Ga 1:13 Ye have heard of my conversation in time past. "Of my manner of life" (Revised Version). While he was still a Jew. In order to show that his gospel did not come from man, he cites his history, of which they knew something. I persecuted the church of God. See Ac 9:21.

    The scripture we are reading, along with ll Corinthians 11:4, will put to rest false religions and false gospels that have sprung up among us. Read the Bible and talk to Jesus. We can't go wrong!

  • Rev Horton Singleton
    The book of Galatians gives a clear view of God working salvation and accptance in one who have turned from the worldly life to accepting Jesus Christ as his personal savior the changing of paul on the Damascus road demonstrates how God can change our hell bound direction and show us the heaven bound direction if we allow him...praise his wonderful name.

    The Law of the OT, show us that we are in bondage because of our sins. Jesus Spirit free us from the law. Jesus said he came to fulfill the law so that we would be recognized by His Spirit, even if we did not know all the laws. We are free from sin and under no condemnation. If we abide in His spirit we can be fruitful and multiply, and bring joy, honor, and praise to God Kingdom through others
