I find it very interesting that thousands of years ago the prophet Isaiah warned of the commandments of men that lead people away from God. The same is true today. For over 1900 years the Gentile nations have followed commandments of men (man-made rules, as if they were doctrines) that have led people away from an authentic vibrant relationship with God. What have we been missing because we yield to man instead of God?
And the Lord said:
“Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men" - Isaiah 29:13
‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far away from me. Their worship of me is useless, because they teach man-made rules as if they were doctrines. - Mark 7:7
