You have died with Christ, and he has set you free from the evil powers of this world. So why do you keep on following rules of the world, such as,
"Don't handle, don't eat, don't touch."
Such rules are mere human teaching about things that are gone as soon as we use them.
These rules may seem wise because they require strong devotion, humility, and severe bodily discipline. But they have no effect when it comes to conquering a person's evil thoughts and desires.
