Colossians 2:6-8 6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and over owing with thankfulness. 8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.8ŒæSee to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forcesŒæof this world rather than on Christ. Mark 7:1-8 1 The Pharisees and some of the teachers of the law who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus 2 and saw some of his disciples eating food with hands that were de led, that is, un- washed. 3 (The Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they give their hands a ceremonial washing, holding to the tradition of the elders. 4 When they come from the marketplace they do not eat unless they wash. And they observe many other traditions, such as the washing of cups, pitchers and kettles.) 5 So the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus, äóìWhy donäó»t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with de led hands?äó 6 He replied, äóìIsaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: äóì äóÖThese people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. 7 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.äó» 8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.äó Download Message Powerpoint
