Gal 3:1-5

{4} Did you suffer so many things in vain-- if indeed it was in vain?

{5} Does He then, who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?

Gal 3:1 (living)

1 Oh, foolish Galatians! What magician has hypnotized you and cast an evil spell upon you? For you used to see the meaning of Jesus Christ’s death as clearly as though I had waved a placard before you with a picture on it of Christ dying on the cross. (TLB)

ILLUSTRATION

The privatization of religion is going on at several different levels. As we already noted, religious identity is now a matter of individual choice rather than family or community loyalty, but even beyond that, individual, make- your-own religion is one of the choices. A famous example is Sheila, the California nurse interviewed by the authors of Habits of the Heart, who called her personal assortment of beliefs "Sheilaism."
