Read Introduction to Colossians


“Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.”


“in all wisdom”

It takes “wisdom” to correct false teaching. Some people emotionally attach themselves to false doctrine. This is a subjective problem where each person views truth from their individual grid or assumption. Paul did not propel the Colossians into the opposite camp by unnecessarily violating their viewpoints. However, on the other hand, neither did it mean that he sacrificed truth for their subjective feelings. Spiritual surgery requires the delicate precision of separating emotions from the truth.

“Wisdom” is the ability to apply what we know to our personal experience. It is the application of knowledge or principles of the Bible. It is one thing to preach, warn, and teach; it is another thing to do it with “wisdom.”


Wisdom is the ability to apply divine truth to a specific situation.


How do you handle delicate doctrinal situations? Do you attack it with a sledgehammer? God does not want us to unnecessarily polarize Christians who fall into error but wants us to help them out of it by using wisdom.
