Paul's Letter To The Galatians
Many Christians receive salvation by putting their total faith in Jesus. After being born-again, they fall back into the same old habits of thinking God accepts them based upon their performance. Paul described this in his letter to the Galatians by saying, "O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you . . . are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?"
In other letters, Paul expounded these truths in a gentle, uplifting way. But in this letter to the Galatians, Paul is brutal. He begins with a curse against anyone, even an angel, that would change the Gospel he had preached. He pulls no punches and leaves no room for compromise when it comes to the good news of salvation by faith in God's grace alone.
The modern church has moved away from total faith in Jesus Christ to preaching a performance-based message that leaves the hearers frustrated and condemned (Gal. 5:2-4).
The hard-hitting style of Galatians is just the thing for removing the blindness that has kept us from experiencing the fullness of God in our lives. You will understand the grace and love of God as never before through this study of Paul's letter to the Galatians.
