The Traditions of Man
He condemed the replacing of God’s commandment with tradition and human reason. Speaking to the Pharisees, he said, for laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men all to well, you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition (Mark 7:8).
Jesus taught that his Church should keep the commandments of God: if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments (Matthew 19:17). He warned:
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name, cast out demands in your name, and done many wonderrs in your name? And, then i will declare to them, I never knew you , depart from me, you who practice lawlessness! (Matthew 7:22-23).
He knew that false teachers would arise who would reject the commandments of God for a distorted gospel of law. My friends, obey the commandments of God not the traditions of man.
