<-- Back to Mark chapter 7

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.

he also said he is the end to the law

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

Mark 7:14...23 has been used for eons to justify eating anything the Christian wants to. These passages DO NOT determine what the definition of what meat food is, this can only be found in Leviticus. Our LORD God YHWH defined for us what is meat food and what is an abomination to us. The Lord does not change and Jesus told us that he did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill it, and he kept God's law perfectly. So now re-read these passages and apply the definition of food per Leviticus to them and you will find, this is saying nothing at all about what you can eat. Food has been defined long before in Leviticus. Please read and compare what I have said, let the Holy Spirit guide your thoughts, and remember why follow man's commandments when you have a set of perfect commandments from God!

What does it matter, as to what you or I think about anything spoken of in the Bible? Since the Bible is the Word of God, only what God says, actually matters. How can our mortal opinion carry any weight with God? Even the Bible (Gods word) is not just His opinion, but rather it is established fact! We can only understand the truth of Scripture, when God gives it to us, as progressive revelation

34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. Second Time in scripture that Jesus spoke in tongues. "That is" means being interpet.

BOBBY ANDERSON's comment about verse 9 on 6/22/2015, 3:46am...

Paul keep the commandments so why would say they not necessary?

 


Bozki's comment on 3/16/2015, 9:49pm...

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.....

The scribes and Pharisees found fault with Christ and his despises that right there is vary telling not all people did not even the man possessed with legion for they were many. Christ said they taught for doctrine the commandments of men my opinion they were in the church for money and position they were self righteous and could not see with there harts the loving savior there hart was blind he was trying to point this out The people who hummbled there harts before Christ he heals and forgives I 'm so glad

VERSE 6,7,8 ABOUT WORSHIP HERE JESUS TELLS THAT PEOPLE WILL WORSHIP GOD PHYSICALLY AND THEIR MIND WILL BE THINKING OF SOMETHING ELSE.IF YOU WORSHIP 'GOD THE ALMIGHTY ' CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH THEN YOU SHOULD DO THAT USING YOUR PHYSICAL BODY AND YOUR FULL MIND.THAT IS THE REASON WHY JESUS HAS TAUGHT US TO SHED ALL YOUR WORLDLY DESIRES SO THAT YOU COULD WORSHIP YOUR CREATOR FULLY.IF YOU HAVE ANY DESIRES OF THIS WORLD THEN YOUR MIND WILL BE THERE.WHILE PRAYING WHAT EVER YOU ASK 'GOD ' HE WILL GIVE YOU.ONCE YOU GET WHAT YOU DESIRE THEN YOU TEND TO FORGET 'GOD THE ALMIGHTY '

 


THOMAS.V.JOSE's comment on 10/12/2014, 6:56am...

VERSE 15,16 IT IS SAID THAT WHAT EVER COMES FROM A MAN ONLY CAN MAKE HIM UNCLEAN. THAT MEANS IT IS YOUR TAUGHT AND DEEDS THAT MAKE YOU UNCLEAN. IT IS CLEAR THAT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR TAUGHT NEITHER GOD NOR SATAN HAS ANY ROLE IN WHAT YOU THINK AND DO.YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF YOUR TAUGHT .GOD HAS GIVEN FULL FREEDOM TO YOU TO THINK AND ACT.HERE JESUS IS ALSO NOT FORCING OR COMPELLING ANYONE TO FOLLOW HIM. UNLIKE ANY OTHER RELIGION JESUS IS SAYING IF YOU NEED ETERNAL LIFE YOU SHOULD BE CLEAN IN YOUR TAUGHT AND DEEDS . JUST BY OFFERING PRAYERS AND SACRIFICE YOU WILL NOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Why did he always tell them not to tell when I think he knew they would?

 


J. Kane's comment about verse 16 on 1/14/2014, 7:16am...

This phrase Christ spoke is to be comprehended on multiple levels, or the phrase has more than one way of being understood. Thus being prima facie and beyond.

And thou all people (should) have ears, very few people use them to hear the many happenings taking place all around them and things spoken in their midst, even things spoken to them directly. This is not due to physical defect, but is a learned technique of filtering out sound and word at the earliest possible point in the hearing process.This technique is not taught but is learned through interaction from early childhood on. The specific rule set for what sounds and spoken word to be filtered are unique to each person, but commonly result in a process of only giving further thought to sounds or spoken word that communicate immediate danger or immediate threat, or pertain to your immediate activity in mind or at hand and discarding everything else.

Another interpretation of "any man that have ears to hear, let him hear" has nothing to do with actually hearing sound or word at all. Nor does it imply the intake of information generally, by whatever means from whatever source. The phrase is a command being given to they who hold great truths and they who teach higher knowledge, and of the ancient mystery schools. The command is to convey the great truths and/or higher knowledge and that of the mystery schools to any man wanting of this knowledge and the cognitive ability to understand it. And thou this comprehension of the phrase does not fit within the context of Mark chapter 7, it follows Jesus revealing of a great truth about what truly defiles a man, and the placement of the phrase is the indication of it's multiple understandings. This to include understanding the phrase in the context of the story, and out of context, or to be clear, the phrase comprehended as a single freestanding statement, which in this case is more of a command.

Whether the command has been followed for the most part? I do not know, but can only testify that I have never been barred from knowledge or truth within my grasp and desire, but what of the knowledge we do not know (or unaware of) that we should know? You need faith for that.

Ekis, please read Luke chapter 3, verses 21-23

 


Ekis's comment on 9/03/2013, 10:13am...

which of the portion of bible can i found how old was Jesus when he baptized

 


Ronald l. collins's comment about verse 21 on 8/01/2013, 1:30pm...

we our born with the old nature romans 5:12.if we become a Christian we have a new nature. saved are lost we all have the old nature and only the Lord knows who are truly saved. Satan means accuser of the brethren and devil means slander. when we live in the sprit we have the fruits of the spirit. Galatians 5:22-26. If we walk in the flesh Galatians 5:17-21 is the outcome. A Christian can sin but will be convicted and possible chastening of the Lord. Hebrews 12:3-8. Those who are without Christ in there heart have no real power to please Jesus, and only he knows who is Saved. Jesus said enter in at the narrow gate, because wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction and many people go there in . But few find the narrow gate. Ephesians 2:8,9.

 


William's comment on 5/16/2013, 11:29am...

To answer your questions Winson, I believe what Jesus is referring to is that anything we take in from the outside world (music, books, food, etc.) cannot defile our souls. Only that which we sow to others (blasphemy, cursing, fornication, murder, etc.) which comes from our HEART will difile our souls. As for Deuteronomy, remember that the old testament was the time of the law (ten comandments) while the new testemant is a time of grace. While we are still required by the law, we have the grace of God because it is not possible for anyone to live by the law.

 


Winson Falia's comment on 2/13/2013, 6:43am...

Is there anyone who can explain what verses 18,19 are saying? Does verse 19 say we can eat anything we like? Then what Deuteronomy 14 talks about the unclean food that we are not supposed to eat?

 


Jay's comment on 12/17/2012, 9:08am...

Correction on remarks concerning anonymous about anti-swine friend. Genesis 9:3 is written under grace not under the law which does not really begin until Exodus 20:1.

 


Jay's comment on 12/15/2012, 7:50am...

@Anonymous,
As on anti-swine friend, there are still many denominations and individuals that are still trying to please god by practicing Old Testament Jewish laws where they do not apply in the New Testament church age. This is what happens when you do not rightly divide the word of truth (II Timothy 2:15). Jesus is always using a physical situation to illustrate a spiritual situation as he is doing here in Mark 7:15. The issues are of the heart (soul) not the stomach (Proverbs 4:23; 23:26; 23:7). If a person does not want to eat certain foods for health reasons there is nothing biblical against that, but when a person eats or abstains from certain foods to please God spiritually that is Old Testament mentality, not for the New Testament church Christian age (I Timothy 4:1-5), and Genesis 9:3 written under the law, not grace under. Meats for the belly and the belly for the meats it all comes out at the drought.

It is a good verse of the holy scripture.

Christ wasnt mocking woman, he was testing her faith !

 


Irene's comment on 9/17/2012, 9:44am...

As for the woman who came to Christ and said that even the dogs ate the crumbs that fell to the floor, in those days it was common for the diner when finishing dining to take bread to clean their hands and cast it to the floor and the dogs would come and get it. This woman demonstrates that she has great faith in Jesus...she is not held back by the law, therefore she is given grace and mercy.
