#18 Chapter 6:1-11 Jesus heals on the Sabbath

Good Grief!! The Pharisees were so hung up on all the religious rules they didn't even want Jesus to heal someone on the Sabbath!

Can you imagine that?..

That's like going to church on Sunday and the preacher never allowing anyone pray for you to get well..Yikes!

But believe it or not many religious groups today have similar ridiculous rules...

When God gave Moses the 10 Commandments, #4 being "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it Holy" There's just no way He meant for it to get so distorted this way...

We really do need to be wary of the same kinds of things happening today in our churches...What kind of "rules" or men's traditions handed down through the generations or denominational afiliations do we keep but are actually a distorted version of what God really intended?

There are things the bible tells us we are told to do, but we don't do it...And..There are things we are told not to do, but we do it.

Picking and choosing from the bible what we will teach or not teach is just a bad...

Mark 7:13 "making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down"

I use to feel quilty when I had to work on a Sunday. But when I think about it, it just says to keep that day holy. I dont go to work anymore on Sunday. But I will do work like laundry and stuff. Jesus unlike the Pharisees was showing us we can do good things on Sunday. I dont believe if someone got a flat tire on the road A person driving by would not stop to help just because its a Sunday. Can you imagine on Sundays nobody doing anything to help one another. Yes we are to keep that day holy, and I cant think of a better way to do this, by helping one another. Jesus would want us to do that and not just Sundays but every day. I choose to follow His example not the Pharisees.
