Perversion of the Gospel by some – Part 1 –

Galatians 1:6-10I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel;

Paul was “amazed” at what he heard about the situation in the Galatians churches.  He questioned how they could be so “quickly” turning away so soon after their conversion. They had accepted the grace of Christ as the only way to salvation, but they wavered on that principle and bought into a teaching that undermined the truth of the gospel.

Salvation by grace can be attributed only to God’s work.  A requirement of anything more than faith on our part diminishes the truth that God alone can save. There is only one gospel effective for salvation, the gospel of Jesus’ death and resurrection and that a person can not contribute to their salvation. The different kind of gospel taught by the false teachers added requirements to salvation that God did not intend.

Are you sure you have been saved by faith in Jesus alone?
