Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

November 14 - Evening

"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one
who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning
to a different gospel— which is really no gospel at all.
Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion
and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we
or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than
the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse!"

- Galatians 1:6-8

A Different Gospel is Not the Gospel    

It appears that Paul’s letter to the Galatians was written around 48 AD right before or right after the Jerusalem Council (Acts 15). It appears that Paul was writing to the churches he had started in southern Galatia such as Lystra, Derbe, Iconium, etc. The problem in the Galatian churches came from the teaching of Jews, most likely under the influence of the Jerusalem culture, who presented a form of Christianity with a salvation that included Jesus, but which also required obedience to Jewish rituals such as circumcision and Jewish laws such as the dietary code. In fact, these Judaizers presented a “gospel” that demanded obedience to these rituals and laws for salvation and for continued growth in Christianity.

Paul draws attention to this issue and presents it as a very major problem. He calls this Jewish presentation of the Gospel “a different gospel,” and “really no gospel at all.” Any alterations or additions to the message of faith in Jesus Christ as the means of salvation were a perverted gospel that would only be preached by people who were trying to “throw you into confusion.”

“a different gospel— which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ."         
- Galatians 1:7

It is understandable that the Jews would feel compelled to link the Gospel of Jesus with the laws
and rituals of Moses just like the Greeks in Corinth tried to view the Gospel of Jesus through the
eyes of Greek philosophy. But, the Gospel of Jesus does not mix with religious laws or Greek philosophy. If the truth of the Gospel is mixed with other things it “is really no gospel at all.”

In very harsh terms Paul says that anyone “should preach a gospel other than the one we preached…let them be under God’s curse.

  Christian Quote from Church History

""The trouble with some of
us is that we have been inoculated with small doses of Christianity which keep us from catching the real thing." 
- Leslie Weatherhead

Something to Ponder??

In 1054 the Eastern Church (Greek) split from the Western Church (Latin, or Roman). Then in the 1500’s the Western Church split into two groups: the Latin (Roman) and the Protestors ( or, Protestants).

Paraklesis (Gr) - Exhortatiion (Eng) - the Greek word paraklesis is translated as "comfort" and "consolation." Paraklesis refers to a word of encouragement intented to strengthen the faith of a believer. (1 Timothy 4:13, Acts 13:15; Romans 15:4,5; Philippians 2:1; Hebrews 12:5; 13:22)


It is suggested by may scholars that portions of some of the first Christian songs from the days of the New Testament are recorded by Paul when he quotes from thes songs. Some examplse of early church lyrics from 50-60 AD are found in
Philippians 2:6-11
Ehesiasn 5:14
1 Timothy 3:16
2 Timothy 2:11-13

Pliny described the Christians he had on trial around the year 110 AD to Emperor Trajan in a letter he sent to Rome. Pliny said that meet early in the morning to "chant a song to Christ as if to a god."

(Pliny's letter and Trajan's reply here.)

Do I at times misrepresent the Gospel by making it complicated?
Do I add things to the gospel?
I will present the gospel without any attachments to people.

Nehemiah's Wall in Jerusalem 445 BC

Inside the a gate house in a wall built by Solomon on the Ophel, the rise between the City of David, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem. The construction style matches Solomons other building projects at Megiddo, Beersheba, Gezer, etc. The jars were the largest ever found in Jerusalem and some had the royal seal showing they were government property and held grain used for government provision of food for the royal house.
