Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
Paul agonized for this little church because of the man centered false gospel that was being taught there. Like a salesman selling a lead vest as a life preserver, a false gospel has the trappings of what we want, but the inability to actually save. The Gospel of Jesus is our only hope.
