But when it comes to the Good News of the Gospel, the "add ons" can not only detract from the Gospel -- they can make it no Gospel at all. A group of Jewish believers were going around to the early churches that Paul had founded and preached that these Gentile Christians had to become Jewish in order for God to accept them. Paul recognized the danger in this and wrote his letter to these young churches in Galatia to be sure they didn't lose the wonderful gift of freedom Jesus bought for them.
We'll be diving into the first chapter in the book of Galatians this coming Sunday, April 22nd, in our series "Set Free". Although we may not think we need to follow the Jewish laws in order to please God, there are many ways we can slip into the same kind of problems. I hope you'll be able to join us.
