The Second threat that Paul warned the Colossian Christians about are teachings that emphasize the authority of spiritual experiences. Paul tells them to be careful with people who delight in false humility and the worship of angels. It seems that these false teachers were going into great detail about their experiences with angels or spirits. These teachers were claiming their authority from these visions or experiences with angels. They were following angels and not the Head, Christ.

In Col. 2:16-23, Paul mentions three threats that we must be aware of if we are going to keep our freedom in Christ. They are, namely, the teachings that emphasize submission to Old Testament Law; the teachings that emphasize the authority of spiritual experiences; and the teachings that emphasize legalism.

After speaking about the fullness of deity in Christ and our fullness in him, Paul begins to teach further about what makes Christ sufficient and therefore should keep us from falling into some type of slavery. According to Paul, in his letter to the Colossians, the fourth way by which we can remain free is by understanding our deliverance from sin in Christ.

Followers of Christ have been set free from slavery to sin, the world, and the devil. However, it is entirely possible for them to again come under a yoke of slavery. The primary slavery Paul is referring to in this text is false doctrine (Col. 2:8).

Scripture clearly teaches that he who the Son has set free is free indeed (John 8:36). However, Scripture also teaches that it is entirely possible for a Christian to again come under a yoke of slavery (Romans 6:16).

Romans 6:3-14 answer the question, how do those of us who are under grace live without being characterized by sin? Paul answers logically. First, by understanding the nature of our identification with Christ (Romans 6:2-10). For Paul, what a believer understands is terribly important. The key word in Romans 6:3-10 is “know,” which occurs three times (Romans 6:3, 6, 9). Above all, Paul wants us to know or understand the nature of our union with Christ. To help us, he employs the powerful metaphor of baptism. For Paul, a believer’s baptism symbolizes wondrous realities.

Man is enslaved by sin and all the consequences of it. He cannot keep from sinning; therefore, he bears the consequences of sin: guilt, shame, hurt, pain, sorrow, suffering, destruction, devastation, brokenness, death, and judgment. For man to be freed, he must fulfill two conditions. The first condition is belief or faith in Christ (John 8:30; cp. John 1:12-14; Rom. 10:9-11). As the gospel was proclaimed, they listened. They did not slumber or sleep, nor allow their minds to wander. They allowed no distraction whatsoever. They heard and "believed on Christ"; therefore, their hearts were stirred and they reached out for Jesus (cp. John 3:3; 1 Peter 2:2-3). The second condition is continuing or abiding in the Lord's Word. The idea is that of dwelling, just as a person dwells at home. Very simply, what Jesus was saying is that a person who really believes will continue both to study and to do the Word (2 Tim. 2:15).
