Man-Made Religion Exposed

August 28, 2016 Speaker: Noah Hartmetz Series: Colossians

Topic: Sunday Morning Service Scripture: Colossians 2:16–19

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).
