Colossians 2:6-8 ” So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.”

Paul is warning the people of watered down, feel good preaching that seems more like theater or a concert than of Church…and his warning continues for us today. Truth and wisdom comes from God and His Word, not from man’s “interpretation” of it for you. And if human “wisdom” cannot be aligned seamlessly to God’s Word…it’s not really wisdom at all but just man’s sentiments. Our dependence on God mandates that we then be willing listeners and humble receivers of His Word, not foolish, senseless, and deceptive opinions of men. Charles Spurgeon put it well when he wrote, “Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet. We are walkers through the city of this world, and we are often called to go out into its darkness; let us never venture there without the light giving Word, lest we slip with our feet.”
