Comment from KD
I've been asked about these lines in the first section of my last post (please read the whole section again before engaging this comment): "I'm not about to debate the distinctives or duplicities of such churches; and if you don't know why I'm not interested in the former because of the latter, I can't as well as won't even try to..."
Peterson's translation/paraphrase of Matthew 15 comes to mind as instructive: "Why do you use your rules to play fast and loose with God's commands?...You cancel God's command by your rules. Frauds! Isaiah's prophecy of you hit the bulls-eye: 'These people make a big show of saying the right thing, but their heart isn't in it. They act like they're worshiping me, but they don't mean it. They just use me as a cover for teaching whatever suits their fancy.'"
