We live in a world not unlike the world into which the Apostle Paul spoke in his letter to the Colossian church.  There were some false doctrines and practices being taught which were threatening the health of the Colossian believers.   Legalism,  asceticism, and distorted mysticism were threatening abundant life.  The prevailing relativism and pluralism that early readers encountered connect them to the contemporary culture in which we live.

Paul met the challenges head on by focusing on Jesus. Reading through this great epistle makes clear the eternal truths concerning the person and work of Jesus Christ.   Followers of Jesus have everything they need in Him.  This is how Paul countered false teaching, by pointing to the absolute supremacy and sufficiency of Jesus Christ.
