    We need to make sure that we examine some of the traditions we hold dear and make sure we know why we are following them and not just because everyone is doing it.

    Jesus way saying that many were just paying lip service to him. They didn't really have a clean heart in their worship.

    I think it is saying in verse 6 chapter 7 from the book of MARK that men can speak or say anything. But God knows all things and he knew that they didn't feel those ways in their hearts.as to go into verse 7 Jesus is saying how can it be that they worship him in vain, they are speaking of doctrines ,the commandments of men. They were ignoring the commandment of God and speaking their own belief.

    I think you're wrong. Read Acts chapters 10 and 15.
