    Galatians Session #2 Trapped by a Fake Gospel Galatians Session #2 Trapped by a Fake Gospel Presentation Transcript

    • TRAPPED  BY  A  PHONY  GOSPEL   how  to  know  the  difference   between  the  real  gospel  and  the   fake  gospel  
    • 29  DIFFERENT  ISSUES  1.  Paul  was  the  writer  and  the  people  in  Gala:an   churches  were  the  readers.    1:1-­‐5  2.  The  Gala:ans  had  been  fooled  into  forsaking   the  real  gospel  for  a  false  gospel.  1:6-­‐10    3.  The  original  gospel  proclaimed  by  Paul  was   given  by  personal  revela:on  through  Jesus   Christ,  not  learned  from  someone  else.   1:11,12  
    • 29  DIFFERENT  ISSUES  4.  When  Paul  became  a  believer  in  Jesus  Christ   he  didn’t  go  to  Jerusalem  (1:13-­‐17)  5.  When  Paul  went  to  Jerusalem  aOer  three   years  he  didn’t  talk  about  the  gospel  message   he  was  preaching  (1:18-­‐24)  6.  When  Paul  went  to  Jerusalem  aOer  14  years   he  was  opposed  by  false  believers  but   affirmed  by  the  apostles  and  leaders  (2:1-­‐10)  
    • 29  DIFFERENT  ISSUES  7.  Paul  had  to  defend  the  real  gospel  in  front  of   Peter  and  the  whole  church  at  An:och   (2:11-­‐15)  8.  The  real  gospel  doesn’t  work  the  same  way  as   tradi:onal  Jewish  religion  (2:15,16)  9.  The  real  gospel  starts  with  a  death  and   resurrec:on  (2:17-­‐21)  10. The  real  gospel  involves  supernatural  Holy   Spirit  power  at  work  in  you  (3:1-­‐5)  
    • 29  DIFFERENT  ISSUES  11. The  real  gospel  is  as  old  as  Abraham  (3:6-­‐9)  12. The  real  gospel  works  the  same  way  in  every   na:on  and  culture  (3:10—14)  13. The  coming  of  the  law  of  Moses  didn’t   change  the  gospel  message  (3:15-­‐18)  14. The  reason  the  law  was  given  was  to  point  us   to  Christ  (3:19,20)  15. The  law  is  like  a  child-­‐minder  wai:ng  for  the   heir  to  make  his/her  own  choice  (3:21-­‐4:3)  
    • 29  DIFFERENT  ISSUES  16. The  real  gospel  makes  us  sons  and  daughters,   not  just  members  of  staff  (4:4-­‐11)  17. Paul  was  showing  love  by  telling  them  the   truth  (4:12-­‐16)  18. The  goal  of  the  gospel  is  for  Christ  to  fully   shape  your  life  (4:17-­‐20)  19. The  comparison  between  the  real  and  fake   gospels  can  be  seen  in  the  story  of  Ishmael   and  Isaac  (4:21-­‐31)  
    • 29  DIFFERENT  ISSUES  20. The  genuine  gospel  works  by  grace  to   produce  freedom  (5:1-­‐6)  21. The  people  who  promote  the  fake  gospel  will   always  persecute  those  who  want  to  live  by   the  real  gospel  (5:7-­‐12)  22. The  real  gospel  is  not  a  :cket  to  greater  self   indulgence  (5:13-­‐15)  23. Real  gospel  freedom  is  to  live  by  the  power  of   the  Spirit  (5:16-­‐18)  
    • 29  DIFFERENT  ISSUES  24. A  life  lived  by  unrestrained  regular  human   nature  produces  its  tell-­‐tale  results  (5:19-­‐21)  25. A  life  lived  by  Holy  Spirit  power  produces   different  tell-­‐tale  results  (5:22-­‐26)  26. The  real  gospel  is  about  geng  free  from  the   power  of  sin  (6:1-­‐5)  27. All  of  our  choices  will  produce  a  mul:plied   result  much  like  a  harvest  (6:6-­‐10)  
    • HOW  DO  A  REGULAR  GROUP  OF  PEOPLE  WHO  HAVE  BECOME  FOLLOWERS  OF  JESUS  CHRIST  SET  ASIDE  THE  REAL  GOSPEL  FOR….  A  FAKE  GOSPEL?  
    • GALATIANS  1:6-­‐10  6  I  am  totally  amazed  that  you  could  so  quickly   desert  the  one  who  called  you  into  the  grace   of  Christ  and  turn  to  a  different  gospel   message,  which  is  not  the  same  as  the  gospel   message  you  originally  received.    7  There  really   is  no  ‘other’  gospel.    Certain  people  have  been   causing  trouble  among  you  and  their  aim  is  to   pervert  the  genuine  gospel  of  Christ.  
    • GALATIANS  1:6-­‐10  8  Even  if  we,  or  an  angel  from  heaven  should   come  and  proclaim  to  you  a  different  gospel   from  the  one  you  received  he  should  be   considered  accursed.    9As  I  have  just  said,  and   say  again:    if  anyone  should  come  to  you   preaching  or  teaching  a  different  gospel   message  than  the  one  you  received  when  we   first  came  he  should  be  considered  as   accursed.  
    • GALATIANS  1:6-­‐10  10  When  I  speak  in  this  way,  do  you  think  I  am   trying  to  please  people  or  God?    If  I  was  ever   found  to  be  trying  to  please  people  I  would   not  be  a  genuine  servant  of  Christ.  
    • The  ongoing  aim  for  us  is  to  discover  what  God  has  said  GOD  HAD  SOMETHING  HE  WANTED  TO  SAY  
    • IT  WAS  SO  IMPORTANT  THAT  HE  PRESERVED  IT  FOR  EVERYONE  EVERYWHERE  
    • GOD    SAYS  UNIQUE  THINGS    ONLY  BECAUSE  HE  WANTS  TO    DO  UNIQUE    THINGS  
    • GOD    WANTS  TO  DO  UNIQUE    THINGS  IN  US  SO  THAT  HE  CAN  DO  UNQIUE  THINGS  THROUGH  US  
    • GALATIANS  1:6-­‐10   GOD   OTHERS   ME  
    • GALATIANS  1:6-­‐10   GOD   OTHERS   ME  
    • INFORMATION  1.  What  has  happened  is  amazing.  2.  The  followers  of  Christ  in  the  Gala:an   churches  have  deserted  the  idea  of  following   God.  3.  The  message  they  have  adopted  is  not  the   same  as  the  message  they  originally  received.  4.  It  is  not  a  gospel  message  at  all.  5.  This  has  come  about  because  certain  people   have  caused  trouble  among  them.  
    • INFORMATION  6.  The  aim  of  the  people  causing  trouble  is  to  make   their  message  sound  like  the  gospel  but  in  fact  it   is  a  perversion  of  the  gospel.  7.  Anyone  who  tries  to  pervert  the  gospel  should  be   “accursed”  no  ma`er  what  authority  they  claim   to  represent  (angels,  older  believers  etc.)  8.  Paul  is  speaking  this  way  as  a  servant  of  Christ,   not  as  someone  trying  to  please  other  people.  
    • THE  SITUATION  1.  Paul  and  Barnabas  came  to  this  region  on  their  first   missionary  journey  (c.  48,49  AD)  2.  Some:me  aOer  they  had  returned  to  An:och,   conserva:ve  Jewish  believers  came  to  the  Gala:an   churches  telling  them  that  they  had  to  adopt  Jewish   tradi:ons  in  order  to  be  genuine  followers  of  Christ.  3.  A  mee:ng  was  called  in  Jerusalem  to  sort  out  the  issue   rela:ng  to  Gen:le  followers  of  Christ.    (49/50  AD)  4.  Paul  had  already  confronted  this  problem  and  had   taken  a  strong  stand  that  Gen:les  should  not  be   required  to  adopt  Jewish  religious  tradi:ons.  (49/50   AD)  
    • THE  GROUPS  INVOLVED   JEWISH   GALATIANS   BELIEVERS   PAUL  
    • THE  GROUPS  INVOLVED   THE  FAKE   THE  REAL   GOSPEL   GOSPEL   THE   GALATIANS  
    • OUR  OWN  SITUATION   FAKE   THE  REAL   GOSPELS?   GOSPEL   US?  
    • WHAT  DOES  GOD  WANT  TO  DO  IN  US  SO  THAT  HE  CAN  DO  THINGS  THROUGH  US?  
    • WHAT?  1.  The  fake  gospel  can  turn  up  by  means  of  some   very  credible  people.  2.  The  fake  gospel  can  sound  like  a  message  that   IMPROVES  the  real  gospel  –  ie.  Adds  to  it  3.  Some:mes  people  pervert  the  gospel  without   realizing  what  they  are  doing.  4.  The  real  gospel  must  be  defended.  5.  Defending  the  real  gospel  will  some:mes   mean  offending  good  people
