Introduction and Greeting

Colossians 1:1–2  (ID: 1019)

People often treat the Bible as tourists might regard an old ceremonial sword in an ancient castle: an interesting relic, perhaps, but ultimately irrelevant for our lives today. We may even disregard whether a belief is true and only ask if it simply works. Based on the apostle Paul’s warnings to the Colossian church, however, Alistair Begg contends that real Christianity requires both revealed truth and application within our everyday lives.
