There are passages which are difficult to understand, some which contradict others in other parts of the bible. Modern Hasidic Judaism focuses on the needs of the common people and the Hasidic Jews take the concept that everyday activities are of equivalent importance to religious rituals to an extreme.

One who loves God with his whole heart, and is empty of pride, 2. I was answered that I must join none of them, for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all corrupt; that: “they draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof.” (Joseph Smith�History of the Church Chapter 1:18-19 ) And also those to whom these commandments were given, might have power to lay the foundation of this church, and to bring it forth out of obscurity and out of darkness, the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth, with which I, the Lord, am well pleased, speaking unto the church collectively and not individually- ( Doctrine and Covenants: Section 1:30 ) “More and more error crept into Church doctrine, and soon the destruction of the Church was complete.
