Colossians 2:8–10

"Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority."
There are a lot of philosophies and beliefs these days, vying for our adoption of them. But all our wisdom is to come from Christ and our union with and knowledge of him. Let nothing sway you from a radical trust and dependence on Christ alone for all things. Anything less is idolatry, and God has no patience with that. Jesus alone is to rule in your life—so that you may be fully connected to him who is Truth.
