COLOSSIANSFacilitators: Kingsley Sackey & Rev. Rose NgondeMeeting Day & Time: Every Sunday @ 8:00 amColossians is one of the Epistles Paul wrote during his imprisonment in Rome around A.D. 60 – 62. Other Epistles he wrote during his imprisonment are Ephesians, Philippians, and Philemon. To understand the letter, it is important to relate it to its historical setting. Paul wrote the letter to deal with a doctrinal heresy that was creeping into the Colossian Church. While the doctrinal heresy is not stated explicitly in the letter, it can be deduced through inferences from Paul’s responses.During our study of this Epistle, we will discover what the doctrinal heresy was at the Colossian church. Paul refutes these false doctrines by pointing to Christ. Of course, all along Jesus had been the focus of Paul’s preaching. However, in Colossians, Paul reiterates this central theme: the Supremacy of Christ. He asserts that it was because Jesus is divine that His death reconciles Believers to their Creator (Ref. Col. 1: 15 – 17). He asserts in Colossians that Believers are complete in Christ.Join us in our study as we discover the doctrinal heresy that invaded the Colossian Church, how Paul refuted them, what he teaches in asserting the supremacy of Christ, and what it means for Believers to be complete in Christ. During our study, we will also examine the similarities and differences between Colossians and Ephesians.Decisions Awaiting You in Colossians: How Does Colossians Apply to You Today?· Do you want to grow in Christian knowledge?· Will you continue in faith in Christ or prefer another way?· Are you going to listen to GOD speak in The Bible and obey?· Are you able to ignore human criticism and judgment of you?· Will you hide your life in Christ, killing old life habits to take on Christlike virtues?
