Discussion for Colossians 2

    Felicia:You answered your last post by your first post amazing and Mike confirmed it. O foolish Galatians who hath bewitched you--- Galatians 3:1
  • Mike
    Worship ONLY Jesus. Outside of Jesus, we are to worship NO One else or anything else - THis includes angels, men, statues, traditions etc. Do not allow satan to TRICK you through blind men teaching/talking about things NOT by scriptures; often time by their pride and arrogant head knowledge. God has rewarded us His Truth(Jesus). Therefore be humble
  • Karl
    to Felicia - you sure picked a good verse to ponder on. Just my interpretation - a sincere and humble trust in the teachings put forth by JESUS, and a rejection of any vain embellishments or interpretations put forth by those who would claim insights based in the vanities of false imaginations. You sure picked a good chapter - so much good advice for us all in this one. Hope that helps?

    Verse 18 Can someone explain what this means? Please. Thank you.
  • Felicia
    Verse 16
    Christ is all we need for salvation. We
    don't need to be on a particular diet or observe some kind of a religious exercise. Neither do we have to seek God by means of other religious cults or unbiblical philosophies. Christ alone holds the answers to true meaning of life. Because Christ is Life, He is the unique source of knowledge and power for the Christian life.
  • Wayne
    Andrea, read v. 14. The old covenant was ordinances. We are free from the religious rituals of the past. Paul says was contrary to us. Nailed to His cross. We are free by His grace. Jesus says not that which goes into the mouth defiles the man but that which comes out. So we are not to be judged by eating, such as pork, or drinking.
