We humans are funny. We like traditions. And while some traditions are good, if they don’t line up with the Word of God, they can be downright dangerous.
If we believe and follow our traditions more than we believe and follow God’s Word, we’re in trouble. Jesus said it this way: You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition (Mark 7:7). Ouch!
Now, we like to think that ‘other people’ are the ones who have unscriptural traditions – certainly not us! But most of us cling to some sort of belief that isn’t in the Bible, based on how we grew up, what we’ve been taught, etc. I’ll give you an example.
