Colossians 2:8, 20 – See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ…you died to the basic principles of this world, why as though you still belonged to it, do you submit to its rules: Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch! (NIV 1978)
My Musings – Eve found out that even just a taste caused her, and all generations thereafter, to be slaves of sin. We’ve been set free by the blood of Christ, yet we continue to taste the world’s “pleasures.” Paul asks why, because we no longer have to submit to Satan’s deception.
My Advice – Sift carefully through the things that people try to get you to buy in to. They might sound good on the surface, but if they are inconsistent with the Word do not handle, taste or touch.
