Enemy

The natural man is an ememy to Christ: 1) An enemy to Christ's Prophetic Office- (Despise His Word) 2) An enemy to Christ's Priestly Office- (Despise His Sacrifice) 3) An enemy to Christ's Kingly Office- (Despise His Rule).

SIMPLE PURITY

"So let us hold to this rule, that all human inventions which are set up to corrupt the simple purity of the word of God, and to undo the worship which he demands and approves, are true sacrileges, in which the Christian man cannot participate without blaspheming God, and trampling his honour underfoot."

- John Calvin

Idolatry

“Will worship” (Col. 2:23) is ascribing to the will of man the work of God. Like all other forms of idolatry, it is damning to all who practice it. All who make the will of man a determining factor in salvation worship their own wills, worship and serve the creature more than the Creator, and set man in the place of God; and of all forms of idolatry spawned in hell, will-worship is the most abominable and the most absurd!
