Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditions of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. — Colossians 2:8

Praying the world will read God's Word for themselves, and not rely on what someone else tells them His Word says or means.

    1. Absolutely. Who better to teach us than the LORD? We know “man” is flawed, we know “man” will interpret things to be the way he either thinks it should be or maybe if he is doing something that he doesn’t consider too bad, therefore won’t tell it like it is. Of course, being human sometimes we just plain get things wrong. These are just a few reasons on a long list of many reasons. So, again why would we listen to anything but the Living Word of God?

  1. Great scripture miss Margaret!

    That warning makes me think about systematic theologies and denominational traditions.

    Think about this miss Margaret, (in context of that warning in that verse that you posted here)…

    How many times do people first go to see what their religious gurus believe about something, and consult scripture afterwards?

    Think about… creeds, confessions, and denominational statements of faith.

      1. Great point sister!

        I know someone who fits that perfectly.
        This person does exactly as you describe, while simultaneously lives in fornication, and teaches her kids that there’s nothing wrong with shacking up.
        And she frequently slaps her little girl in the face.

        But she’s all about being a “Christian.”
