The Word of God is to be the basis of our walk and faith. There is no other foundation that we can walk upon. It really does not matter what I believe, what matters is what the Bible says! It is the Bible that is our source of spiritual nutrition. 1 Peter 2:2 says, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:” While we need teachers we trust, that will guidance us in our understanding, we need to allow the Holy Spirit to give us direct understanding of the Word of God. We must never believe something simply because a teacher says it is true, We must only believe it because it is clearly taught in the Word of God. No instruction that is not CLEARLY, taught in the Word of God should be embraces. We can use tradition to give meaning to some of the things we do, however, we must recognize the difference b3tween tradition and Scripture. We must recognize that tradition may change, but the truth of God’s Word remains forever! Truth must always trump tradition.
