Traditions of Man

"You disregard God's commandment but cling to human tradition."  He went on to say, "How well you have set aside the commandment of God in order to uphold your tradition!” (Mark 7: 8-9)

"Traditions of man" that are not in the Bible:

1) The only thing you need is the Bible

2) Intimacy between spouses trumps all other marital moral considerations

3) Being happy and remarried without having previous marriages to living spouses declared null by the Church trumps Christ’s teaching on divorce

4) Population fears trump God’s command to be fruitful and multiply

5) I don’t need to talk to others about Jesus even though Christ says, right before leaving, that we are to baptize all nations

6) Surely pretty much everyone is saved even though Jesus says the road is wide that leads to destruction and those who enter through it are MANY

7) The highest virtue is getting along even though Jesus says He came to bring not peace but a sword of division

8) Jesus just wanted us to eat bread and drink grape juice together
