Last week we looked at Christ’s high view of the authority of scripture. Yet many denominations and Christians hold to manmade traditions over God’s Word.

Now if you talked to any of those groups, they’d say, “We believe in the authority of scripture.”

The Pharisees would have been furious if you accused them of having a low view of scripture. They would say, “How dare you! We’ve given our lives to God’s Word. We spend much of our day reading it, memorizing it, meditating on it, teaching it. How dare you accuse us of having a low view of scripture.”

 The problem is they held more tightly to their traditions, their manmade applications of God’s Word.
