It is generally thought that the Christians in Colossae were being pressed upon by external forces to follow fallacious teachings regarding the worship of angels, spirits, demons and other objects of God’s creation. Burton Coffman describes Colossians 1:16 as the verse that was “the divine thunderbolt that cleared the atmosphere and let the light of God shine in”.
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things were created through him and for him. (Colossians 1:16)
G.G. Findlay said, “By this the apostle declares that the invisible beings of the world above us, however lofty their names or mighty their powers, are Christ’s creatures as much as the lowliest objects within our sight”
David Lipscomb said, “This certainly means that Christ created the whole universe,” That being the case there is no room for anyone to worship any lesser being than the Creator Himself…Jesus is truly the Pre-Eminent Creator.
