Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: "Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!"? These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.
Do not believe all that only appears to be truth but is false. You must be able to discern who is behind these rules, the elemental spiritual forces of this world which are evil, or all that Christ had commanded. The former gives a false sight. Do not believe everything you see with your eyes. The false sight these demons provide may appear like they are of God or His Christ but they are not. "Do not touch this", "taste this" or "handle this" they say but that's just to provide a false sense of humilty to trick those who are foolish and blind like them. It's just a show of wisdom but it's foolishness in every sense of that word. Foolishness because when you watch them closely, they are greedy, covetous, lustful, violent, cruel, abusive, cheaters, liars, deceivers, people who lack self-control, tricksters, and people who love money above God. All these they do to cover up their sensual indulgence in wealth, pleasures, their wants,desires and urges of the sinful nature of the Devil in them. They will show off their harsh treatment of their bodies to trick others into believing in them but, they will continue with pleasing and obeying the sinful nature of the Devil in them. All that they display outwardly is only for a show of piety and respect so to say, but inwardly they still burn with lust. They do not practice self -control. They eat like uncontrollable gluttons and lust after the things that do not belong to them without any qualms. They do not feel guity of the sins they commit towards God and His Christ anymore. Their lives are a show case of a false sight. They have selfish and ulterior motives behind all their actions. Be ware! We live in such evil times.
Do not trust what you see of them. It's deception of the highest kind. There are other things that they are after. It might seem like they are 'good' and 'caring' but they are not. You will know about them soon. God knows what they are up to and He has set a day and time for them, calling it "pay-back" time. That day will surely come for them. How long can you cheat and trick others into believing in you and your cunningness? God knows all your ways.Everyone too, knows your ways. You just want everything for yourselves. You feel you are special when you are not. He is going to show to everyone that you are not.
