Galatians Chapter 1 Discussion

  • Andrew Kingsly Raj on Galatians 1
    St Paul I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the Power of God for Salvation

    R C Sproul (Sermon: The Transforming Power of the Gospel)

    I'm sure there are many reasons that motivate us to change the gospel because we perceive the gospel to be not good news, but bad news, or at least if it's not good news, it's not the best news, and we can improve it and make it better than the gospel that it is.

    May be that's what motivates us.

    May be it's because the gospel reduces is to shame, and we can't stand that shame, and so we want to change it.

    Or we see it as a stumbling block, and people are hostile to it, and so we figure that a little spoonful of sugar might make the medicine go down and so we soften it. We delude it in our attempt to improve upon it.

    Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever more that same sprit that raised Christ from the dead, is that same sprit that quickens us today to walk in the newness of life, We have been set free and he whom the sun sets free is free indeed. Thank you Jesus

    John:14 .6 and 14

    6 Jesus said I am the way, The truth and the life no one came to the father except through me.14 if you ask anything in my name I will do it.

    With this,we made and understand that Jesus is the only way to heaven and only one we should please

    To help with my statement previously an excerpt from my book The mysterious castle by JCBU undercover

    Mathew Henry 1710 The design of the decree to set aside the ceremoninal law,and its carnal ordinances,believers were confirmed in the christian faith,because it set up a spiritual way of serving God,as suited to the nature of both God ,and man.Thus the church increased in numbers daily.Here is the sum of the whole gospel,the covenant of grace in a few words.Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ,and be saved ,and thy house.Book is rated x a cross on its side CNB certainly not perfect! If there is an interest here I will put excerpts from the book of Bible verses,poems, and puzzles I read the bible daily and have for some time it has helped me molded me shaped me guided me.I ask the readers of my books to interact with there own stories or poems.As we can all take this journey seperate yet together.God's peace,mercy,and grace be upon you all in Jesus name amen.
  • Tim legarie on Galatians 1

To be set free from the traditions of men.No No X Y Z No A B C Believe and be set free in Jesus name amen Hallelujah it is written.

    Brother Tim,

    I agree with Brother Adam who previously responded to your comments. Surely we most do more than just believe. Jesus states in scripture below: he will reward every man according to his work. This does take action on our part, as Jesus also states in scripture below, that he will come quickly and reward those who keep his commandments, and they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

    Revelation 22:12-14

    12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city

    So, if you believe what Jesus is stating here in the scripture: We must then keep his (God's) commandments and produce good work/good fruit!

    Jesus didn't die on the cross, so that all of us can keep sinning as much as we want - with no repercussions. There is no free ticket to heaven!

    God Bless
  • Richard in Christ on Galatians 1
    Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

    Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

    Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

    Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

    For as the Heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

    As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

    Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

    Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

    Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

    Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

  • Donna on Galatians 1

    I'm trying to find an in print (not on computer) 1611 King James Version Bible WITH the Apocrypha. I'm having trouble finding what I'm looking for. The Ryrie study Bible was recommended but I'm not sure it includes the Apocrypha.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Galatians 1
    Hi Donna,

    As I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for. An original 1611 KJV Bible or just a reprint. I'd say just type in "1611 KJV Bible" on google or maybe amazon and see what comes up. Check the details to see if it's what you are looking for.

    Hope that helps and you find your Holy Bible.

    God Bless.
  • Donna - in Reply on Galatians 1
    Thank you, Richard. I've found the 1611 on many websites, I'm just having trouble confirming whether or not the Apocrypha is included.

    I appreciate your reply.

    Your sister in Christ,

  • Adam - in Reply on Galatians 1
    Hi Donna, Hendrickson Publishers publishes one called Holy Bible 1611 Edition King James Version which includes the apocrypha and is in the original old English, just not the gothic font.
  • Jerry Kurete on Galatians 1
    Does the Bible say winning a soul is the same as winning a nation?

    Proverbs 11:30

    The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on Galatians 1
    Hi E L,

    Yes, it seems they did. The first time Paul went to Jerusalem was three years after his Conversion, Where He saw only Simon Peter and James the Lords brother and abode there fifteen days. Galatians 1:18-19.

    Then after another fourteen years he went up to Jerusalem again. Stating James, Cephas, and John were there. Galatians 2:9. Though it seems he probably saw all of them at that visit.

    Hope that helps. God Bless.

    Thank. you for your biblical reference

    Hello Esther,

    I looked into this a little for you. As I know it comes up in that some people don't believe you should cremate a dead body. As it seems some have stated it may keep that person from "being resurrected" in the end.

    So one verse came up where a body was burned before burial. 1 Samuel 31:11-13.

    As there is no direct Scripture against cremation. The people of Israel would normally buried their dead. As today the cost to bury a dead body is very high. Cremation is the most cost effective way to dispose of someones remains in my knowledge.

    In my knowledge it really doesn't matter what is done to the body after death. We are all dust and, our bodies, return to dust after our death. Job 34:14-15. As the saying "ashes to ashes, dust to dust". If any think it has anything to do that whoever was cremated won't be resurrected. I'd say "what about people who died in a fire, eaten by a shark, or mutilated in a terrible car accident, or something?" Hopefully they wouldn't think that has anything to do with God being able to resurrect them on the last day. As God can do anything.

    I hope my view helps you. If anyone else has any other view feel free to post.

    God Bless.
  • Lee Jones on Galatians 1
    How say they that Paul was in Arabia for three years? Verses 17 & 18? That's what I've heard more than once. Thank you.
  • Galatians 1:1

    "Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)"

    Jesus is not a man he is the Lord God.

    Christ in ME, my (only) HOPE of Glory!
  • Vanessa on Galatians 1
    We die to self and it is He that works through us by faith, we do not preach our words but the Lords, we can not change it , and why would we want to when it's all truth
  • Baeza Fisseha on Galatians 1:10
    As long as we seek the praise of men, we can not live exclusively for Christ. Christ gets all the glory because he is the one who accomplished our salvation. Do not conform to the world but be transformed and live for and through Christ.
  • Obbie Beal on Galatians 1
    The above verses are examples of how artfully plus quickly the forces of evil using mankind attack those who accept JESUS as their SAVIOR, as it relates to SALVATION through John 3:16-21. The forces of evil knows how gullible humans are to a lie, especially a half-truth, or ..., ..., so in 2020, where ever evil can, evil continue using deceived men /wolfs with sheep clothing to torment, scatter, kill, device, ..., especially those of of John 3:16-21.
  • DeLores on Galatians 1
    I know that the book of Galatians is enlightening. It has liberated me from salvation under the law of Moses. I think God for the Blood of Jesus that has saved me and set me free from the law of sin and death.
  • Justus on Galatians 1

    .Supporting the state Israel has become so popular.
  • Wayne Tucker on Galatians 1
    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!
  • Mary Campbell - in Reply on Galatians 1
    Amen. Paul was now preaching the gospel and some of the saints was still afraid of him because they remembered when he was persecuting the saints. Still today, people tend to forget that if the Lord saved them He can save anybody
