
  3. Through breaking of
    commandments, 
  4. Through unholy / ungodly association,
  5. Through religious
    politics / Bribery and corruption, 
  6. Through abominable acts (rituals ands
    acrifices).
