False teaching prompted Paul to write to the Colossians, and unfortunately it is still alive and well today. False teaching distorts, subtracts from, or adds to the gospel. It takes something good and warps it just enough to make it evil. Sometimes it comes in the form of legalism, requiring not just faith in Christ but obedience to specific standards in order to be right with God. Sometimes it comes through mysticism, that there are other means to communicate and hear from God outside of what he has provided in Scripture. And sometimes it looks like asceticism, teaching that we can get to God through our own efforts. But these forms of false teaching are dangerous, because they take away from the sufficiency and supremacy of Christ. Trust in him alone!
