Tradition vs. True Worship

Tradition vs. True Worship

Mar 15, 2020

Passage: Mark 7:1-23

Preacher: Bishop Jayson Quiñones

Series: When Necessary


All of us hold to certain traditions—some good, some not so good. The word tradition means, a custom or belief transmitted from generation to generation. Religious tradition is a doctrine believed to have divine authority though not in the Scriptures. (in Christianity) doctrine not explicit in the Bible but held to derive from the oral teaching of Jesus and the Apostles. (in Judaism) an ordinance of the oral law not in the Torah but held to have been given by God to Moses. It is important to remember, Jesus said, “the Father is seeking worshipers, who will worship Him in spirit and truth.” While we tend towards ritual and tradition, God is seeking those whose lives are given to His worship, and the result will be a life of witness to the world!


When religious traditions become greater than the gospel, they hinder disciple-making

Main Points

1. Personal legalism can be a good thing until it becomes a church requirement: (vv.1-5)
2. Recognize the impotence of traditionalism: (vv.6-13)
3. Commit to true worship—Jesus above all: (vv.13-23)
