If you died with Christ to the elemental forces of this world, why do you live as if you still belonged to the world? Why do you submit to regulations:
"Don't handle, don't taste, don't touch"?
All these [regulations] refer to what is destroyed by being used up; they are human commands and doctrines.
Although these have a reputation of wisdom by promoting ascetic practices, humility, and severe treatment of the body, they are not of any value against fleshly indulgence.
