“What is the pathway to spiritual fullness?” The question was asked by the church in Colossae but the people were being harmed by answers that were lies. Paul warns the people of Colossians to beware of false teachers and not to go near them if they valued their spiritual freedom. We are reminded here by Paul that spiritual fullness is found only in 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.
