…“Don’t touch this,” “Don’t taste that” and “Don’t handle the other”? “This”, “that” and “the other” will all pass away after use! I know that these regulations look wise with their self-inspired efforts at worship, their policy of self-humbling, and their studied neglect of the body. But in actual practice they do honour, not to God, but to man’s own pride. Colossians 2:23 (Phillips Ver)
Neither the split rail fence nor the no trespassing sign ever kept people out who wanted in. In the same way, the law with its rules and regulations, can never truly govern the soul of man. Eve will always taste the fruit, Adam will always disobey God. Only the power of the Holy Spirit in our life will break the cycle of sin and set us free to unlimited freedom found only in Jesus Christ!
