Traditions of Men

Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition. - read Mark 7

This is a good time of year to look back and see what has been done for the kingdom of God.

There is the Church, those that have a relationship with God and each other through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

There are churches, made up of people, some with those relationships, some without. Some church goers do not know the joy of a relationship with God. Some churches are as Jesus Christ called the scribes and Pharasies; hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead bones.

Sadly, if a hypocrite is getting between you and God, by definition he is closer than you are. Look at God, seek his help, he will respond where people will fail.

Unless God has specifically called you to a dead church, it is time to leave it and join the Church and fellowship with the body of believers. Pray, and see where God would have you go.

I can give you a list of the ways to tell a church is not connected to God, but it is better if the Holy Spirit leads you out, and then into the Church.

Get your relationship right with God. Take some time and take your Bible and pray.

Let God guide you, not the traditions or teachings of men.

The laws and traditions of men may be a comfort for a short while, but they tie you to a false value system.

The joy of a relationship with God is eternal.

Jesus is Lord.
