"Since you died with Christ to the basic principles of this world, why, as though you still belonged to it, do you submit to its rules: Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!"? These are all destined to perish with use, because they are based on 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...

I think the verse says it all! God did not redeem us from this world so we could enslave ourselves to religion! He freed us to live an abundant and beautiful life in Him!

Have a wonderful Friday!
