Commentary in blue: 1 Paul, an apostle (not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead),One does not receive apostleship from any recognition or announcement from mere humans. 2 and all the brethren who are with me, We all need a support structure. To the churches of Galatia: 3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. That's it, hit them with the Gospel right up front. 6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, 7 which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. Paul can't believe that these believers can be led astray so easily. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. That is why any teaching HAS to agree with the Bible. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. WARNING: don't mess with God's Word. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? If someone is making a change in the Gospel, not only do they have to persuade men, but also God. What a tall order. Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. If you are seeking to please the desires of other people, you are not pleasing Christ and you are not serving Him. More verses later. Feel free to add comment.
