Colossians 2:16-23 Now that you have Christ, what do you need to do to ensure that your salvation is complete? Do you need to be more humble? Do you need to keep a list of religious rules or traditions? Do you need to increase your level of self denial? Paul answers these questions resoundingly: NO, let no one judge you, let no one disqualify you, insisting on anything but Christ!
Colossians 2:8 Paul focuses on our walk with Christ, which is rooted in our conversion. Sanctification flows from justification, and Paul points us to how careful we must be in understanding the parts of salvation. Worldly thinking cannot be allowed to influence Christian belief. It is a danger to the church.
