Discussion for Colossians 2

    Many today are substituting God's Word for philosophies and traditions of men as verse 8 shows.
  • Dave BLACKLEY
    Verse 16. I shall agree with Bruce in that Paul was not given authority to alter Gods word and in like manner Jesus himself clearly states that he does not either, have that power. We do not dispute The Jesus bore our sins, God Forbid and that his life was sacrificed so that we may be forgiven. However man does not know sin, had it not been for the laws and statutes of God spoken through Moses.

    COLOSSIANS 2:8 BEWARE LEST ANY MAN SPOIL YOU THROUGH PHILOSOPHY AND VAIN DECEIT AFTER THE TRADITION OF MEN AFTER THE RUDIMENTS OF THIS WORLD AND NOT AFTER CHRIST

    V. 18, speaking of false religion. Common today. One such has angels on the top of their temples. Golden in color. Who aren't saved by grace, but feign righteousness and godliness in their appearances. Fake humility, fake spirituality, lost. Not holding the Head, who is Jesus Christ. Don't let them defraud, or steal, your life in Christ.
  • Irene123
    V. 18 is very simply saying we are not to worship angels, or light candles to graven images, nor pray to a woman statue, but to worship and pray to and give our praises to ONLY God - in Jesus' name. Those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (God is a spirit, not a graven image). Mary was 'just' and ONLY His mother; she followed Acts 2:38 with all the others in Acts ch. 2.
  • Wayne
    V.18- We are not to be persuaded or deceived by those who are not following Jesus but spreading another gospel , which is not another gospel. Therefore, if persuaded to leave the gospel of Christ, we lose our reward. Christ is the one who is truth and speaks the truth. He never pushes us away but draws us closer to Him. Trust in the Lord with all your heart!
