“SLAVES TO TRADITION” TONIGHT 6/27/14 @ 10pm Central

Our traditions are not necessarily bad in and of themselves. When we advance a beloved belief or tradition to the point of rejecting a brother or sister in Christ we have gone too far. Thus the greater harm may be our practices more than our beliefs. But, how sound are the peculiar beliefs of our denomination of choice?

  1. “Our traditions are not necessarily bad in and of themselves” …. YOU CONTRADICT YOURSELF, duhhhhh …. FACT: traditions and customs are (wrong!) not Christian > is what got the Jews in trouble that’s why they are shelved until the end of the 7yr Tribulation …. history repeats itself, “Christians” (especially Blacks) are always looking for spiritual “ecstasies” …. NOTE: “sheep” are stupid, false prophets know this, i.e., TD Jakes, Osteen, TBN, etc.

    • Thank you once again for your rather pointed and often sarcastic comments.
      Traditions as I stated are not bad “in and of themselves” in the context that we ALL have and follow some types of traditions. (how about birthday celebrations – tradition)
      It’s when we raise them to the level of LAW that I am looking at.

      • AGAIN, no …. you’re not paying attention, the context is (the) “Church”, outside of communion and baptism, traditions and customs are WRONG …. birthdays (thats cute!) have nothing to do with any Christian (theology) doctrines …. better yet >>> prove my SARCASTIC comments wrong, name 1Scripture(s) pursuant to birthdays …. I double dare you, mmmmmmm ….

      • Oh yes, I am paying attention. Since you seem to know everything, get this:
        Communion IS a tradition as it wasn’t called that in scripture. Jesus just said as often as you do this, share a meal with drink, do it in remembrance of me.
        The “tradition” of “communion” cannot be separated from other traditions especially when man has hijacked the meaning and turned it into a performance to be done in ceremony.

        Now, I’ll give you SEVERAL scriptures regarding birthdays:
        The date, or day, of one’s birth was marked throughout Biblical history. More than one hundred times the phrase “years old” is given accompanied by a number. A few general examples…

        [Abraham, the man of faith] Genesis 17:1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty; walk before me and be blameless. (NIV)

        [Sarah, Abraham’s wife] Genesis 23:1 Sarah lived to be a hundred and twenty-seven years old. (NIV)

        [One of the believing spies sent into the Promised Land] Joshua 14:10-11 “Now then, just as the Lord promised, he has kept me [Caleb] alive for forty-five years since the time he said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the desert. So here I am today, eighty-five years old! 11 I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then. (NIV)

        [Wicked king] 2 Kings 21:1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-five years. His mother’s name was Hephzibah. (NIV)

        [Good king] 2 Kings 22:1 Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem thirty-one years. (NIV)

        [Good king] 2 Kings 18:1-2 In the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, Hezekiah son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign. 2 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-nine years. (NIV)

        Every one of these people kept track of, or marked the day of, their birth in some fashion for the purpose of keeping track of their age. As to any extent of this, Scriptures is silent, but it is certain that the marking, or commemorating of the day, in and of itself, is not wrong. Even in regards to Jesus, his parents did the same…

        Luke 2:41-42 Every year his parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. 42 When he [Jesus] was twelve years old, they went up to the Feast, according to the custom. (NIV)

        Does getting to go to the festival for the first time, when reaching a certain age, constitute a celebration? Every child would certainly hold this to be so! How many times have we heard a parent say, “When you are xx years old, you’ll get to do… “?

        So tradition or not?

      • “Communion IS a tradition as it wasn’t called that in scripture. Jesus just said as often as you do this, share a meal with drink, do it in remembrance of me” ….

        FACT: communion and baptism are NOT traditions > “Commands”, always point back to the Gospels, Acts, the Epistles, as normative Christian behavior …. birthdays ain’t there, nope !!!

        His family went to (the Feast) Jerusalem, according to the (tradition) custom, yes …. had nothing to do with (pay attention) celebrating “His” birthday …. is going to Jerusalem “Commanded” (N.T.) today, no !!!

        NOTE: birthdays is always marked (life span) as time, never “scriptural” celebrated …. celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Christmas, Easter, sure …. unless, you can (dogmatically) tie it to the Church, no ….
        “traditions of men” (denominations) spin whatevrrrr to get PAID = much of the foolishness in Churches today, ughhhhhhhh ….

        Whether I tune in to your episode is secondary …. just get your theology correct …. unfortunately, you will take this as a personal attack thus CANCEL your event, that figures ….

      • My theology is sound, just that I don’t present it as you wish.
        Also, you’re not so important that I would cancel anything because of what you said and/or think.
        Ministry to a friend was more important to me than a radio show.
        The “body” gets caught up in semantics, thus divisions ensue.

      • Anyway, this episode had to be cancelled so you will not be subjected to my teaching “error” (not that you would have tuned in anyway)

      • “as I wish”, no …. because, your Scriptures do not support your Argument …. you SPIN from “traditions” to “semantics” > that’s how divisions ensue !!!
