Honestly, can you provide any passage in the Bible that expresses what you just said?
Have you ever quoted scripture to a Talmudic Jew? What would you imagine the problem with that is? They see the Bible through the lens of the Talmud. The rebbes have taught them the "correct interpretation" of everything. They've taught them the "oral tradition" from the old grey heads of their faith.
A Jew quoted to me some New Testament scripture, "proving" that Christians are taught that Jesus'...
Here is the NASB95 translation of Matthew 15:3: "And He answered and said to them, “Why do you yourselves transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?"
Do folks transgress the commands of God to benefit their tradition or do they transgress the commands of God in order to follow their tradition's doctrines. YLT has "because of your tradition?"

The Greek word translated "for the sake...

2 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my...
David told his son Solomon;
1Ch_28:9 And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.
1Ch_28:21 And, behold, the courses of the priests and the Levites, even they shall be with thee for all the service of the house of God: and...
I was listening to a regular radio prog of a well-known evangelist who was killed in a plane crash in 1982, who was supposed to be indy fundy Baptist. While I'm not a regular listener, I happened to be listening today, His sermon was supposed to be about taking drugs, not only illicitly, but for supposed beneficial effects. He started out fine, but then began talking about some old doc who never prescribed a drug, but supposedly had a high cure rate, then, about abuse of 'sleeping pills'. He...
