WHEN IS IT RIGHT TO PRONOUNCE A CURSE? Gal 1:6-9

6 I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; 7 which is {really} not another; only there are some who are disturbing you, and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed. NAS

INTRODUCTION:

Cursing should not be part of a Christians’ lifestyle. What about pronouncing a curse on someone or something? We would probably say a Christian should not pronounce a curse either.

In this text Paul pronounces a curse on a false gospel, and the presenters of it. You and I can learn from Paul to do the same. Notice when Paul pronounced a curse and when we should do the same.

Introduction:

JUDAIZERS [joo dee EYE zurs] -- early converts to Christianity who tried to force believers from non-Jewish backgrounds to adopt Jewish customs as a condition of salvation. Evidence of this movement within the early church first emerged about A.D. 49 AD, when "certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, ’Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved’" (Acts 15:1 (quickview) ).

Acts 15:1 (quickview)  And certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, "Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved." NKJV

Acts 15:5 (quickview)  But some of the sect of the Pharisees who believed rose up, saying, "It is necessary to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses." NKJV

Acts 15:24 (quickview)  Since we have heard that some who went out from us have troubled you with words, unsettling your souls, saying, ’You must be circumcised and keep the law’--to whom we gave no such commandment– NKJV
