Colossians 2:8
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

This warning isn’t about philosophy as a whole, it applies only to vain philosophy based on secular thinking. Philosophy enables clear thinking, and if it is based on the world view in the Bible, and not the vain teachings of men it is hard to go wrong. Religious leaders can sometimes lead us astray, so it must be the Bible you fall back on.
