Today lets look at Galatians 1:6-9. Those verses say....
6I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! 9As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!
So what can we learn from these verses
1. Some spiritual leaders are not preaching the truth about Jesus and our need for him. Some have made the gospel about being rich, healthily, and a problem free life. I wonder what those who preach that would say to Paul or Job. Both of them went through hard times. The gospel is one thing and that is all of us have sinned but Jesus died for every sin and then rose from the dead to justified us if we will receive Jesus as our savior.
2. The Christian faith is a call to God. The true is the Christian faith is not a religious based faith but about a relationship with God through faith in Jesus. We can't earn salvation through doing a number of good things but we must turn to God. I heard a preacher once say the Christian faith is impossible without Jesus. No faith no Christian faith.
Well those are some things I see from those vereses.
