Topic: COMPLETE IN HIM. Part 2.
Text: Colossians 2:8,10.
8: Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.
10: So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority. NLT.
Sound teaching of the word of God is absolutely important if we must continue in faith.
Apostle Paul was a detailed teacher of God’s word, he had so much concerns about how some preachers were preaching erroneously. He was always careful so that his listeners will not be misguided.
In verse 8 of our text he warned them about some kind of teachings, he called those teachings high sounding nonsense. These are teachings that are not bible based, they are empty philosophies, not sound teachings.
Why was he sounding like that? It is simply because he understood that such teaching will not bring them to completeness in Christ. That will be synonyms to training medical students with lecturers who do not have sound knowledge of medicine; it will eventually increase death rate.
Many Christians are dead spiritually because of high sounding nonsense from false preachers.
Something caught my attention here, look at it in verse 8 of our text, ‘… high sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and the spiritual powers of this world. This means some teachings come from spiritual powers, from demons.
Let me give you instances you can relate with; telling people to pray naked facing a particular place, instructing people to wear particular colour of clothes during prayer, reciting Psalms in water and bathing with such. Giving some strange prescriptions to people are all high sounding nonsense that can mislead you, beware of such prescriptions.
False doctrines won’t make you complete in him. Be wise. God bless you.
* Lord, help me not to be misled.
* Make me complete in you in Jesus name.
