However, JESUS could tell those who were following HIM for the right reasons and the parables were key to sieving them from those who followed for wrong and selfish reasons. It was an appetizer to some and to others, a buffer. However, this style of parables was also a reflection of HIS composition; it showed us that HE had the grasp of wisdom to condense the high value of GOD to the low person.
With the tongue, we confirm sin, we conform to sin; we affirm sin and say nothing against sin; we celebrate sin and calibrate sin upon our bodies. With the tongue we desecrate temple walls and make dirty the temple without restrains established originally for GOD and by GOD.

The FOURTH issue is that with contention comes a digression from progression to regret. Someone remembers the past and begins to not just doubt but specifically wish they had not known the truth or met the truth personified in JESUS; someone thinks they should not submit to GOS's sovereignty and in this, humanity begins a movement to accuse GOD: not by words, alone, but by actions or worse: by intentions which fight GOD more than we know.
