Warnings against human Jewish observances (chapter 2)

Paul said that they should not be condemned because of what they ate or drank.  They were not tied to Jewish observances and festivals.  All those activities are only a shadow of the substance that is Christ.  They were not to be discouraged.  They did not have to worry about self-abasement, angel worship, visions, or human thinking.  Instead, they should cling to Christ, the head and the body.  The whole Christian body is nourished and held together by its ligaments, as it grows with a growth that comes from God.
