Bible: Col. 2:8-12
2:8 Be careful not to allow anyone to captivate you 1 through an empty, deceitful philosophy 2 that is according to human traditions and the elemental spirits 3 of the world, and not according to Christ. 2:9 For in him all the fullness of deity lives 4 in bodily form, 2:10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head over every ruler and authority. 2:11 In him you also were circumcised – not, however, 5 with a circumcision performed by human hands, but by the removal 6 of the fleshly body, 7 that is, 8 through the circumcision done by Christ. 2:12 Having been buried with him in baptism, you also have been raised with him through your 9 faith in the power 10 of God who raised him from the dead.
