Big idea from Paul to the Colossians
· Christ has defeated Satan and is sufficient for the Colossian Christians, making them complete and they must not be lured into the false teaching or shamed by the judgments or delusions of men into thinking that they needed to add things to Christ. Christ plus works, philosophy, mysticism or asceticism would rob them of the freedom Christ has given by His grace
20 If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations— 21 “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” 22 (referring to things that all perish as they are used)—according to human precepts and teachings? 23 These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and asceticism and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh.

· The unhealthy culture of today and the judgment or delusion that comes with it will try to manipulate you in to adding something to Christ. Christ is all you need and we need to understand this and not be convinced by the modern false teacher. We must understand the things that culture tries to add to Christ and be ready to combat them and seek the truth of Christ’s sufficiency through His word and fellowship in the church. We are free from sin and death.

2:16 Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. 17 These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ. 18 Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, 19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God.
