During the days that Jesus walked the earth, he though humble, had to speak against the Pharisees, and Sadducees. He took a lot of flak for doing so. However he let them know how very hypocritical they were. An example of this comes in
Then came to Jesus Scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
But Jesus answered and said unto them, Why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
For God commanded, saying, honor your father and mother. He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
But you say, whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, it is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have you made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
You hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
