Discussion for Colossians 2

  • 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.
  • Jeremiah 31;33
    2 corinthians 3.Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
  • Andrea
    Not sure if I understood vs 8 ' let no man judge you for what you eat and drink and the holy days.

    Each time I eat pork I felt guilty after.
    Should I feel better now that I read this scripture?
  • Wayne
    Let no man judge you meat and in drink or in respect an Holy day the new moon or the sabbath days. But the body is of Christ.
  • Rick Sparks
    I think there is a lot more to this chapter.I have read it several times,and I am going to keep reading it till the Holy Spirit gives me complete understanding.
  • BSP
    Verse 8 shows that we must be careful not to be fooled by philosophy or human wisdom.
