mean, anything the local church MUST have, or observe, to be allegedly "right
added to biblical truth which is 100% in agreement with the Word of God is redundant
and, at the very least, a distraction from the absolute and unique authority of
the Word of God. Your best effort and amendment to God's Word makes the truth
of the Word of God "of none effect" in some way.
7:13 (KJV) Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which
ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
