Discussion for Galatians 2

    I am starting to study figures of speech that are used in the Bible. It is helping me tremendously to under stand what I am reading. No one ever taught me a thing about figures when involved with churches. But I find that without a basic understanding of figures of speech, the Word of God becomes much more difficult. For example: anaphora in Ephesians 6:12.

    To Bro. Daniel FC on Gal. ch. 2 - I answered your question about the flood-time 'laws' 3 wks. ago. I'm not one to debate God's word. There's nothing wrong with that; I just don't do it.
  • Bro. Daniel FC
    To: Irene 123 Part 1 Are you saying that God destroyed the antediluvians in spite of the fact that they had no laws to guide them in righteousness? Is God unfair? Sin is the transgression of the law 1Jn. 3:4, and the wages of sin is death Rom. 6:23.
  • Bro. Daniel FC
    Part 2
    Why would Cain and Abel bring sacrifices, unless God instructed them to? Most likely the first family received other instructions/laws. Adam and Eve were commanded not to eat from a certain tree, under the death penalty. They disobeyed and sin entered into the world. That is why Christ had to die, to atone for their and our sins.
  • BSP
    Verse 21 brings out a good point. If righteousness is by the Law alone, then Christ died for nothing.
