Default "We don't care for doctrines." - Lee

What is wrong with this statement by Lee?

"We don't care for doctrines."

Also I have posted a quote on my Facebook wall:

"Scripture alone is the true lord and master of all writings and doctrine on earth. If that is not granted, what is Scripture good for? The more we reject it, the more we become satisfied with men’s books and human teachers." — Martin Luther

— Matthew Barrett, from God’s Word Alone—The Authority of Scripture
And here comes a LC member commented to my post:

Actually if we focus merely in the written word and doesn't confirm to our experiences this will be a doctrine alone that damage us, this is what John 5:39-40 and matt.15:7-9 says

Joh 5:39 - You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that testify concerning Me.

Joh 5:40 - Yet you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.

Mat 15:7 - Hypocrites! Well has Isaiah prophesied concerning you, saying,

Mat 15:8 - “This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart stays far away from Me;

Mat 15:9 - But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as teachings the commandments of men.

We need teaching and doctrine but to focus on the things written in scriptures and throw it for our defense to ours is a big mistake that a believers the intention of the scriptures. We need to realized of aspect of knowledge the 1st aspect is the written word using our mental comprehension and the 2nd aspect of knowledge is the experienced of what was written that cause us to realized "the word I have spoken to you are spirit and are life"

Many believers seeking the right teaching and doctrine this is right ,again "merely " paying attention on this may cause us to damage our seeking God as life, I like this hymn 1110 stanza 2 it say

O what a shame — when Christ with all His riches,
Has come into the world, life to supply —
That man would live, not by Him, but by teachings,
So powerless these riches to apply.

While we are seeking the right teaching and doctrine do not forget that Christ came to give us life and having abundantly.
