At Matt 15:3 we see that traditions have become part of the Christian belief. What are some of these traditions?

Update:

(2 Timothy 4:3, 4) For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the wholesome teaching, but according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled. 4 They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories.

    Matthew 15:3 “But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?”

    Jesus was speaking to the scribes and Pharisees and how they have made void the Word of God by

    their traditions of man. These traditions were of man not God.

    The same goes on today. Look at what is going to happen this Sunday.

    Instead of praying and thinking about what God has done for us with the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ,

    the day will be spent playing with colored eggs and easter bunnies. This is not how you give thanks to

    God for Salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.

    God is not happy with the traditions of men then or Now.

    Jesus was referring to Jewish traditions. He was speaking to the Scribes and Pharisees.

    Being lying goddam hypocrites.

    That's clearly a big one.

    NONE OF YOU live by christ's teachings in the New Testament.

    You are all traitors to christ and his teachings.

    Must be a tradition by now, because you all do it, every day.
