Today I would like to look at Colossians 2 verse 8

8)See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth--the teachings of] Christ

My Afrikaans Bible translate the take captive, with take away from God. We must not let people mislead us with philosophies that are not founded on the Bible and what Jesus teaches us. We must dismiss all teachings that pretend that people and not Jesus has the answers to our salvation. This can take us away from Jesus.

I hope you have a wonderful day. May God Bless you.

@rynow,
Another great verse well shared and explained! God bless you and your family!

Amen~

We must be careful with the teachings, remembering that those who pretend to deceive us will pretend to be our brothers and sisters and their instrument may even be the Bible!

·

·

Amen.

Amen, Christ is our solid rock and our foundation truth. Outside of that is just sinking sand. It is nice that you share insights from the African bible, I've learnt a lot today.

·

Amen, thank you so much for the very nice comment. I find that it helps to look at different translations as I believe it is difficult to translate some of the very old languages into modern languages. By looking at more than translation, you might get a better understanding.

Yes, thanks for the great advise! Yes I agree because at times I came across some of the greek and hebrew words from the bible and often bible teacher used many words just to elaborate the definition of that single original word from the bible.

Hi Shaila
I see in your own block you say you are not important to anyone and that you are useless. You are saying that you might not live long and you are thinking about suicide. For me it is difficult to give advice as I don't know your circumstances. Perhaps you can tell me more.
You must know that all people are unique and God made us all and He also made you. God has a purpose for you on earth and everybody is important to Him. He gave His only Son to die for our sins, thus He loves us all. I will pray for you.

I'm trying to learn more about our purposes in this earth. Getting bored to do the same thing in our daily life. May be we are bounded for same activities but not free to do our own way.
I suppose to design my life with my own way. Society barriers, people's choice and egoism can't help us to reach the ultimate goal easily.
From yesterday, I read Bible to Learn more. Thanks

Hello friend, I think that if our beliefs are well rooted to our being, there is no danger that fill us with doubts, although if there is fragility in people that perhaps wanting to believe in false expectations of a fantasy world, only the one who has the truth true is Jesus, we just have to analyze their messages and as a magic craft our life will be saved through time, greetings @rynow

Amen, thank you so much for the nice comment.
