People's Bible Notes for Galatians 1:8


Ga 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, etc. He supposes an impossibility in order to make his statement emphatic. These false teachers said, "Our gospel is of Peter, or of James". Paul replies, "Even though they, or we, or even an angel, preach another gospel, let him be accursed". Accursed. Anathema; given over to the judgments of God. He who corrupts divine truth is an enemy of God, and is under the curse. See 1Co 16:22.

    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

    I walk with God since 50years, m'y whole life changed. As if God has taken all things away And separated me from money And all things And pourred a Great Greta love And compassion in me. I wax unable to furtive those who hurt me, beated me, rejeted me And robbed m'y body i was a baby. I réel the power, the péage in all circumtances And know i would not bé gère if Gode sas not so real.
