Galatians 1

Paul notes that some were now teaching a different gospel. Some in the churches of Galatia had begun to teach that for the Gentiles to be saved had had to obey the Law and be circumcised. They had taken this wonderful gospel of grace and perverted it. What always strikes me in this chapter is the strong language Paul uses to express how God does not intend for His message ever to change! The message preached to those in Derby is the message that is to be preached in Marstons Mills. There are some that believe the message should change to fit the culture, when the opposite is true, the culture should change to fit the message! The gospel was given once for all time! “Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to Godʼs holy people.” Jude‬ ‭1:3‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Artie, I think the reality of your comments on the unchanging truth of scripture is reflected in two ways in this reading — first Paul gets right to the point of this letter after only a sentence of greeting. Secondly, he establishes his authority and reveals that it did not come from the other apostles or me but from direct revelation from Jesus Christ.

    Sadly, when so many call themselves ” Christian ” in our society and know so little of God’s Word, it makes for a very confusing message to the world. It is true especially when intolerance is the key word of the day. Can we ever make our way back? Were we ever there or was that a myth?
