Mark 2:23-28

Rules and regulations do not make up a religion. Whenever people forget the love and the forgiveness and the services and the mercy that are at the heart of religion and replace them with performance of rules and regulations, religion is in a decline. If the performance of our religion keeps us from helping someone in need, then our religion is not religion at all. We are all answerable for the times we put law, rule, and regulation over people. Be careful not to be too critical of the Pharisees.
