Colossians: "Jesus and..." - Why religion cannot save.

Colossians 2:16-17  Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ.

Every society ever discovered has some form of religious practice. The action of doing certain things, or not doing certain things in an effort to please a god or gods. If your faith is in what you do, rather than repenting in light of what Jesus did, your faith is in religion, and it will not save. In this text we look at how Paul calls the Colossian believers to fix their hope on Christ and not on any religious practice as their source of salvation security.
Delivered to the Galena Bible Church, Sunday June 28th, 2015.
