A Good Quote

Here are some good comments on Colossians 2 from George Williams (1850-1928) in his work, The Students Commentary on the Holy Scriptures:

"To suppose the baptism of verse 12 to be the immersion of the flesh of man in water, is to oppose the argument of the entire passage, and to degrade its meaning from spiritual realities to carnal shadows."

"If the Divine fact be believed that the believer is complete in the Head (v.10) and is perfectly nourished by the Head (v.19), then the abolition of and uselessness of ordinances will be recognized, for how could completion and perfection require anything to add what is already perfect and complete?"
