" Traditions of Men "
The Holy Bible says " the traditions of men cause
the word of GOD, to be null and void", and without effect.
When a preacher stands in the pulpit, and starts telling
church members, they should cut, or not cut their hair, then
they are speaking traditions.
The list goes on and on, from church to church, there are
many reasons, that churches divide themselves, over trivial
matters that have nothing to do with bible teachings.
One may say " we don't believe women should wear make-up
to services ", or females should not wear long pants.
Another may believe musical instruments, are to not be
used. Others think,togunes can be spoken by all, during
I could go on and on. These separate beliefscause GODS truths,
to be mixed in, with men's. This is not bible teachings,
but traditions teachings.
When men take any doctrine into church except the bible,
to be taught, they "in effect kill" the word of GOD.
The apostle Paul, had much to say about this. "Let there
be no divisions amoung you". Except, walk not in the council
of the wicked, nor shall you eat in the council of the
Nor should you stand, in the council of the wicked. These
are the only separations, which the word teaches. The word
says " we are saved by grace, and not, by works,
lest any man boast".
We are saved by grace, by us having faith, in JESUS. For
by His abundant mercy and grace, we are sanctified. By us
having faith, in Him, we are thereby justified.
When we let others, decieve us into believing that we
are saved, "by our works", then our faith is dead. Whereby
the bible says "faith without works, is dead". True faith,
walks by faith, and not sight. When you walk by faith, you
trust GOD. When you trust GOD, you also trust in his word.
When you trust in His word, you trust that His word works.
When you believe that His word works, you then will speak
His words. You will then have "works" by speaking his words.
I speak not a lie, but do not take any man's word, "as"
the truth of GODS. All of GODS truths, are written in his
God, would rather you read it with your "own two eyes",
but for the sake of those, who have yet to read it, I speak.
For if I, by speaking the truth, can stir someones soul
enough for them to want to "see for themselves", then the
words that I write, shall not be written in vain.
