The Commandment of God
Our calendar is replete with holidays. Though the manner in which those holidays are observed may vary according to personal or family tradition, all feel they are observing the same holiday. While these variances are fine for secular ritual, they are not appropriate for Christian life and worship. Religious organizations have so long practiced the doctrines and commandments of men that their adherents seem unaware that those traditions may have no basis in Scripture at all. Isaiah prophesied of those who honored the Lord with their lips, but whose heart was far from God. At the Seventh of Mark, the Savior declared that Isaiah’s prophecy was fulfilled in hypocrites who taught as doctines the commandments of men. Preferring their own tradition, they rejected the commandment of God.
