    MARK 7:7 HOWBEIT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN ****** MARK 7:9 AND --- HE --- SAID UNTO THEM FULL WELL YOU REJECT THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD THAT YOU MAY KEEP YOUR OWN TRADITION ****** LUKE 6:46 AND WHY CALL YOU ME LORD LORD AND DO NOT THE THINGS WHICH I SAY ****** PHILIPPIANS 2:21 FOR ALL SEEK THEIR OWN NOT THE THINGS WHICH ARE JESUS CHRISTS
  • Brianna to Irene123
    The Bible says that ALL scripture is inspired of God. (2 Timothy 3:16) To say that an emperor wrote Matthew 28:19,20 is saying that 2 Timothy 3:16 is a lie. We know that Jesus and his disciples practiced and taught evangelizing.Remember the words at 2 Peter 1:20,21. Interpretation comes from God.

    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.
