Self Imposed Piety: Colossians 2:23
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 20, 2017
Every culture has its own version of wisdom that is expressed in aphorisms. The error of the false teachers in Colossae was man-made wisdom that produces their own version of piety. Self-chosen piety was grounded in severe restrictions...

Do Not Submit to the Traditions of Men: Colossians 2:21-22
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 13, 2017
The dogma that was wrongly placed on the Colossians came from human traditions and evil spirits. These were strict laws that God never gave. They create a false sense of piety while leading people away from Christ.

Died With Christ to the Hostile Powers: Colossians 2:20
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, March 6, 2017
We continue to study Paul's warnings about false teachers who wanted to make plunder of the Colossian Christians. This passage assumes that we have died with Christ and are therefore out of the control of the hostile, spiritual powers.

Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma

Let No One Disqualify You: Colossians 2:18
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, February 20, 2017

True Sabbath Rest in Christ: Colossians 2:17
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, February 13, 2017
We see that even under the old covenant, God rebuked religious formalism We have no required holy days under the new covenant. There are important implications to the fact that Paul warned us to not allow ourselves to be judged by Sabbath laws.

Do Not Be Falsely Judged: Colossians 2:16
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, February 6, 2017
Paul issues a command to the church to not allow anyone to judge us in regard to religious matters to which Christ has not bound us. The man-made laws came from the hostile, spiritual powers. Law-givers portray themselves as pious...

Victory In Christ: Colossians 2:15b
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, January 30, 2017

Hostile Beings Stripped of Power: Colossians 2:15a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, January 23, 2017
Satan attacks us by using the fact of our own sin to accuse us. But if we are in Christ, his attacks are powerless. The hostile powers were disarmed by the cross. Many Christians falsely believe that they can learn to manipulate the spirit world...

God Wipes Out Legal Debt: Colossians 2:14
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, January 16, 2017
Paul uses legal terms to describe the blotting out of a legal record. We were condemned by our own sin that transgressed God's law. All of this is about what God does for us, not what we think we will do for God...

The Danger of Deserting the Gospel: Galatians 1:6
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
