“Let no one defraud you by acting as an umpire and declaring you unworthy and disqualifying you for the prize, insisting on self-abasement and worship of angels, taking his stand on visions [he claims] he has seen, vainly puffed up by his sensuous notions and inflated by his unspiritual thoughts and fleshly conceit,” Colossians 2:18 ->me: What an amazing verse! I love the teaching here which is -> rest on who you are in the body of Christ. You are redeemed by the Redeemer and answer only to Him. Don’t be judged by the ultra-spiritual person who is not only enraptured by their own drummed up visions but has put too much focus on the speculation of or existence of angels, or celebrating the fact that the law was given by them that these people are in effect worshipping those angels instead of the Creator God who designed and formed them. These heavenly minded and super-spiritual people border on idolatry or being unspiritual by embracing ‘the mind of the flesh’. When Paul talks about these people being ‘vainly puffed by their sensuous notions’ he means that their self-inflation amounts to nothing being achieved in the spiritual fruit sense. Lord God, I have known people like this – please help me to discern wise admonishment from inappropriate judgement.
