Pastor Noah's outline is below. We pray this will be a helpful resource in your walk with Christ.
Two implications exposing the soul-destroying deficiencies of every man-made religion:
1. Man-made religion does not adequately understand Christ (16-17).
A. Its insistence on Jewish practices (16)
B. Its OT misunderstanding highlighted (17)
2. Man-made religion focuses on personal experience to further spiritual maturity (18-19).
A. Its insistence on mystical practices(18a; cf. 16).
B. Its vain focus on private revelations (18b).
C. Its neglect of Christ as the source of spiritual maturity (19).
