Challenging Traditions

“Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread” (Matthew 15:2).

Challenge the assumptions with which you are asked to work. If a careful study [of Scripture] convinces you they are correct, follow them faithfully. If, however, you are convinced they are wrong, try either to revise them, or abandon them. Do not repeat proven errors!

John R. Mott (1865-1955)
