This is the chapter where Paul gets serious about warning the new believers in Colossae about false teachers.
There are false teachers and teachings assaulting their church, in an attempt to confound the Colossians’ faith, and lead them away from Jesus. Paul warns the Colossians that the false teachings are wrapped in plausible, seemingly reasonable arguments. But they are not what they seem. The false teachings of these seductive false teachers, they are human and ultimately demonic in their origin, and despite what they claim, they will not lead you closer to God, or the life he wants for you.
