Traditions of men

Leave a comment

On one occasion when the Pharisees were criticizing Jesus and His disciples, Jesus noted, “neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men.” Mark 7:8. As I was reading some Facebook posts today, it occurred to me that we are doing a similar thing today. Not the same, but similar.

What I’m seeing is that many well-intentioned Christians put up Facebook posts that sound spiritual and encouraging, but in fact have no basis in the New Testament. And because many people spend much more time in Facebook than they do reading the scriptures, their values will be led away from New Covenant truth.

Hopefully Christians will start to really think through what they are posting, and verify that their ideas are in line with Jesus, and not merely a nice-sounding bit of fluff.
