Galatians 2:1-10 – Freedom from Religious Chains
Paul continues to fill in gaps in the story of his early years as a follower of Jesus Christ. This Sunday we will focus in heavily on 2:4-5. People in the early church slipped in to spy on Christians who exercised different freedoms than those to which they were accustomed. They couldn't believe that other Christians thought differently, or practiced different things - all while clinging to the One True Gospel of Jesus Christ. So, they tried to drag them backward into slavery to unhelpful rules and regulations. Whoa! The same thing happens today. We all can fall victim to it, and to perpetrating it. Let's figure out what real Christian freedom looks like as we dig in together!
