How much religion, tradition, and ceremony can a man know and observe and yet not know God?  Well, the Jews observed thousands of passovers yet never saw CHRIST, OUR PASSOVER.  They slew thousands of lambs and never saw CHRIST, THE LAMB OF GOD.  They kept thousands of sabbaths and never knew the rest of CHRIST, [...]
