Bible: Col 2:5-11
Warnings Against the Adoption of False Philosophies
2:6 Therefore, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, 4 continue to live your lives 5 in him, 2:7 rooted 6 and built up in him and firm 7 in your 8 faith just as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. 2:8 Be careful not to allow anyone to captivate you 9 through an empty, deceitful philosophy 10 that is according to human traditions and the elemental spirits 11 of the world, and not according to Christ. 2:9 For in him all the fullness of deity lives 12 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, 13 with a circumcision performed by human hands, but by the removal 14 of the fleshly body, 15 that is, 16 through the circumcision done by Christ.
