Today there was communion at my church and they practice feet washing. I participated but I wasn't sure if I should because I remembered your post about feet washing. And I re-read it just now to refresh my memory. Your last sentence is this, "If any men mimic the washing of feet for a religious purpose; it is without a value, but a mere publicity deception."
Does that apply in all cases? Because I don't believe my participation was motivated by a publicity stunt, I mean, I told God, "God I don't know if this offends you but please accept my heart" before I did it. I guess I want to understand if you said that last sentence because it offends God, as we cannot wash anyone's sin or because religious leaders have made it a "tradition" and lost its purpose etc? I hope my question makes sense.
