Galatians 5. Forum Discussion

There is a lot of content in chapter 5. Paul begins the chapter by again reminding the Galatians that Christ has freed them from the Law and that they are to strive to achieve Christ’s example of faith working through love.

The middle part of the chapter, beginning in verse 7 has Paul asking the Galatians, “Who hindered you from obeying the truth? He is not pleased about something that somebody did to hinder the Galatians and goes as far as to say, “I wish that those who are troubling you would even mutilate themselves.”

Verse 14 states that the whole Law is fulfilled in the statement, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.” - Amen

Verses 16 – 26 go into detail about the conflict between the Spirit and the Flesh.

Paul provides examples of what not to do (Works Of The Flesh):

  • Immorality
  • Impurity
  • Sensuality
  • Idolatry
  • Sorcery
  • Enmities
  • Strife
  • Jealousy
  • Outbursts
  • Anger
  • Disputes
  • Dissensions
  • Factions
  • Envying
  • Drunkenness
  • Carousing
  • and things like these

And he finishes with examples of what to do (Fruit Of The Spirit):

  • Love
  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Goodness
  • Faithfulness
  • Gentleness
  • And self-control

Amen

Here's another chapter that deals with people of faith falling away. It's always been that way. Thankfully, God is faithful and just, and ready to forgive us if we repent of our sins. If God can forgive us, we should forgive ourselves and free ourselves from the weight of guilt.
