About the event
BEGINS SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 10 at 3:00pm
In writing to the Colossian brethren, Paul describes the supremacy of Christ to a church that had begun to drift away from the faith. False teachers had crept in and began teaching a gospel that mixed together: Greek philosophical ideas, Pagan cultic practices, Jewish religious traditions along with the teachings of Christianity. These men blended all of these components into a "new" gospel which, they claimed, would give people a more dynamic spiritual experience. Instead of faith practiced in loving obedience as Jesus had taught.
Paul's point here is – who needs human philosophy and cultural rituals and human effort when the Supreme Lord has personally undertaken the task of saving those who were condemned to death by sin? No amount of human wisdom and effort could accomplish what the Supreme Lord had accomplished for them – and for us!
