Choking in rules

Referring to religious traditions that forbid any practice not commanded in the New Testament, a friend of mine proposed a witty slogan: “If we wrapped ourselves up any tighter in rules, we’d likely choke.” But there can be humility to considering such rules. Or you can look at them from the cultural perspective I like to practice. If people experienced the power and authority of God while following certain rules, we don’t need to abandon those rules to experience God ourselves, and they may turn out to be more than just rules.
