READ GALATIANS 6:11-13
POPULAR OR AUTHENTIC CHRISTIANITY
1. It sets aside the Cross of Christ. Is says that justification by faith alone is just a myth, and pushes instead for a legalistic version of moralistic “godliness” upon every person.
2. It sets aside being “born again”. New birth. New Creation. Being born again is an instantaneous thing. It doesn’t take place over steps and stages. It isn’t a ceremony, it isn’t something external, it is the very act of creation by God where he takes a sinner and makes him or her brand new in the Lord Jesus Christ.
QUESTIONS TO REFLECT ON:
- Am I convinced that the law, as perfect as it is, can only lead me to live out of the flesh and not out of the Spirit?
2. If I take an honest assessment of myself, how concerned am I with external appearances.
