Ga 1:14 Profited in the Jews' religion. Made progress in it. He was a Pharisee, was well educated, exceedingly zealous, and reached a high degree. Traditions of my fathers. Not only the law of Moses, but the traditions handed down which were taught so assiduously. See Mt 15:2 Mr 7:3,13. Our Lord condemned these Jewish traditions.

    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!

    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
