here @ Bible Gateway), is hovering around that list. The indictment Christ serves to His listeners is stark in its clarity and implications. They have placed and consider their tradition as more important than the Word of God.
I have seen this with groups of people going through our workshops. They share practices that are common, traditional, in their congregations for which, as we begin to observe the text of the Bible, they can find no support.
Seeing that in those people, alerts and warns me to the reality that I may be doing the same thing. I am becoming more and more aware of things believers say; practices we hold dear, teach, and recommend that frankly cannot be supported by scripture.
It scares me. I do not want to hear from the Lord that I have invalidated His Word.
