Following on our series from Colossians in Chapter 2:8-23 we see Paul’s real concern for the church not to be misled by false teachers and distracted from following Jesus, having been set free by Christ, some in the church were trying to add rules and regulations, that seek to make captives of believers through hollow and deceptive philosophy.

Reading: Colossians 2:8-23

Questions to think about:

  • Discuss ways we can ensure no one takes us captive with false teaching.
  • What traditions do you find helpful or unhelpful?
  • Christ sets us free from human rules, discuss the ‘rules’ that you feel are imposed on you by others and how you deal with these.
