    Tradition is one of the Pattern of this World, Paul Understand this that is why he said Do not conformed to the Pattern of this world but be Transform by the Renewing of your mind. Renewing means return back to the original mind setting, which is from the beginning We only listen and do what God Says.....It is high time for us now not to listen what others told about you, just only listen what God tells you...God Bless everyone.....
