Dear Matthew:  Notice what Jesus said:

Mat 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

Jesus said "the Kingdom of Heaven is LIKE...leaven...till the whole was leaved."

Surely we don't think that Jesus is telling us that "the Kingdom of Heaven is SIN," do we?

Leaven can represent good or bad. Leaven was used to WORSHIP God:

Lev 23:17 Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be bakedwith leaven; they are the firstfruits unto the LORD.

Amo 4:5 And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim and publish the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Hope this helps your understanding.

God be with you,

Ray
