Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
Amazing how the religious leaders of Jesus’ day could reject what they knew to be the Word of God for their traditions. They actually used their traditions on purpose to not look at what the Word said.
We are often guilty of the same. We have always done things a certain way. We do not check what the Bible says we just do what we have always done. New Christians often have a hard time understanding how we came to the conclusions that we have. We can’t explain them either because we don’t know the Bible verses behind the teaching we just know what we are supposed to do.
We must become men and women of the Bible. We must let the Bible really be our only rule of faith and practice and not the traditions even of the Baptists.
