August 28, 2016 - Colossians 2:16-19

What does Colossians say about about religious/spiritual experience and tradition?

Pastor Noah's outline is below. We pray this will be a helpful resource in your walk with Christ. 

Two implications exposing the soul-destroying deficiencies of every man-made religion:

1. Man-made religion does not adequately understand Christ (16-17).
   A. Its insistence on Jewish practices (16)
   B. Its OT misunderstanding highlighted (17)

2. Man-made religion focuses on personal experience to further spiritual maturity (18-19).
    A. Its insistence on mystical practices(18a; cf. 16).
    B. Its vain focus on private revelations (18b).
    C. Its neglect of Christ as the source of spiritual maturity (19).
