And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, HATH HE QUICKENED TOGETHER WITH HIM, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, NAILING IT TO HIS CROSS; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, TRIUMPHING OVER THEM in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: WHICH ARE A SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME; but the body is of Christ. LET NO MAN BEGUILE YOU of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, INTRUDING INTO THOSE THINGS WHICH HE HATH NOT SEEN, vainly puffed up BY HIS FLESHLY MIND, Colossians 2:13-18. This world, with all of its great worldliness, with the use of men with unregenerate minds and fanciful imaginations, offer to man its versions of love and support through the use of pleasures provided by sex, drugs and alcohol, along with sports and entertainment, ALL FOR THE PURPOSE OF KEEPING MAN CONTENT WITH HIS MEDIOCRE SAD LITTLE WAY OF LIFE, (now red letter, highlighted, and underscored words) TO KEEP SINFUL MAN FROM SEEKING CHRIST AND HIS ETERNAL SALVATION. Even many so-called "christians" are getting into the act of spewing their fanciful made up lies of Heaven and Hell, places they know nothing about, just to sell books, tapes, and movies. ALL THESE THINGS that the world offers ARE BUT SHADOWS OF THINGS TO COME AND THINGS CHRIST HAS FOR HIS PEOPLE NOW. The world's cheap version of love, is but a shadow of the Real Love Christ offers. CHRIST IS EVERYTHING a Believer needs to be 100% Satisfied and Content both in this Life, and the One to come. Sinners, there is Something much greater than what this world can offer. Believers, don't fall for the wood, hay, and stubble this world tries to offer. Keep the world out of your Worship. With Christ alone, you will, Be Blessed.
