Trojan Horse Enemies of the Church

Colossians 2:8, enemies infiltrating the Church
According to legend, thousands of years before Christ, the Greeks ended a 10 year siege of Troy by entering the city in a giant, hollow, wooden horse. 

The Trojans, thinking the horse a gift, brought it into the city where enemy soldiers crept out at night and opened the gates for the Greek Army. What the Trojans thought was a gift was actually their destruction. 

Hence the phrase: Beware Greeks bearing gifts. 

Satan also has a Trojan horse filled with hollow philosophies that are destroying our understanding of God. And we Christians have brought this horse into the Church thinking it's a gift.

These philosophies are based on human wisdom and they appeal to our fallen human nature because they are self-focused, not God-focused.

That's why Scripture warns us: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ." Colossians 2:8

May God give us strength to fight these false philosophies that have infiltrated the Church.

  2. Yes! It's amazing how much truth you're able to pack into these little 1 minute devotions. This subject in particular is near and dear to my heart as God has been challenging me with these same thoughts lately. Can't wait to read again next Monday!
