Everything of God Gets Expressed in Christ

8-10 Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.

– Colossians 2:8-10

The Message Version (MSG)


8-10 你們要提防那些想用高深的學問或智慧名言來迷惑你们的人,他們想把你們捲入無休止卻又毫無意義的辯論中。他們藉著一些關於人類傳統的空談,以及對靈界的迷信,來撒播自己的想法,但這些完全不是基督的道。有關神的一切都已在基督身上顯明,使你們可以看得清楚,聽得明白。你們不用透過望遠鏡、顯微鏡、占星術等,才能體會基督的真實,或者意識到宇宙若沒有基督就只是一片混沌。當你進到基督裏面,祂的豐盛也會臨到你們,祂的能力遍及萬有。

— 歌羅西書二8-10
