Summer in Colossae - Colossians 2:6-8
Pastor Mike Hodges
Two prevalent philosophies/religions: Gnosticism and angel worship
Hollow and deceptive philosophy today:
- Know Jesus and the truth of God.
- False teaching is usually subtle.
—usually an exaggeration of some kernel of truth
—one element of truth taken out of context
—take a portion of the Bible and misuse it
- False teaching is usually attractive.
- False teaching will often be “Bible-quoting”.
2 Corinthians 10:5
- Never let tradition become more important than truth.
—things that make US comfortable
—things that push sinners away from God
—things the way they used to be
- Popular doesn’t mean right.
