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.
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
