There is No Other Gospel than Christ Part I

Bible Verse Galatians 1:6-7

I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.

Commentary:

In this section of chapter one Paul makes a very frank, and direct statement to the Galatian church. Paul is astonished to the degree and speed of which they abandoned the grace of God and the Gospel of Christ. The word Paul uses for "abandoned" is the Greek word, "metatithemi" which means "to be a deserter." How could they so quickly abandon God? This is the same word used when a soldier in the middle of the battle abandons or deserts his post, thereby helping the enemy to achieve victory. And for clarification, this is not a situation where the Galatians were being forced to abandon Christ. Rather, these were Christian men and women who were easily tricked or seduced. And by their own choosing, they were abandoning God. Moreover the word used for "quick" in these passages carries the meaning to do something suddenly and with ease.

Paul is not holding back any punches. He is using very strong words and making very strong statements. Paul wants the Galatians to understand the gravity of their situation. In addition, his statements convey a sense of not only surprise, but also dismay and sadness at the actions of the Galatian Christians. The Apostle Paul is having difficulty comprehending the reasons and justifications for such actions. The Greek word Paul uses for "amazed" is "thaumazo" which means to be both astonished and bewildered. Paul wants to make it very clear to the Galatian church, they are not just turning their backs on Jesus; but they are abandoning the one who called them. They are abandoning God! God calls all believers unto Himself, and Paul is asking them directly, "why are you abandoning God?" Why if they the Galatians had been saved by grace, and justified by the blood of Christ. Now, turn away from that grace to justify themselves in the flesh.

As we read these passages we cannot forget the appeal sin has to our flesh. Our flesh loves any opportunity to parade itself. Our flesh loves any opportunity to develop pride and that's what the Judaizers were offering. By adding works to salvation, they appealed to the sin nature of the Galatians. And the Galatians were so easily fooled they did not realize when you add anything to grace it is no longer grace, but instead, it becomes works and legalism.

The Work of the Gospel is the Lost

Matthew 9:35-38

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."

The Lord is Near to All Who Call Upon Him

Psalm 145:18-21

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. The Lord preserves all who love Him, But all the wicked He will destroy. My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, And all flesh shall bless His holy name Forever and ever.

The Lord is Mercy and Truth

Psalm 25:8-10

Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies

Everything is Possible in Christ

Luke 1:37,49-50

For with God nothing will be impossible. For He who is mighty has done great things for me, And holy is His name. And His mercy is on those who fear Him From generation to generation.

Jesus Rebukes the Proud

Proverbs 16:18-20

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud. He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.

Man's Ways Lead to Death

Proverbs 14:11-12, 14

The house of the wicked will be overthrown, But the tent of the upright will flourish. There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways, But a good man will be satisfied from above.

The Wise Trust in Christ

Proverbs 14:15-16, 18

The simple believes every word, But the prudent considers well his steps. A wise man fears and departs from evil, But a fool rages and is self-confident. The simple inherit folly, But the prudent are crowned with knowledge.

In the End Evil is Conquered

Proverbs 14:17, 19

A quick-tempered man acts foolishly, And a man of wicked intentions is hated. The evil will bow before the good, And the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
