Galatians is a dangerous book…(I might lose some friends and some invitations to preach!). So be it…”-Warren W. Wiersbe

If the words of Jesus TO His disciples and FOR us today in Matthew 13 and Matthew 7:21-23; and the promise vs. the curse of the law in the book of Galatians–with the begining of the promise vs. curse from Genesis 12:3 stating that those who bless Abram shall be blessed and he who curses Abram shall be cursed; with Hagar the mother of those under the curse of the law vs. Jerusalem above the mother of those under the promise, DO NOT GET OUR ATTENTION OVER EVERYTHING ELSE, THEN WE ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE, as clearly shown by the Scriptures, especially by the book of Galatians. Richard Duke

Reader Beware

Galatians is a dangerous book.

It exposes the most popular substitute for spiritual living that we have in our churches todaylegalism. I didn’t say “among false cults.” I said “in our churches” because that is where much legalism is today.

Millions of believers think they arespiritualbecause of what they don’t do—or because of the leader they follow—or because of the group they belong to. The Lord shows us in Galatians how wrong we are—and how right we can be if only we would let the Holy Spirit take over.

A Battle for Truth

As you begin to read Paul’s letter to the Galatian Christians, you can tell immediately that something is radically wrong, because he does not open his letter with his usual elaborate praise to God and prayer for the saints. He has no time! Paul is about to engage in a battle for the truth of the gospel and the liberty of the Christian life. False teachers are spreading a false “gospel,” which is a mixture of law and grace, and Paul is not going to stand by and do nothing.

Risk and Reward

So, I say Galatians is a dangerous book. It was dangerous for Paul to write it. It was dangerous for the Galatians to read it. Perhaps my writing this will prove to have been a dangerous thing. (I might lose some friends and some invitations to preach!)

So be it. All I pray is that you and I will appreciate and experience the liberty we have in Christ, lest He have died in vain.

My friend—Be Free!”

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” Matthew 5:17. Now read verse 18.

 

The law was fulfilled around 70 AD [destruction of Jerusalem and the temple]–Matthew 5; Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; and other verses
