Colossians 2:8-23 – IF IT ISN’T BROKEN, DON’T FIX IT!

The title of this message is an American saying. Usually, however we don’t say it using correct English. We usually say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”  The Phrase simply means don’t try to change something that doesn’t need changing. As verse 8 shows us in our text, there were false teachers who were trying to “fix” Christianity. Paul warns the Colossians about these people.
