Against organized religion and government
"Be careful," Jesus warned them. "Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and that of Herod." Mark 8:15It's usually "Pharisees and Sadducees" [Matthew 16:6] but here Jesus uses "of Herod." So one should watch out for not just religious leaders but also political ones, too. Jesus was against man-made religion as well as man-made political structure(s). We are to be "in the world" but not "of the world" [cf John 17]. And to be bound to no man, religious, political or anything else man-made.
