An Introduction to Systematic Theology


Theology: Order, Structure, Maturity, Christ!

Pastor Jesse Gistand
 GBC Weekly Men’s Meetings
Saturday – 02/14/2009
33 min | Colossians 2:17-23

Colossians 2:17-23 “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, 19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. 20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not; 22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? 23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.”

Comment: This is the third available study in a series on systematic theology — unfortunately, like the others, these early recordings are incomplete. Nonetheless, the remaining truths and lessons are well worth hearing. Brother Jesse covered a range of matters including the importance of order, discipline (tied into being a disciple), biblical manhood, the maturing process, the Christian walk, and the importance of keeping Christ and His Gospel preeminent above all.
