Tradition versus Christ

Tradition versus Christ – Ray Ortlund


  1. Oscar, there is nothing inherently wrong with tradition until it obscures ones faith in Christ or worse opposes the person and work of Christ. That was the issue in the instances of Jesus healing on the Sabbath (ie Mark 3:1-6).

  2. That is a good point. Sometimes the pendulum swings so far the other way that every service has to be different because if you do the same thing two days in a row you already have a "tradition" which has become the four letter word for evangelicals. Wonder how many people would be-able to see Christ in a high church expression lke a Anglican liturgical worship service?
    C.S.Lewiss talks about the huge breakthrough that happened on the “Day of saint Mark” and after “absolution”. He went to a Anglican “high church”. The riches are deep and great. Have to love it.
