Verse By Verse Through Galatians (1:9)

9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be under a curse! -Galatians 1:9 BSB


By Paul repeating it twice in verses 8 & 9 (see verse 8 and its commentary), shows the seriousness of the warning—believing in another account of Jesus Christ that goes against or contradicts what the Scripture clearly teaches about the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), will put the individual who accepts it under Divine judgment.

Those who believe it and spread the false gospel will get a higher degree of condemnation from God for deceiving others—taking them away from the Lord.

Two examples of false religions (cults) that teach a false gospel and Jesus are the Mormons & Jehovah’s Witnesses.

  1. I’m enjoying your series on Galatians, which is my “Life Book.” I especially am found of Paul’s teachings to hold fast to the true Gospel and not a fictional gospel and that it is by faith that we are saved, not by works.

    1. Thank you, Ward, I appreciate you taking the time to read the Galatians series. I agree with what you said. Holding on to the gospel will keep us spiritually sound and grounded in the truth.
