This is an excerpt from my upcoming book:
The Bible itself is an authoritative record of what God and his Apostles have commanded. Why should we even bother with any of the Bible if we do not except the whole of it? “But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” – James 2:9-10 (KJV)
Remember not to pass judgement on scripture for it is the Word of God and you make yourself the judge of God. The Bible is meant to transform every part of your life not just some of it. Our culture and mannerism can lead us astray many times over. We create certain habits that were from cultural influences that are contradictory to the Word of God. Things such as sex before marriage, fasting, proper human relationships and even critical thinking are influenced by the social structures around us. It is both undeniable and dangerous.
Many instances of your persecutions will be as a result of you wanting to follow exactly what Jesus and the Apostle taught. There are some of these traditions of the Apostles that are completely ignored today or explained away by culture and progressivism. For this logical argument I will use the head covering debate but you can put in any apostolic tradition you choose into the logical argument.
- Apostolic traditions that are recorded in the New Testament are binding to the modern Church.
- Female Head covering is an apostolic tradition.
- Therefore Female Head covering is binding on the modern Church.
