God Is not Served By Human Hands
Today on #CrackYourBible’s apologetics / Bible study, we’re talking about how God isn’t impressed with man-made tradition, such as those found in the Orthodox and Catholic Churches.
✝️ From the Bible we know that
- “The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.” – Acts 17:24-25 ESV
“And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written,
“‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’
You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” And he said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition!” – Mark 7:6-9 ESV
