Summary: LEGALISM PRODUCES BONDAGE

  Study Tools

LIBERTY IN CHRIST

THE LETTER TO THE GALATIAN CHURCH WAS IN DEFENSE OF THE TRUTH OF GOD’S GRACE OPPOSED THE RIGID TEACHINGS OF LEGALISM. IT IS WISE TO MEASURE ANY TEACHING BY THE TRUTH OF THE APOSTOLIC TEACHINGS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT. CLEARLY, MUCH HEARTACHE CAN BE AVERTED. MOST SCHOLARS AGREE PAUL WROTE THE LETTER TO THE GALATIANS CHURCH AROUND A.D. 50.

GALATIANS 5: 1

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT:

THE YOKE OF SLAVERY PAUL ADDRESSED WAS THE ATTEMPT OF SOME JEWS TO PLACE EVERYONE UNDER THE MOSAIC COVENANT. YES, GOD GAVE THE COVENANT TO MOSES AND THE JEWISH COMMUNITY, HOWEVER, THE OLD COVENANT HAS PASSED AWAY AND A BELIEVER, JEW OR GENTILE, NOW EMBRACES A NEW COVENANT. READ HEBREWS 8: 8-13.

THE OLD COVENANT WAS A COVENANT OF WORKS. THE NEW COVENANT IS A COVENANT OF GRACE. READ EPHESIANS CHAPTER 2.

IT IS CHRIST TO SETS US FREE FROM BONDAGE WHEN YOU ATTEMPT TO FREE YOURSELF; YOU ENTANGLE YOURSELF WITH MORE BONDAGE.

GALATIANS 6:2 “BEAR ONE ANOTHER’S BURDEN, AND THEREFORE FULFILL THE LAW OF CHRIST.” (NABS)

MATTHEW 5: 17 “DO NOT THINK I HAVE COME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OR THE PROPHETS: I DID NOT COME TO ABOLISH BUT TO FULFILL.” (NAB)

JAMES 2: 8 IF HOWEVER YOU ARE FULFILLING THE ROYAL LAW ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOU NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF,” YOU ARE DOING WELL. (NASB)

APPLICATION: A LEGALISTIC APPROACH TO CHRISTIANITY PRODUCES BONDAGE.
