Man-made rules vs the Holy Bible

Posted by admin on 2 February 2014 in Matthew |

I am reading the Gospel of Matthew these days. In the recent 3 days, I read Matthew 23. I remember decades ago when I read this chapter first time in my life, it was mind-blowing. Today I would share one important point in this chapter.

Matthew 23:4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.

The religious leaders created too many man-made rules to follow. Keeping all these rules was too hard.  And these rules altered the real meaning of the Holy Bible (Proverbs 30:6, Deuteronomy 4:2, 2 Peter 3:16).

The issue is summarized as “Man-made rules vs the Holy Bible”.

It is easy for us to create man-made rules as they did.

Check whether you keep “man-made rules” or “the Holy Bible”. Some might think there was no difference but there is big difference between them.

Think based on the Holy Bible. Examine whether the man-made rules you blindly follow are biblical. And start to follow the Holy Bible.

Enforcing “man-made rules of religion” is a great sin (15).

Matthew 23:15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.
