Colossians 2: 8-10 (NIV)
8See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
9For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 10and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.
New American Standard Version:
8See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.
9For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form,
10and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority;
English Standard Version:
8See 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. 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.

Those are powerful verses, indeed! Thanks for posting them.
Have a blessed evening.
The Message…I get a chuckle out of the Message, but every now and then it hits the nail on the head like right now. (Oh dear! I hope I haven’t offended any Message lovers).
Ellen B., I love your scripture choices here and I think they’re excellent for this time of year.
Oh, I hope I didn’t depress you with my pictures of the islands…it was so beautiful and to think that each new day holds so many new blessings…Life is wonderful, is it not?
