“Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men.” Mark 7:8
One of the many reasons Jesus came was to show us a true relationship with God. When God gave us The Law or Torah, it was meant to be a good thing. It was like instructions a Father would give their child. However man turned the Law into a device used to control and oppress people. Religion eventually turned into a big business while controlling people.
Jesus told the religious leaders they are “Hypocrites”, they twist the Word of God and use it for their benefit. When you perform rituals or traditions of men, ask yourself is this Biblical? Did God really command this or is this a tradition man has imposed on us?
Am I saying all traditions are bad? No , but its important that we Trust in the Word of God and not man. Don’t just blindly follow traditions because someone tells you to, study the Bible and find out for yourself if this is truly what God wants.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6
If we truly want to get to God, there is only one way Jesus Christ. No religion will lead you to God, only through his Son can we be redeemed and obtain a relationship with our Heavenly Father. If you truly want to find God, follow Jesus, he was sent here to show you the way in Jesus Name Amen
