Colossians 2:16-18

16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
18 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,

These two scriptures are super interesting. Verse 16 is interesting because it tells the members of the church to not be offended when others will judge them in regards to things they do different. Meat, drink holidays, new moons and the sabbath seem to be some of these things they do differently. The interesting comment here is that the sabbath was different. That infers that they did not keep the sabbath on the seventh day, but on another, and we assume it is the first day of the week (Mark 16: 2, 9; Acts 20: 7).
Verse 18 is interesting also because it seems to be a prophecy about the decay of the doctrines of Christ. Apparently some will come and beguile the members of the church to believe that worshipping angels is fine. Worshipping angels, saints and other things is idolatry. The members of the Godhead (God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost) should be the only ones worshiped.
Comment if you agree or not.
