Is your church teaching Gods commandments or man's traditions. Yes, I am aware that some traditions are to be passed down from generation to generation. But here lately I am hearing a lot more about what seems right unto man and not what God said in his word. Be careful! Are you looking for religion or salvation there is a difference?
The church that I attends is teaching God's commandments and not those that are comfortable or acceptable to man. The church at large is in big trouble with YHVH (GOD) because they have failed to fullfill the great commission that was initated by Jesus the Christ and the Disciples. That is to go into all the world and preach the GOSPEL. What the chruch has done is gone into the world and taught their denomiational beliefs and creeds. I saw in a vision the set aside (Holy Men and Women of YHVH) stuck in mud up to their necks struggling to get out and lead out by a Light from Heaven. Churches are holding back these men and women to speak what YHVH wants them to preach and proclaim, but most churches want to hear Prophets and Prophetess only preach what YHVH is going to give me and not what his judgement is and what judgment is coming. We are now re-living the days of ENOCH! WOW to the inhabitants of the Earth for the fallen ones have come down to the Earth.
Why I agree with you overall statement. We must remember the church is the Body of Christ. Denominations are useful to Yahweh and can be used to reach different types of people different types of ways. Remember, there were 12 tribes (denominations) of Israel. There were 7 churches (denominations) that Yahweh sent word through John to write about. Denominations are not the problem, disrespect of a denomination is the problem. I have been in a couple of different ones as a musician and I realized that each has it's proper place. Baptist may be an elbow, Pentecostals might be a knee, Methodist a nose, the point is Yahweh reaches people through these denominations, we just have to learn to respect them. There is nothing wrong with man-made rules and regulations in the church so long as they do not add to or take away from Yahweh's holy Word.
Side note: I appreciate the fact that you spell His name the correct way!!! Good for you, it should always be YHVH. I spell it the way it sounds (Yahweh) so that people can pronouce it properly.
Rules and some traditions in the church were established for those in the church that are not saved. When you are truly saved Yahshuah certainly gives you the power to discern right from wrong, but when you are not, if you are not subject to some sort of rule are tradition, you are not better than a heathen in the House of Yahweh.
Yahweh's commandments were a shadow of Christ. Now that Yahshuah Christ has given us grace, when we accept him inot our heart, he fills us with his will, whereas there no more need to follow a letter. It is now written on the tables of our heart. I John 2:27 "But the anointing which ye have received of HIm abideth in you and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things and is truth and is no lie and even asit hath taught you, ye shall abide in him."
The church body of today is more concerned with man, man-made doctrines and legalism.
The church body of today is more influenced by the world than by the spirit of God.
The church body of today is a billion-dollar business.
The church body of today are being influenced by movements (black movement, feministist movement especially) instead of the move of God.
We need to get back to the Word of God!!!
I don't care what the world says what does the Word say?!

I don't care what the world says what does the Word say?!"Mazel Tov~~Now if only folks would go and study the real thing instead of all the misconstruction. Simply read read read the Torah, the Instructions given to the bride Israel with 600,000 Souls as witness until it is Echad with you Until it becomes One with you,... then you will have found the Vestibule of heaven.
Otherwise all you have is the wilderness without clear direction
My suggestion is discover who you really are as a Nation of Peoples within the Diaspora and then the Master will guide you up higher.

Dear Sir / Madam,
Calvary greetings servant of God and awesome greetings from the leprosy patients, compliments of the day!

The awareness of leprosy became visible in the late 1980’s in the Northern and Western part of Nigeria. As a research Doctor on house job in the University of Ibadan, a Western University in Nigeria. I was designated to attend to leprosy patients and I felt the humorous life they live without care and shelter.
These came to me as challenge to my profession and my being, which got me motivated to care for leprosy patients and sufferers still on my research, I came in tough with some bodies whom had the same vision with Dr. Tinjani Yususf, this led to the formation of Leprosy Alleviation Program (LAP) a non governmental organization in Nigeria.
We are soliciting for support to care and meet up the leprosy patients their needs in and within the country and outside the country, as we have a government that does not make provision for the sick not to talk about sufferers of disease like leprosy, which the death rate annually has increased to about 80% and sufferers 20%. On our effort to meet their demands that is why we seek your kind gesture to enable us meet their needs, this is as a result of insufficiency on our part to meet up their requirements and upkeeps and extend our awareness all over Nigeria and sub-regions in West African Countries that do experience leprosy.
