Colossians 2:8 says, “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.”

People around the world believe in all sorts of things, different religions, philosophies and ideas. Many deny the existence of God or think of Him in a different way than is shown in The Bible. Many will say their god is the same for all faiths but that is far from the truth. There is but one God and He is the one described in Scripture. People say there are many paths to God but God says differently and this is shown in Scripture. I know people who dabble in astrology and read their ‘stars’ on a regular basis yet still claim to be believers in God. God specifically tells us that He hates spiritists and mediums and all those who dabble in the magic arts and He says that for a reason, they are all of the devil. You cannot have your feet in two different camps. I know people who follow eastern religions or philosophies which have their roots in eastern religions and yet they claim to love God. God specifically warns us not to follow such religions but it seems the Word of God means nothing to them. They are prepared to follow the traditions of men rather than the Word of God. In fact there are numerous man-made religions around these days which have nothing to do with God at all. Where do they get their ideas from? In essence people are searching for the truth and are easily drawn into false teaching and ideas. For a time I was side-tracked when I began my search for God but by His Spirit I was guided to the truth. This is the work of the Holy Spirit. Many follow religions and philosophies because they speak of love, peace, harmony, unity of spirit and the fact that we are all part of the universe but the message they receive is deceitful and empty. The message promises nothing. For some apparent reason, which is completely irrational, some people are under the misconception that they will be born again repeatedly until they reach perfection. This is the belief system of Buddhists, Theosophists and others. The belief is a man-made tradition and has nothing to do with the truth. God says it is appointed for man to die once and then there is judgement but for those who believe in Christ Jesus there is the promise of a resurrection to eternal life. Why settle for a lie invented by man? Don’t search for the truth in these false religions for that is exactly what the devil would have you do. Seek God with all your heart and He shall be found. Read His Word and know the truth. Read The Bible and put away wrong thinking.
