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.

    Edna,Eph.2:8-10"Saved by grace through faith" a gift from God. But once the gift is given one must do His commandments,good works.James2:17"Even so faith if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." Please read the whole book of James. Dead faith will not get anyone into His Kingdom. Nothing negates the scripture in James.

    The 12 preached the gospel of the kingdom always to the Jew, Paul preached the gospel of Grace mainly the Gentile but Jew's welcome. Peter did go to the house of a gentile.
