Colossians 2:18 (KJV) Beware the Beguiler

Colossians 2:18 (KJV)
Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
There is a manner in which those who pretend to be people of faith intrude themselves into things of which they know nothing: Pharaoh’s magicians who, seeing Moses perform miracles, gave an imitation performance only to see their snakes devoured by Moses’ or the seven sons of Sceva who, seeing Paul cast out demons, attempted the same and were beaten by those very demons.
Such is the case of those who, seeing a demonstration of true faith, practice a form of the same in every imaginable way:
  • Some attempt a Christian-like practice
  • Some attempt a completely different practice of faith
  • Some try their hand at the faith of no faith
In the end, every intrusion into those things of which they have no knowledge, finishes the same way. It ends in destruction and doom.
These people are often clever and sacrificial. They frequently bring some degree of confusion to those who are new to honest Christian faith because they seem:
  • so confident, 
  • so willing and 
  • so similar to believers in many ways
The Bible warns us to beware of them. Trust God’s Word and that alone.
