Matthew 15:8-9 (HCSB)

These people honor Me with their lips,
but their heart is far from Me.
 They worship Me in vain,
teaching as doctrines the commands of men.”

     One way to ensure that our worship is in vain (fruitless, without purpose) is to teach the traditions of men as if they were true doctrines of God.  
     Interesting that Christ also points out that if one is teaching traditions of men as if they were the truth of God, one’s heart is far from me.
