Luke 7:29-30

Luke 7:29-30 When all the people heard this, and the tax collectors too, they declared God just, having been baptized with the baptism of John, but the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected the purpose of God for themselves, not having been baptized by him.

Luke draws a line, dividing the crowd into two groups: all the people, including the tax collectors; and the Pharisees and lawyers. There is no third group. No in-betweeners, no still thinking about it. You either declared God just, or you rejected the purpose of God.

I know I'm with the tax collectors. Where are you?
