FILLED WITH RAGE.  A curious response in the face of so glorious a miracle. Such irrational hatred was their response to having been publicly humiliated—something they hated worse than anything (Matthew_23:6-7). They were unable to answer His reasoning (Luke 6:9-10). And furthermore, by healing the man only with a command, He had performed no actual “work” with which they could charge Him. Desperately seeking a reason to accuse Him (Luke_6:7), they could find none. They responded with blind fury. ~ John MacArthur

But they were filled with fury and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus. ~ Luke 6:11

The above makes me think of trying to communicate in so-called Christian chat rooms. I believe the only truth comes from the Bible, God’s word to us. But if you say you do not believe that God is still giving people new revelations to add to the Bible, they are likely to stone you.

Religious self-seeking people commonly use the phrase “The Lord told me” as a shield for all kinds of stuff.

There’s a dangerous pattern in the church when it comes to divine direction. Many people today want to hear directly from God, whether it’s through an audible voice or a stirring in their soul. Worse still, people who claim to follow God legitimize everything from heresy to fundraising schemes to personal decisions saying “The Lord told me”. Divine direction comes from the Bible. Keep an eye out for things like that and stay away from them. God has revealed His word to us through the Bible.

I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.” ~ Luke 5:32

I came not to call the righteous,…. Such as the Scribes and Pharisees were in their own apprehension, and in the esteem of others, who trusted in themselves, that they were righteous, and submitted not to the righteousness of Christ: these Christ came not to call by his grace, and therefore did not associate himself with them: but sinners to repentance; such as the publicans, and others, with them, were; and therefore he was chiefly with such, and chose to be among them: these he not only called to repentance by the outward ministry of the word, but brought them to it; he having power to bestow the grace of repentance, as well as to call to the duty of it;  ~ John Gill

Now it happened that He was passing through some grainfields on a Sabbath; and His disciples were picking the heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands, and eating the grain. But some of the Pharisees said, “Why do you do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?” And Jesus answering them said, “Have you not even read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him, how he entered the house of God, and took and ate the consecrated bread which is not lawful for any to eat except the priests alone, and gave it to his companions?” And He was saying to them, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” ~ Luke 6:1-5
