Philosophy and Empty Deception

  • Philosophy can be an excellent entry point to inject the truth of God’s Word and the Gospel to an earnest seeker.

  • Paul’s qualifier: “rather than on Christ.”

    • Philosophy may contemplate the nature and truth of Jesus Christ, but shall not add to what is not there to begin with.

    • Environmentalism

    • May be important to some Christians, not so important to others.

    • Should not be a distraction or disqualifier to be in the fellowship of believers.

Fullness of Deity

  • Colossians 2:9-10

    • Jesus, in bodily form, was the fullness of deity.

    • He has in turn granted fullness to us.

    • There is no power or authority that He is not over.
