What is the book of Galatians about, and what doctrines does it address? We recently put questions like these to students at an Evangelical Bible college, and their answers reveal once again that Christians themselves need to recover Scripture. On this edition of the program, the hosts interact with these on-the-street interviews and explain why Paul's letter to the Galatians is such a crucially important book to read and think through. The White Horse Inn: know what you believe, and why you believe it!

    Brothers, at minute 45 one of the speakers said we as Christians are bound to the law written on stone. Really? Could someone explain the thinking of that statement? God Bless

    Paul. I am not agreeing or disagreeing with his statement I am just helping clarify what he said. The quote was roughly this "we are bound to the moral law which God has written on the heart of every person and revealed on two stone tablets on mt. sinai". He is saying our consciences are bound by the law. He is not saying our salvation is bound by the law as the questions is implying. What the law was unable to do which is to save us from sin Christ did for us but the law is still condemning us because we do not keep it, and he is using the term "bound" meaning that. He is pointing out that there is extra biblical laws written by man attempting to bind people's liberty in Christ where the Bible makes no such declaration. The context was the group mentioning groups of christians now days who make up the human law that we should not drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. That is an extra biblical law attempting to bind a persons conscience where God is not binding a persons conscience. INstead of being based on the Gospel of Christ, people are stapling on an extra law to the gospel which in effect fatally damages the gospel itself. THey went on to point out, many people today are saying to not send your children to a christian school you are in sin or you must homeschool or you are in sin, this destroys the gospel by burying it in seemingly good things that hide the fact we are saved by faith. Which is the whole point of the book of Galatians which of course was the entire topic the talked about. Justified by faith through grace.
