From the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus men have attempted to follow him by building narrow structures around doctrines that may or may not reflect the truth of the Scripture they suppose to base it on. Many Christian religions, when teaching about their foundational doctrine on which they base their faith, refer the seeker to the tradition of their particular church rather than the biblical basis. Traditions appear in many ways in formal religion, but the most obvious is in ceremonial and sacramental worship. In the pages that follow, I will attempt to show the importance and the absolute necessity of getting past the traditions of men. It is not my intention here to attack religions, but rather to show the error of accepting a tradition over scriptural truth. When speaking of religion, in this book I refer to the system that has been set in place, and not necessarily all the people that have membership in such a group. Robert A.
