  • Bruce on Galatians 1
    Kieran: Knowing that a man is not justified by The Works of The Law but by The Faith of Jesus Christ, even we have Believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be Justified by The Faith of Christ, and not by the works of The Law: for by the works of The Law shall no Flesh be Justified. Galatians 2:16
  • A disciple on Proverbs 14
    "Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people." If we can look so hard on our unsaved family members, neighbors and coworkers and demand that they are accountable to the Law of God, and His Judgments upon disobedience how do so many then not recognize the beam in their own eye, or the hypocrisy of calling themselves saved Christians, while they are clearly still bound in their sins? "And if we seek to be justified in Christ, we ourselves be found sinful men, whether Christ be minister of sin? God forbid." Galatians 2:17 Wycliffe Bible The LORD God our Saviour says, "Sin no more, that not a worse thing come upon you " yet some still strongly protest, saying, "We all sin every day we can't help but sin " and then misuse the Scriptures to cover their defeated lives. If one breaks a hedge, the serpent will bite! But that doesn't negate the truth of the Glad Tidings, that Christ sets us REALLY free only that that one has fallen into sin! But we have an Almighty and wonderfully merciful Saviour, who is able to save to the uttermost ALL who call upon Him. So if you're having a problem bring it to the Lord in repentance, and BE CONVERTED! that your sins may be blotted out and you shall receive forgiveness and all the fullness of His great and glorious Salvation Victory.
  • Ray321 on Ephesians 1
    Galatians 2:20 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Paul still had to live in his flesh, that means he still had sin in his life, thank God for the Holy Spirit inside him that never sins. The flesh still will sin.
  • Ray321 on 1 Timothy 1
    Galatians 2:7-8 7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter 8 For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles: Paul had a mission from Jesus himself to reach out to Gentiles and Peter to reach out to Jews.

  • Ray321
    My friends, you see Apostle Peter in 2 Peter :15-16 had a hard time understanding Paul's episode, but he did believe that it was given to Paul from Jesus himself and that anybody that didn't believe, there will be destruction. Peter was for the JEWS and Paul was for the Gentiles Galatians 2:8 how wonderful that Jesus though about the Gentiles. Paul is the Apostle for the Gentiles. All true. ...
  • Michael C. on Malachi 3
    Answering Galatians 2:20: The second greatest commandment; after loving the LORD our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength; is to love our neighbor as ourselves. When the King sits upon His throne, and all are gathered before Him for eternal judgment; it is how we cared for His poor and needy, His sick and strangers and imprisoned, that will set us either on His right hand, or His left.

  • Andy on Leviticus 27
    Galatians 2:16-17. Is really the answer, Are you still sinning? Christ is not the minister of sin, and your burden to pay tithes will not atone for it.
  • Jacob on Matthew 16
    Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 5:24 And they that are Christ 's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Manybe this will help explain verse 24 for you.
  • Tochukwu Anthony Obi on Hebrews 6:6
    See,it is very glaring and doesn 't need be confusing. Paul is saying that there exists some christians who got born again and were invited to the Glorious message of God 's grace and Righteousness in christ jesus but could not be able to endorse or comprehend such lavish of Mercy by God towards us in Christ Jesus. Paul the Apostle explain it in Galatians 2:16, Romans 8:1 and Hebrews 10:18. Such a person may say "I know jesus died for my sins but now that I am in Him,if I sin, I must try to make it right,but the more I try,the more I fail sin again , so I think the effort I put is not worth it. I could as well go on living because I don 't think this Gospel of Jesus saving people is real ". Such a person has created a New Testament chasm from God 's grace. Galatians 5:4 says exactly same thing.By such act,the person crucify to himself the Lord Jesus christ and disgrace Grace count it useless .
  • Ron on Mark 1
    Verse 15 reads , believe the gospel . We understand Chirst has not died yet, what is the gospel. Galatians 2 7 tell what this gospel is . Gospel of the circumcision ,at this time frame.this is in KJV most other bibles pervert this verse. romans 16 25 , 1cor. 15 1 4 this is the gospel of the uncircumcision. Always rightly divide. 2tim. 2 15
  • Bill on Ephesians 5:1
    But the truth of scripture and our experience of failure should draw us away from fleshly attempts to imitate, instead driving us to cast our dependence on the Spirit of Christ Who lives in us to live through us Galatians 2 20 . Cr. Matt Davis Imitation Christians Revival Forum
  • "Biblical sanctification is the lifelong process of learning to let Christ live His life through us. It is summed up well in Galatians 2 20. As one submits to the process, he grows spiritually. If one does not understand the process correctly or refuses to yield to the Holy Spirit s working in his life, growth will be stunted. Ongoing, experiential sanctification and spiritual growth are, therefore, closely related concepts.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson on Acts 2
    Continuing with the response. In Galatians 2 11 12 It wasn t that Peter was wavering in the Gospel, Peter was trying to keep up appearances before his peers. He did not want these certain Jews to see him eating with the Gentiles. This happened 14 years after Paul had received the Holy Ghost. Paul received the Holy Ghost after Peter did. Peter had it together on the day of Pentecost. In Acts 15 9 Peter teaching them that were with him that no difference should be made between Jews and Gentiles. If I can say it like this, he was telling them not to show prejudice. If you read up a little further you will find that Peter was saying to them that the Gentiles received the Holy Ghost just like them.
  • James on Acts 2
    Titus 3 11 and 1Cor 14 38. Thanks for answering all my questions. One last thing. Simon Peter was rebuked by the Lord Matt 16 23, Acts 10 14 15, and Paul Galatians 2 11 12. But he had his doctrine straight by Acts 15 verse 9. I know how you believe. My brother believes the same way. If you would like to talk more in a kind fashon. I will check to see if you type back and I will give you my email and we can go over Acts 19. Have a good day.
  • Jerusala on Psalms 51
    Thank you Jesus for your precious blood. For Galatians 2 20 and for all the Word of God.Thank you for finding me when I did not know you. I am so blessed for choosing me. Cause I did not deserve your forgiveness or mercy. Because you love me and all those who belive in you, and who have ears to hear the Gospel and believe. Shalom.
  • KJB on Acts 2
    Why aren 't "WE " pious. Take a look at the sermons of Jesus and Paul and see that they used "YOU " instead of "WE ". Lets not offend anyone now. They thought Jesus could have been "Elias, and others, Jeremias, " Matt 16. Read Jer. Chapter 23 and compare it to Matthew 23 and see the resemblance. Having said all that, Paul had to straighten Peter out on his doctrine, see Galatians 2 verse 11 and Jesus had to get him straight several times see Matthew 16 verse 23. Having said that, Peters message to the JEWS is not for us today. By Acts 15 he had found out it was by FAITH and no works. I hope you believe that. ACTS 16 verse 31 will help.
  • Jesus: the Light of the world on 2 Peter 2:1
    This is to the unsaved hence the destruction part and John 5 24 is proof No condemnation for the saved The explanations above are quite wordy and may scare many into believing they have to work harder to be pure Quite the opposite message is really being given in this verse If Jesus bought you with his blood YOU ARE PURE forever and old man has died never to be unclean again Remember the law justifies no one Galatians 2 16 a heresy would be saying the law does justify and that people should work it diligently to be righteous impossible and it denies Jesus incredible gift Another heresy would be that Jesus Christ the Saviour and light of the world was not enough Woe Do not be a foolish Galatian Do not walk in Darkness instead KNOW you re saved by his blood and that eternal redemption was obtained FOR US by Him Not us Hebrews 9 12 Have the Light of Life John 8 12 Men will attempt to speak death on you for laws that justify no one and the saved are not under They are Pharisee like and should be ignored 100 No one can be self righteous and only a fool thinks Jesus did not cover all They walk in dark death
  • Truth of GRACE on 1 John 3:4
    Jesus did it all folks. TRUST our LORD, not yourselves. Only one way to be righteous.Go to JESUS CHRIST and be saved. He did what we could not.>>> Here we see 1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. >>>Ready for some Peace? This verse above says if you are sinning you are STILL under LAW.(easy math) If you can commit one at all it's only because you've transgressed the law. And that's due to the laws defining the sin committed told you it was one.( Romans 3:20) Which ALSO means you have not gotten saved YET ( or even tried to be!). The "Good" news for the saved? READ IT.>>> Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are NOT under the law, but under GRACE.>>> Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets>>>> Romans 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness>>>Romans10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. I HIGHLY suggest you read this, those attempting to be righteous without being saved, for you cannot do so: Galatians 2:16 and Galatians 3 (whole chapter). DO not be a foolish Galatian either and act like Gods gift was not enough. It was everything, for ALL fell short. Go Praise the LORD and rejoice! You are safe with Jesus!
  • Bro. Daniel FC on Galatians 2
    I feel that the Apostle Peter is getting a bad rap; and that’s not fair! While I appreciate Paul and his writings and recognize him as a great teacher and prophet, I cannot help but notice that even after his conversion, God “was not finished” with him. He appears to be both, boastful (in chapter 1), and angry. Maybe, that’s what they call “righteous indignation”? The transition from Old Testament to New Testament after Christ’s ascension was a work in progress: it did not happen overnight, but lasted quite a few years. As the Holy Spirit instructed the apostles, they, in turn presented the revelations to the believers, either orally or in the written form, “growing in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” ( 2 Peter 3:18). Not all apostles were “enlightened” of the same subject, or at the same time. So, we have “gaps” in time and teachings. And in the case of “circumcision” issue, (which Paul is dealing with in Galatians), the apostles had to have a “congress” at Jerusalem in order to decide what to do, as shows Acts 15. Even Paul’s speech was a work in progress… The language used in Galatians 1:8 “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that, which we have preached unto you, LET HIM BE ACCURSED,” and Galatians 2:12 “I would they were EVEN CUT OFF which trouble you”, leaves something to be desired. Jesus says in Luke 6: “Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you”, verse 28 “BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU, and pray for them which despitefully use you”. Even Apostle Paul agrees with that in Romans 12:14: “Bless them which persecute you: bless, and CURSE NOT.” His statements about “James, Cephas (Peter), and John, WHO SEEMED to be pillars” in the church ( Galatians 2:9), borders on arrogance. I feel like telling him: “Paul, get a life; THEY WERE THE PILLARS OF THE CHURCH while you were persecuting it!” True, they were simple fishermen, not trained at the feet of Gamaliel like you, but they had spent three and a half years at the feet of Jesus: The Greatest Teacher of all times. And, not only that, on the Day of Pentecost they received the power of the Holy Spirit: to preach, to teach and heal. Yes, Paul was a great apostle, but Apostle John was a giant: he was not only trained by Jesus and wrote the Gospel and the Epistles that bear his name, but he received countless visions from Him and wrote the Book of Revelation. And Apostle Peter, he was entrusted with “taking care of His sheep” by Jesus Himself. Also, Paul’s boldness expressed towards Apostle Peter, was uncalled for: “But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed” ( Galatians 2:11). Basically he was blaming Peter for the troubles in Galatia. Too bad Peter had no chance to defend himself. I’m wondering how much did Paul’s criticism of Peter, help those churches… But what really takes the cake, is his advice (good advice though) in Galatians 5:13 “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.’ 15 But IF YE BITE AND DEVOUR ONE ANOTHER, take heed that ye are not consumed one of another.” Sometimes it’s good to take seriously our own advice...
  • Bro. Daniel FC on Galatians 1
    If you want to understand what Paul is saying in this letter, you can’t read just one chapter and expect to fairly evaluate the whole Book. Please read all six chapters; they make up the whole letter, intended to be read by the congregation in Galatia. By doing that, you will find the following:
    1. In the first chapter, Paul is presenting his credentials, and describes what the problem was, without “spelling it out”;
    2. Beginning with the second chapter we learn exactly what the problem was: the teaching by “some”; including Apostle Peter ( Galatians 2:11), that in order to be saved you need to be circumcised, plus other “works of the flesh” described in Galatians 5:19-21;
    3. Throughout his letter Paul mentions “circumcision” many times: Galatians 2:3, 7-9, 11; 3:3; 5:2, 3, 6, 11; 6:12, 13, 15;
    4. In order to combat this false teaching, he expounds on the fact that we are saved by grace through faith in Christ, not by keeping of the Ceremonial Law, which was fulfilled in Him.
    By reading only parts of Galatians, many Christians reach the wrong conclusion that Paul is against keeping the Ten Commandments. That cannot be further from the truth. Here is what Paul declares: “What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law … Wherefore, the law is holy and the commandment holy, and just, and good…” Romans 7:7, 12.
  • Tracy fyler on Exodus 19:13
    Since John 17:3, Philippians 3:8-10, Matthew 7:21-23, verse 9 covered by a thick cloud, Jeremiah 29:13 that the people might hear when I speak with you, and believe you forever. John 6:17-8; 8:12. Jesus marveled in Matthew 8:10. Is there a greater marvel elsewhere? Is the only disease (BELEVING A LIE) caused by either Deception, or Pride. 1 Corinthians 4:7 there is only One God Who cannot lie, Hebrews 13:8. Who says there are no absolutes? The statement is an absolute, humble unselfish FATHER already knows everything, and is the answer, yet humanity is so wrapped up in their shallow little plans they miss the mark. His Glory Revelation 4:11, Galatians 2:20-21, Genesis 15:1, Philippians 3:12 Came here to understand this veiled verse 19:13 but got sidetracked. Sound unfamiliar 2 Corinthians 3:18, Ephesians 4:13.
  • GLENDA on Matthew 18
    krista-- If you still need help on verse 6 I think I can help you. JESUS is using the children as an example because as christian we are children of GOD.GOD is our FATHER just as he was JESUS'S FATHER. Chrildren are a blessing from GOD
    PSALM 127:3-5, galatians 2: 5-9. What will GOD do for us if we stay true HIM? Read HEBREWS: 5-18
  • Good question Anonymous, but please note that the sacrifices were for the Jews. And yes they are bad worshipers if they are not still fulfilling the law as God gave it to them. With one exception, Jesus, you see Jesus came to fulfill the Law for everyone that will believe.

    Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

    So to all the children of God who have professed faith in Christ the law is completed, by faith.

    Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    Now how about you are you worshiping the Creator in faith believing that Christ died for your sins or will you try keeping the Law.

    Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
  • Anonymous on James 2
    Hunh........... I guess Eph 2:8-9 must have been a type O then.

    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:

    9Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    Ones works are insufficient: Isaiah 64:6
    But we are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as FILTHY RAGS; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

    Romans 3:10
    As it is written, THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, no, not one:

    Good works are a manifestation of a born again spirit to be sure. But they did not save anyone. That would mean that Christ's death alone on the cross was not sufficient.

    2 Corinthians 3:5
    Not that we are SUFFICIENT of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency [is] of God;

    2 Corinthians 12:9
    And he said unto me, My grace is SUFFICIENT for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

    One cannot earn God's favor (Grace) it is freely given. We only need to believe.

    Romans 3:20
    Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be JUSTIFIED in his sight: for by the law [is] the knowledge of sin.

    Romans 3:24
    Being JUSTIFIED freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

    Romans 3:28
    Therefore we conclude that a man is JUSTIFIED by faith without the deeds of the law.

    Romans 4:2
    For if Abraham were JUSTIFIED by works, he hath [whereof] to glory; but not before God.

    Romans 5:1
    Therefore being JUSTIFIED by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

    Romans 5:9
    Much more then, being now JUSTIFIED by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

    Romans 8:30
    Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also JUSTIFIED: and whom he JUSTIFIED, them he also glorified.

    1 Corinthians 4:4
    For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby JUSTIFIED: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.

    1 Corinthians 6:11
    And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are JUSTIFIED in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    Galatians 2:16
    Knowing that a man is not JUSTIFIED by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be JUSTIFIED by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be JUSTIFIED.

    Galatians 2:17
    But if, while we seek to be JUSTIFIED by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, [is] therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.

    Galatians 3:11
    But that no man is JUSTIFIED by the law in the sight of God, [it is] evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

    Galatians 3:24
    Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster [to bring us] unto Christ, that we might be JUSTIFIED by faith.

    Galatians 5:4
    Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are JUSTIFIED by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

    1 Timothy 3:16
    And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, JUSTIFIED in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

    Titus 3:7
    That being JUSTIFIED by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

    When verses in scripture seem to contradict each other you must do three things.

    1. Find out what the rest of scripture tell us about the subject. *scripture interprets scripture*

    2. Know the meaning in the original language as some does not translate well from its original. ( 1 John 3:6 and 3:9 are perfect examples) its says one born again is sinless; we know that not to be true it is impossible. A better translation would be to say; anyone born again will not continue in their sinful life style.)

    3. Look at the historical context in which the subject was being written about.

    Conclusion: Man has no part in his salvation, it is truly a gift to them that believe.
