For Best Results Teach only God’s Law

John 5:8 “Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.”

Jesus healed a man and then told him to take his mattress and walk.

The Pharisees said that was a Sabbath violation. Christ never taught against God’s Law, Christ’s own Law. The Pharisees added their tradition to the Law of God. The Sabbath Day’s journey is an example. God’s Law nowhere includes any statute about how far one is to travel on a Sabbath. The idea is to rest, not travel on the Sabbath. This was Pharisaical tradition added to promote violation of God’s Law.

The Pharisees taught their own version of the Law. That is very common today as many churches add their own ideas for membership, doctrine and tradition.
