Discussion for Galatians 2

  • A disciple
    Daniel; I haven't looked on this post for a while, and would like now to follow up with you. Please don't be offended; but 3.5 years is does not make the same as 40 years; but our boasting is entirely in the Lord's mercy! Paul was right in his judgment, WITHOUT RESPECT OF PERSONS, for Peter was to be condemned in that he feared what the Jews would think, and led others by example of hypocrisy.
  • Janet
    Daniel I understand what you are saying but I don't agree with you totally and I do not agree with you to compare Paul and Peter on a platform like this someone young in faith can get confused. . The important thing is that Peter needed to be corrected. How should Paul have done when others joined Peter to do the same? Or don't you think he should be corrected?
  • Spenner
    It is such a wonderful experience to be Crucified with Christ.In 2004 on the day Pentecost was celebrated I was rebaptized in the name of Jesus (Romans 6:3-8;Acts 2:38).This was the result of revelation.Sadly many are only baptised in Jesus' titles(Matt 28:19)and not his Name.The Lord Jesus is the head of the church why is his name not used in Baptism?
  • Brother Daniel FC
    To a Disciple. Don’t get me wrong: I love Ap. Paul: I just disagree of how he treats Ap. Peter, who is equally dear to me. His attitude of a learned man, a Pharisee who studied at the feet of Gamaliel, towards a simple fisherman, strikes me as arrogance. I don’t think Jesus would agree with that. And that is not all… so, talk to me Disciple!
  • Brother Daniel FC
    To a Disciple. No, I am not hasty, and it doesn’t take special revelation to see where Ap. Paul comes from; whence his behavior. Read the whole letter to Galatians, and you will understand better. Accusing your fellow worker, who was trained by Jesus for 3.5 years, a faithful man, full of the Holy Spirit, of hypocrisy, and cursing the people who disagree with you; is hardly Christian behavior.
  • A disciple
    Daniel; You are too hasty in your speech and sadly lacking in understanding and respect for things much higher than you! Are you so likewise endowed with a calling and wisdom and knowledge by revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ? And are you likewise travelling through foreign Countries risking your life to preach the Glad Tidings under constant persecution, slander, and betrayals? Why scrutinize?
