  • Colossians 2:18-22
    Let no one rob you of your prize by self- abasement and worshiping of the angels, dwelling in the things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,and not holding firmly to the Head, from whom all the body, being supplied and knit together through the joints and ligaments, grows with God’s growth.If you died with Christ from the elements of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to ordinances,“ Don’t handle, nor taste, nor touch”( all of which perish with use), according to the precepts and doctrines of men?

As a nation that did righteousness, and didn’t forsake the ordinance of their God, they ask of me righteous judgments. They delight to draw near to God.‘ Why have we fasted,’ they say,‘ and you don’t see? Why have we afflicted our soul, and you don’t notice?’“ Behold, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and oppress all your laborers.

  • Isaiah 1:13-15
    Bring no more vain offerings. Incense is an abomination to me. New moons, Sabbaths, and convocations: I can’t stand evil assemblies.My soul hates your New Moons and your appointed feasts.

  • Ecclesiastes 5:2-7
    Don’t be rash with your mouth, and don’t let your heart be hasty to utter anything before God; for God is in heaven, and you on earth. Therefore let your words be few.For as a dream comes with a multitude of cares, so a fool’s speech with a multitude of words.When you vow a vow to God, don’t defer to pay it; for he has no pleasure in fools. Pay that which you vow.It is better that you should not vow, than that you should vow and not pay.Don’t allow your mouth to lead you into sin. Don’t protest before the messenger that this was a mistake. Why should God be angry at your voice, and destroy the work of your hands?For in the multitude of dreams there are vanities, as well as in many words; but you must fear God.
