Don't Be Deceived - Colossians 2:8

Study God's Word and Don't Be Deceived by Worldly Philosophies
If all we do is hear God's Word, we become deceived (James 1:22). 

We need to look at it intently, study it, and live it (James 1:25). 

We recognize error only when we have a mature and growing knowledge of God. 

Colossians 2:4 warns us against being deceived by arguments that are persuasive, smooth, enticing, fine-sounding, well-crafted, sounding plausible.* 

How many students have been persuaded by a teacher to give up their "unscientific" creation beliefs (2 Peter 3:3-5)? 

How many Christians have been convinced by our immoral culture that homosexuality is right even though God calls it wrong (Romans 1:26-27)? 

How many Christians have accepted the popular secular teaching about esteeming self instead of the Biblical teaching about denying self (Matthew 16:24; 2 Timothy 3:1-5)?

Dear, Christians, there are thousands of false philosophies in our world. Let's prepare our minds for action (1 Peter 1:13).

"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." Colossians 2:8

  2. Vese 32 if you APPROVE what they do God will hudge you also Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them
