Colossians 2:1-10, “Functional Saviors”
Passage: Colossians 2:1–2:10
Intro: In Colossians 2:1-10 we begin to see more clearly Paul's purpose in writing to the Colossian church. He warns them not to be deluded with the plausible and false arguments of those trying to lure them away from believing Christ is sufficient and supreme. The situation is no different for us today. Our culture is full of false and functional saviors that promise us a fulfillment that they can never deliver. This message seeks to unpack and analyze the functional and false saviors of our times and how we can discern and defend ourselves against them in Christ.
