in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the institutions of men."
1 Corinthians 15:2
by which also you will be saved, if you so retain it as I preached it to you, unless you have believed without sufficient grounds.
Vain man, must I show you how lifeless a thing faith is, without its effects?
Let no man condemn you, from an affectation of humility, in worshipping of Angels, boldly prying into matters which he knows nothing of, being vainly puft up with his Jewish conceits:
1 Timothy 1:4
or trouble their heads with fables and endless genealogies, which rather promote disputes than the gospel-dispensation:
1 Timothy 4:1
Now the spirit says expresly, that in the latter times some shall abandon the faith, by giving credit to seducing spirits, and the doctrine concerning demons;
not doating on Jewish Fables, and the tenets of men, that deviate from the truth.
for the mind is better improv'd by the gospel-dispensation, than by the distinctions about meats, in which some have been so uselesly vers'd.
"I declare to every one that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if any one shall add to these things, God shall strike him with the plagues that are written in this book:
1 Corinthians 15:14
and if Christ be not risen, then our preaching is empty talk, and your faith even meer amusement.
