    10 Popular Things Jesus Said

    10 Popular Things Jesus Said

    This is Part 1 of 2. Part 1 is 10 popular things Jesus said. Part 2 (to come) will be 10 un-popular things he said. His words are full of inspiration and hope! -- and also challenge and warning.

    Syncretism is blending beliefs and practices into your faith (which don't belong there). It's not that bad, is it? Yes, it is. The Colossians were blending other systems of thought, and also opening themselves to the demonic realm. This episode is a Bible study on Colossians 2:6-23.
