By: Jon Arvin | August 16, 2023

Jon Arvin distinguishes between commands, which are obligations imposed by God, and traditions, which are instructions passed down from people. He emphasizes that traditions, while not inherently bad, should not be treated as equivalent to God's word and that they are subject to change and interpretation. The text encourages a thoughtful examination of traditions and their role in faith and community, emphasizing the need for discernment and an awareness of how traditions can affect the building of bridges between individuals and generations.
