Galatians, Chapter One, Lesson Two

THE TRUTH OF GOD            Page 5
V.10 ** (Cont'd.)

** Can you think of another occasion in scripture where Christians were not interested in pleasing men, but rather were committed to proclaiming "The Truth of God"?

The apostles in Jerusalem, before the Sanhedrin, refused to obey their command to not preach in the name of Jesus Christ. cf. Acts 4:18-20, 5:27-29

** As bond-servants of Jesus Christ, should we be at all interested with pleasing men, when "The Truth of God" is at stake?

Absolutely not!

** As the apostle Paul preached the gospel throughout the region of Galatia (to the pleasure of God), what was it that he was saying? Can you think of a passage that clearly delineates the gospel?

1Corinthians 15:1-4 "The Truth of God", the gospel.

1) Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures (V.3) cf. Isaiah 53:4-6
2) He was buried according to the Scriptures (V.4) cf. Isaiah 53:9
3) He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures (V.4) cf. Psalm 16:10,
Matthew 12:40 and 16:21

EXTRICATE

** What is the main danger or threat to someone who is new in their faith in Jesus Christ?

The danger of false doctrine, either about the gospel itself or about life in obedience to the
Word of God. cf. Ephesians 4:14

** Does Satan wish to boldly attack the gospel by saying that it is all wrong and therefore should be thrown out?

No, he will use false teachers to "distort" the truth, and disturb as many people as he can by creating false religious systems that look very much like the true church of Jesus Christ.
