Commandments of God – Traditions of Men

“Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, ‘Honour thy father and mother:’ and, ‘He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.’ But ye say, ‘Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, ‘It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;’ and honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, ‘This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me. But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.'”  ~Jesus  (Matthew 15:1-9)

  1. THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN? BY STEVE FINNELL

    The scribes and Pharisees had a spiritual problem, they liked man-made doctrine better than God’s commandments.

    Matthew 15:1-9 ….3…”Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition?…..9 And in vain they do worship Me, Teaching as doctrine the commandments of men.” (NKJV)

    When Jesus said unless one is born of water he cannot enter the kingdom of God; was he expressing God’s commandment? (John 3:5)

    When men say you have to be born of amniotic fluid to enter the kingdom of God; it that a doctrine of God or a teaching of men?(John 3:5)

    How could born of water be anything but water baptism?

    When Jesus said unless one is born of water and the Spirit, He was giving requirements in order to enter the kingdom of God.

    Being born of water does not mean you have to exist in order to enter the kingdom of God. The existence of men is obvious. Existence is not a term for pardon.

    When Jesus said “he who believes will be saved,” was He stating a commandment of God? (Mark 16:16)

    When Jesus said he said ” is baptized will be saved,” was He stating a commandment of God? (Mark 16:16)

    When men say “men are baptized after they are saved.” is that a commandment of God?

    When men say ” men are baptized as an act of obedience and it is not essential for the forgiveness of sins”, is that a doctrine of God or doctrine of men?
