Beware of The Philosophies of Man


Colossians 2:8 says” See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.

Warning us about the philosophies of men of this world.

But there is a philosophy which is vain and deceitful; and while it pleases men’s fancies, hinders their faith: such are curious speculations about things above us, or no concern to us. Those who walk in the way of the world, are turned from following Christ.

fooled

The circumcision of the heart, the crucifixion of the flesh, the death and burial to sin and to the world, and the resurrection to newness of life, set forth in baptism, and by faith wrought in our hearts, prove that our sins are forgiven, and that we are fully delivered from the curse of the law. Through Christ, we, who were dead in sins, are quickened. Christ’s death was the death of our sins; Christ’s resurrection is the quickening of our souls.

You can cross reference that scripture with Ephesians 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.

1 Timothy 6:20 says” guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge.

With all the uproar over this new bill about same gender and transgender bathrooms, I have to say it just makes me sick to my stomach. Now I am not going to get into the whole matter on this devotion because we who are in Christ Jesus we know that this is a mockery of the word of God, we know it’s an abomination. This man-made lifestyle is designed by the devil himself. And now the powers of those in government want everyone to accept this new way of living, without giving any regards to how we feel about it. Personally I have many questions as to how wrong this is but these are the same people in government who told us that we can’t have Prayer in School, the Ten Commandments removed because they say that we shouldn’t force people religious views on them. But look what they are doing now?

They are forcing this new same gender bathrooms in our children’s public schools. See my point here? What they are doing is promoting evil and violence. This world is trying to remove God out of the way, but I am standing here tall and strong proclaiming that my God can not be removed! No matter how much evil you do My God will remain GOD!

In other words what these verses are telling us is not to put your confidence in your intellect or man’s intellect when it comes to the Word of God. Remember the World doesn’t understand the wisdom of God only God’s children receives the wisdom of God when we ask for it.

For the days are evil and it’s only gonna get worst, saints guard your heart for there are many who awaits to prey and turn you away from the truth of the Lord. Don’t listen to their doctrine, stay close to God stay in His Word. AMEN

  1. I appreciate the scriptures shared. Their warning is heeded! Yes indeed – “the days are evil”. But every day apart from God is/has ALWAYS been evil by default. The “new” political correctness related to gender neutral restrooms is nothing to lose faith over. There have been unisex facilities publically available for years. The change in name to “trans-gendered” was implicitly designed to cause just such reaction by opponents of gay rights. Christians have long been sidelined in their truly godly pursuits of evangelism by reactionary protests, rather than pro-active movements following the Holy Spirit. The devil laughs when he can get true believers focused on mundane social issues instead of the real business at hand – introducing a dying world to the ONLY hope, Jesus Christ. Staying close to God means NOT passing judgement and forgiving those who despitefully use any occasion of innocence to offend one’s beliefs. Do NOT be swayed by “popular” opinion. God is still on the throne and tolerance in love has won more to Christ than outrage exemplified by protest. For a balanced approach to EVIL, I suggest reading the Article: Explaining the Existence of Evil available by clicking this LINK >>> https://mjthompsons.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/explaining-the-existence-of-evil/. It attempts to provide insight into God’s reasons for allowing evil and His purpose behind such tolerance. Peace!

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Just this morning in my prayer walk I was talking yo God about all of this. And I know we the body of Christ has a responsibility. And no mattet what continues to happen in this world, my God is God
      And judgement is coming.

      1. Indeed God IS!!! And Judgment is surely coming, but we must leave such judgment up to God. There is a vast difference between righteous spiritual “discernment” and “judgment”. Often we say “in my judgment …” when what we really mean is “in my understanding (discernment)…” Yes, we can and should “judge” right from wrong, but passing the judgment upon another is reserved exclusively for God. Judge not lest you be judged and always remember that with whatever judgment you judge others, you will be judged. (Mt. 7:2)

  2. I recently developed a relationship with, then subsequently had my heart broke by, a transexual. I initiated this relationship, because, I genuinely don’t care about the whole gender thing.

    Don’t get me wrong – I’m heterosexual, and find people who dress-up to be silly. It’s just that, for me, sex and love are two different things. Obviously, they’re better together, but love is far more important to me than physical attraction – it’s just an impulse.

    But the point I’m getting at is, I fell in love with this transexual because of his mind, who he was, not his body. And, while I suspect, more and more, that his transexuality was B.S., that it was all in his head – I still loved him.

    We all have problems we don’t want to face, no one is perfect. Even if it was B.S., if he was just crazy, I choose to open my heart, and risk getting hurt [which I did], because the rest of him was so good. So what if he had one problem?

    Few people get better when you harass them. They need help, patience, and understanding. I wanted to love him, and be there for him. Be that through understanding his transexuality, and confirming it’s truth – or through disproving it, and helping him through the process of rebuilding his mind.

    In either case, he didn’t choose the condition. Not consciously anyway. Why would he? Oh, I’d like to be harassed by everyone that passes me, I’ll dress up like a boy now.
