Timothy 4:1-3

“Now the spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.”

The word of God tells us that the Lord’s Church would fall away from the true doctrine of Christ,  that men would begin to teach man-made doctrines, and that they would lead many away from the true doctrine of Christ.  Christ’s Apostles understood this well and they taught it to the people. In Timothy we learned how man would add their own traditions to Christ’s teachings leading many away from the truth. We must only follow the truth of Christ, not manmade traditions.
