"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ."

"For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. "

Colossians 2:9-12

"When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross."

Colossians 2:13-15

"Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind. They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow. "

Colossians 2:16-19

"In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron. Both of them were upright in the sight of God, observing all the Lord's commandments and regulations blamelessly. But they had no children, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well along in years." Luke 1:5-7

I need you guys to please pray for my wife, Sandy. Her mom and sister told her last night they did not want her around anymore during the holiday season. She comes from an alcoholic familiy system, and when she talks about what is going on instead of pretending everything is wonderful they get upset. So much so they are willing to not have us or our kids around. This is very hurtful for all of us, espcially she and the kids, as we have always enjoyed the holidays with family so much and don't really understand their position. Its not like Sandy tips over the punchbowl or throws the turkey outside with the dogs. All involved are Christians, which makes it even more puzzling, and hurtful. Your thoughts and prayers would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Zechariah went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense............

"Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. But the angel said to him; 'Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John. He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink and he will be filled with Holy Spirit even from birth..... Luke 1:11-15

"Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely 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 in restraining sensual indulgence."

Colossians 2:20-23

"Zechariah asked the angel, "How can I be sure of this: I am an old man and my wife is well along in years."

The angel answered , "I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news. And now you will be silent and not able to speak until the day this happens, because you did not believe my words, which will come true at their proper time."

"When his time of service was completed, he returned home. After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. "The Lord has done this for me," she said. "In these days He has shown His favor and taken away my disgrace among the people." Luke 1:18-20 , 23-25

"In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you." Luke 1:26-28

"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. "

Colossians 3:1-4

There is a command not to be yoked with unbelievers. The decision is to go along with hypocrisy to keep the peace, or live in honor and truth. She wants to maintain kinship but the spiritual cost is too high. While it is painful for her, she will set a better example for your children not to go along with hypocrites. The problem she faces is one many others face also.

If she wants to sit with the hypocrites she will have to apologize even though she is not wrong, which means she has to lie, and then she has to endure their boasting about themselves, their lives, their accomplishments and validate their lies.

It is very hard being ex-communicated, I know someone who just went thru this, and I myself went thru this in 2003 with some relatives. In my case, they attempted reconciliation and I did meet with them for one event where I maintained a civility, but on the core issue the person I had a problem with remains a hypocrite who is only concerned with appearances and this person has issues with their own direct family members some of whom refuse to even speak to each other.

You have to decide how far you will bend and compromise. If your wife's Mom and sister want to criticize her and try to belittle her and expose her faults while believing they have none, she is better not being there with them at all.

I have a friend who, after Thanksgiving and 2 other events that happened is just writing off all of her relatives, and given the situation I cannot say that I blame her. When people are going to destroy you emotionally or otherwise you have to put distance between yourself and them or you will not survive.

"Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever; His kingdom will never end." Luke 1:29-33

"Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all."

Colossians 3:5-11

"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity."

Colossians 3:12-14

"How will this be," Mary asked the angel,"since I am a virgin?"
The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you , and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the Holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God"
"I am the Lord's the servant," Mary answered. "May it be to me as you have said." Then the angel left her. Luke 1:34-38

Wanted to give anohter update on my wife's family. She and her sister talked for a long time yesterday. really got some things cleared up, and now everyone is back on track. In any long term relationship we are bound to have hurts, frustrations, and disagreements. It is so important to talk about these things and work them out. It brings us closer together rather than tearing us apart. Not always easy, but well worth it. We need to value each other and our relatikonships more.

“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift."

Matt. 5:23-24

At that time, Mary went to visit her cousin Elizabeth...
"When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed; Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leapt for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!" Luke 1:41-45

"Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

Colossians 3:16-17
