Why Jesus [Part 3]—Josh Rhodes

Problem: We’re tempted to add things to Jesus.
Solution: Jesus + Nothing = Everything
Four false teachings that are still active in today''s culture:
Jesus + External Rules
Jesus + Human Philosophies
Jesus + Mystical Experiences
Jesus + Self Denial
Today's Takeaway: Jesus + Nothing = Everything
“Philosophy is the love of wisdom, but if one loves wisdom that is not Christ (the sum of all wisdom), he loves an empty idol.” –The Bible Knowledge Commentary, p. 677
“Paul envisions a particular person who apparently is acting as a spiritual umpire, watching to see whether the community observes certain holy days and complies with certain dietary regulations and using these things to determine the quality of their devotion to God.” –IVP New Testament Commentary, Colossians & Philemon
