Bible: Galatians 1:6-10
Occasion of the Letter
1:6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one 1 who called you by the grace of Christ 2 and are following 3 a different 4 gospel – 1:7 not that there really is another gospel, 5 but 6 there are some who are disturbing you and wanting 7 to distort the gospel of Christ. 1:8 But even if we (or an angel from heaven) should preach 8 a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, 9 let him be condemned to hell! 10 1:9 As we have said before, and now I say again, if any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, let him be condemned to hell! 11 1:10 Am I now trying to gain the approval of people, 12 or of God? Or am I trying to please people? 13 If I were still trying to please 14 people, 15 I would not be a slave 16 of Christ!
