Increasingly quite a lot of new ideas are being taught “in the name of Jesus”. How do we know which ones are biblical and which are not? If pressed could you discern the actual gospel of Jesus Christ from a counterfeit? Especially if the skewed message came from within mainstream evangelicalism?
The Colossian church had the same problem. A heresy was infecting their congregation. Paul wrote them a letter to teach them how to tell the real gospel from a false gospel so that they might “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Col 1:10). Join us as we learn from Paul’s letter to the Colossians how to get the gospel right.
