Bible: Colossians 2:20-23

2:20 If you have died with Christ to the elemental spirits 1  of the world, why do you submit to them as though you lived in the world? 2:21 Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch! 2:22 These are all destined to perish with use, founded as they are 2  on human commands and teachings. 3  2:23 Even though they have the appearance of wisdom 4  with their self-imposed worship and false humility 5  achieved by an 6  unsparing treatment of the body – a wisdom with no true value – they in reality result in fleshly indulgence. 7
