Pastor Ramon tackles a thought-provoking concept in this sermon: how an unyielding attachment to tradition can morph into defensiveness and hostility. He delves into John 5:9-17, drawing an analogy between the Pharisees' response to Jesus' healing on the Sabbath and the territorial aggression of feral dogs. Their rigid interpretation of the Sabbath laws blinded them to the true spirit of the law, leading to persecution. Pastor Ramon suggests this unwillingness to adapt fueled their hostility, much like a threatened feral dog. Ultimately, his aim is to prompt us to examine our own Christian journeys, ensuring we don't succumb to the same pitfalls that ensnared the Pharisees.
