Let us review:
The purpose of the letters to the churches, and even though they were addressed to"Galatians" they were circulated throughout all of them. They are even written to us today, and the message is timeless.
Galatians was written to refute the Judaizers and to call people back to the true Gospel.
Chapter1: verse8- 9, is his warning against listening to those who preach any gospel other than the one Paul preached
He proceeds to tell them that he received the Gospel from God, and in chapter 2:4, he says that false brethren were unawares brought in.
In chapter 3, he explains the superiority of the Gospel over all others.
Chapter 3:1, he asks the foolish "Who has bewitched you", so they were getting false information from someone, and it would not be from the Apostles.
Chapter 4, verses 8-20 shows his concern for the deceived.
Chapter 5, he preaches the liberty of the Gospel and here once again, he shows why the Law cannot save.
Chapter 6, verses 11-18 he gives his last warning, especially see verse 13, and again in verse 15, he says that Jesus is all that matters.
To conclude, beware, for false teachers want you to think that Christ's death did not make a final atonement for sin, they say that people must obey the Law in order to be saved, they try to find favor with God by observing certain rituals. When told that he was disregarding the Law of Moses, Paul responds by putting the Law in its proper place. He says it shows people how they sin and points them to Christ.
It is obvious to even the most casual reader that following the Law does not save anyone. For instance, not stealing cars will not earn you a good result at the Resurrection. No sleeping with your neighbor's wife will not earn your place in the Kingdom. Keeping 52 Sabbaths a year and the Holy Days will not earn your salvation. If it could, then we would not have needed a Saviour. The gift of salvation is free, and one must accept it. Obedience to God's Law is the product of faith.
Rom 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
Ah, yes....Judaizer, the Catholic excuse for changing the set times and the Law [Daniel 7:25]. The Sabbath, of course, is the only commandment that deals with a specific time and the Festivals are at appointed times also. Sure wouldn't want our religion to look too Jewish....would we? The word Judaizer is not found in scripture but began circulating throughout early writings when the powers that stood wanted all semblance of Jewishness erased from liturgy.
The fact remains....the citizens of Galatia were not Jewish. They were Greco Romans and were being evangelized by Paul. Paul was sent to the Gentiles [Galatians 2:7]. Peter and the other Apostles had been sent to the Israelites [Matthew 10:5-6]. The false brethren were the same folks mentioned in Acts 15:1-2 and circumcision for Gentiles had been dealt with by James in verse 19.
Do you observe the Catholic Sabbath?
