A Study in Colossians
Paul says our speech is to be seasoned with salt.
Paul says that the Word of Messiah (His Torah) is to dwell richly in us. We are to have wisdom, teaching, and admonish (warn) one another (Deut. 6:6-9, Prov. 3:5-8).
He then tells us that whatever we do in word or deed, to do in the name of Yeshua Messiah.
The Colossians were a Gentile group new to Torah and trying to live according to the Word of Elohim.
We are reconciled to the Father through the blood of Yeshua Messiah, which is the vehicle of the Spirit (Breath) of Elohim to enter into us and make us a part of His New Covenant.
Paul describes Torah as “holy,” “righteous,” “good,” and “spiritual” in Romans chapter 7. He is hardly schizophrenic. Although Christian doctrine paints him to be as such, or at least confused. You will find our investigation of that passage at least interesting, if not eye-opening.
