Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
How much of what we teach and practice is just a keeping of our own traditions and not the commandment of God. We have been commanded to take the gospel to the world yet many churches seem to major more on what they don’t do instead of what they do. I fear that too many times we have become like closet Catholics or have moved into our convents. We have become so separate from the world that we do not affect or impact the lives of men and women in our world. We live in our Baptist Bubble or Christian Cocoon. We touch not the world nor do we even talk to them. The majority of us do not even know lost people so that we can not win souls to the Lord Jesus Christ.
