Galatians Session #2 Trapped by a Fake Gospel

  1. 1. TRAPPED  BY  A  PHONY  GOSPEL   how  to  know  the  difference   between  the  real  gospel  and  the   fake  gospel  
  2. 2. 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  
  3. 3. 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)  
  4. 4. 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)  
  5. 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)  
  6. 6. 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)  
  7. 7. 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)  
  8. 8. 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)  
  9. 9. HOW  DO  A  REGULAR  GROUP  OF  PEOPLE  WHO  HAVE  BECOME  FOLLOWERS  OF  JESUS  CHRIST  SET  ASIDE  THE  REAL  GOSPEL  FOR….  A  FAKE  GOSPEL?  
  10. 10. 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.  
  11. 11. 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.  
  12. 12. 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.  
  13. 13. The  ongoing  aim  for  us  is  to  discover  what  God  has  said  GOD  HAD  SOMETHING  HE  WANTED  TO  SAY  
  14. 14. IT  WAS  SO  IMPORTANT  THAT  HE  PRESERVED  IT  FOR  EVERYONE  EVERYWHERE  
  15. 15. GOD    SAYS  UNIQUE  THINGS    ONLY  BECAUSE  HE  WANTS  TO    DO  UNIQUE    THINGS  
  16. 16. GOD    WANTS  TO  DO  UNIQUE    THINGS  IN  US  SO  THAT  HE  CAN  DO  UNQIUE  THINGS  THROUGH  US  
  17. 17. GALATIANS  1:6-­‐10   GOD   OTHERS   ME  
  18. 18. GALATIANS  1:6-­‐10   GOD   OTHERS   ME  
  19. 19. 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.  
  20. 20. 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.  
  21. 21. 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)  
  22. 22. THE  GROUPS  INVOLVED   JEWISH   GALATIANS   BELIEVERS   PAUL  
  23. 23. THE  GROUPS  INVOLVED   THE  FAKE   THE  REAL   GOSPEL   GOSPEL   THE   GALATIANS  
  24. 24. OUR  OWN  SITUATION   FAKE   THE  REAL   GOSPELS?   GOSPEL   US?  
  25. 25. WHAT  DOES  GOD  WANT  TO  DO  IN  US  SO  THAT  HE  CAN  DO  THINGS  THROUGH  US?  
  26. 26. 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
