THE BOOK OF COLOSSIANS
We only have letters, so to understand them, we have to consider the context of the time and not read our own understanding into the scriptures or the beliefs of our denomination. If we do that, in some cases, we will be believing fiction instead of God's words and biblical truths. 2 Peter 1:20-21 NKJV says, "No prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit." They are God's words written for the understanding of the people back when they were written. Since they are God's words, we do not have the right to misinterpret them out of their proper context.
Sometimes the scriptures refer to the law (nomia) as the law with the extra man-made laws that God says we are not to make up. We are not to make up man-made misapplied laws. Sometimes law (nomia) refers to the Torah and the Old Testament law which believers are to keep. It was the Roman/Greek Empire that created a religion without its original biblical laws. They changed God's law; they are heretics. Hosea 4:6 NKJV says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being a priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children." Do you want your children to be in the future kingdom of God? Yeshua said, "Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness;" Matthew 7:23 NKJV.
Have you "forgotten the law of your God?"
