Paul’s letter to the Colossians is extremely relevant for today. The church is still assaulted with heresies of all kinds: heresies that call into question the authority of Jesus Christ, the sufficiency of the once-for-all sacrifice of Christ, and the ever present desire to ‘Improve’ the gospel to make it attractive to the unbelieving world.
Many Christians are looking for some sort of formula that will give them a spiritual fullness which they have not known before. It was a Colossian disease as well and all they needed was Paul’s letter.
What a book!
