Upon hearing that some were distorting the purity of the one true Gospel, the apostle Paul penned a letter of great consternation to the Galatian church. As Alistair Begg discusses the turncoats and troublemakers of Galatia, he warns of similar dangers surrounding the local church today. When we are grounded in the Gospel, we will not give sway to false teaching, regardless of the messenger.
6I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.
10For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant2 of Christ.
