    And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. I had a impediment of speech until I was about 10 years old. One day riding with my Dad on a large sled with bales of sugarcane, being pulled with our mule. I fell off and a stub or stick sticking up in the ground went into my mouth and split my tongue. N I spoke plain.

    Jesus is God, and makes no mistakes because He Knows All Things! It shows that by healing the gentile woman, God is no respecter of persons...
  • JP
    Jesus Christ came to save the house of Israel to fulfill the law and prophesy first as the Word of God clearly says, but this greek woman was a gentile and Jesus saw her faith in him and he blessed her by answering her prayer. Jesus Christ is God and cannot make a mistake.
  • Obbie Beal
    1-5 we learn of 'customary practices' of /by church-folks; church-folks elevate such 'customary practices' above the COMMANDMENTS OF Jehovah /GOD; GOD is concern with SALVATION plus verse 20, 21, 22, 23; in 2019 the world has proven to GOD they will have nothing other than 20, 21, 22, 23; now the ball is in GOD's hand /court and the world SHALL see what play /move GOD will make (READY or Not).
  • Obbie Beal
    20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. (Jew or Gentile this verse applies to the heart of both)

    Carl he tested the woman
  • Joe
    Carl, I have trouble believing Jesus made a mistake. I believe He was testing the woman to see if she had strong enough faith.
  • Carl Harmeling
    Jesus under estimated the Greek woman with the mentally ill daughter. Her humility indicated her faith and this he recognized and commended. Jesus was not too proud to admit his mistake. Neither should you be.

    Verse 7~There is a form of worship that is futile. We must make sure that we are worshipping God in the way that he wants as he has showed us in the Bible.
  • A disciple
    Mable; You bring up a very important part and hard to be understood. The Lord Jesus has kindly and mercifully received us and accepted us by our faith in Him; and He has made us "every whit clean" through the Word which He has spoken to us. And he that is washed needs not anymore, but to wash his feet. We are in the sanctification and growing-up process, unto the discipline of the mind of Christ.
  • Mable Arrington
    I got thatwe are full of all the sins that GOD doesn't approve of but HE said we are already approved to GOD and we're going to do this but GOD can cleanse us from all those things we are blind by the sins of this world and lust of the world and flesh but we can becleansed from these sinful nature.
  • A disciple
    Eutychus (lastly); When we are tempted, we are drawn away by our own lusts and enticed. We ALL are the same in that respect. But the one who is truly right with the Lord and walking in truth hates sin and hates the temptations to sin. We hate and war against our own natural desires for what is forbidden, AND WILL NOT YIELD TO THEM! If we ever do, even for a moment; we burn with shame and repent!
  • A disciple
    Eutychus (cont.); We have to be very careful about what we say, because the things that come from our hearts and innermost thoughts either justify us or condemn us. We have to think about what we say, and WHY we say it. If a man is still wrestling with selfishness and sinning like it was a serious conflict in him or as you call it a rivalry; where is the evidence of grace? Where is the repentance?
  • A disciple
    Eutychus; I'm glad you bring up these things; for it is a diabolical technique used by the devil through MANY supposed well meaning Pastors and Teachers these days. But let's examine just exactly it is that you're suggesting. What "rivalry" between the LORD God and the devil? And what "rivalry" for the truly saved and converted Believer who wishes to live with a good conscience toward God and man?
  • Eutychus
    Verses 7-15...the age old rivalry between "Commandment and Convenience". It is inconvenient, therefore, we "let it slide". Of course, the question is...Don't that suit God? Does letting it slide please God? Do we do things after God's way, or in a way we hope, we pray, we think, is God's way, for sake of convenience.
  • BSP
    Verses 20-23~ Jesus showed that these wicked things that take place come out of a person's bad heart condition. We must be careful that we do not take in bad things through what we read, watch, and what we listen to.
  • Kenny
    What come out of a man Is what defines or defiles Him. This is why we need Jesus in our heart that he will rule our through and by the Holy Ghost, Amen.
  • 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.
  • Obbie Beal
    WOW! ... the commandments of men..... the commandment of God.... . WOW!
  • Skyler
    I love God he is my hero
  • BSP
    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.
  • BSP
    Jesus way saying that many were just paying lip service to him. They didn't really have a clean heart in their worship.
  • Melissa Martinez
    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 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.
  • Dee
    he also said he is the end to the law
  • JP
    I think you're wrong. Read Acts chapters 10 and 15.
  • Outrider
    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!
  • Ronald Schlager
    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
  • Eaglesrock
    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 for verse 9
    Paul keep the commandments so why would say they not necessary?
