Rightly Did Isaiah Prophesy of You

I just spent a good 3 and a half years of my life in classes focused of church tradition. There we study the “proper” way to do church. This causes me to wonder how often do we still do the following:

This people honors Me with their lips,
but their heart is far away from Me.
But in vain do they worship Me,
teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.

Matthew 15:7-9

And I love how Jesus could care less that the Pharisees were offended when he quoted this.

The the disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?”

But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”

Matthew 15:12-14
