“What is the pathway to spiritual fullness?” The church in Colossae was asking that question—but the people were being harmed by the false answers they were being given. Paul therefore warned the Colossians to beware of and avoid false teachers if they valued their spiritual freedom. As Alistair Begg reminds us, spiritual fullness is found only in the Christ who is fully God.
8See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits1 of the world, and not according to Christ. 9For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.
