Tradition and Truth

In Mark chapter 7 Jesus is quoted in His confrontation with religious rule-keepers.  As they assail Him for not keeping petty rules and traditions, He points out other rules which contradict what God actually requires.  We believe Jesus did this to highlight that rules which men contrive do not necessarily honour God; and that hollow religion, made up of rules and content with controlling behaviour, sometimes actually contradicts the heart of God for people.

Jesus, God in the flesh, was 100% alligned with the heart of the Father and the religious imposters did not recognize this because their hearts we so far from God. Even though they followed the religious system of rules to the letter, they were bound by the letter which could not save them, and were not lead by the Spirit of God who leads sinners to freedom.
