This week we will wrap up our final episode in the "bad words" of the Bible study with the little-known word, iniquity. In Colossians, we'll also look at a letter Paul wrote to Christians he'd never met in a church he didn't start. And the spiritual beings series will go back to the beginning as we get a clearer biblical understanding of the Satan and demons in the Scriptures.

Paul encourages the Colossian Christians to continue in their faithful devotion to Jesus. Despite facing pressure from their culture to turn away from Jesus, the Colossian Christians have stayed faithful the way of Jesus. Paul prays that they would grow even more in their wisdom, allowing every part of their lives to be transformed by the Gospel message.

So let’s go back to the book of Genesis and start over as we learn about the powers of spiritual evil in the story of the Bible.
