We deny the authority of Scripture when reading post-Biblical traditions and presumptions not actually found in Scripture back into Scripture.

This is especially evident with our current concepts of:

“Church”
“Worship”
“Communion”
“Tithing”
“Pastors”
“Sermons”

None of which, as commonly perceived today, are found in – and often are at odds with – the original language, meaning and context of the New Testament when written in the first century.

Let’s be like the New Testament Bereans and once again begin “examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.”

Only then can we truly say we have begun to accept the plenary authority of Scripture over all traditions and opinions to the contrary …

Including our own.
