I am just so blown away that this is so hard to get. I am beginng to think if you dont have exterior plumbing you wont understand what Galatians is all about.
I am going to try to make this clear again.
Ga 2:1 Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.
Paul went to Jerusalem.
Ga 2:3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised:
Ga 2:4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage
They wanted Titus and those like him to be circumsised. Paul said it was not required.
Ac 15:1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.
Ac 15:2 When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question.
Ok so we have Acts and Galatians going together so far.
Ga 2:7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
Ga 2:11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.
Ga 2:12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
Ok let me break this down the Gentiles where being saved and filled with the spirit left and right. Peter and James being Jews would while around gentiles be all smiling and happy about this and when around the Jews would say "oh they are unclean gentiles and not of the circumcision of the law." two faced it was wrong and Paul was willing to go all the way to Jerusalem to argue it. And he DID Peter backed down and stood with Paul in Jerusalem on this issue. ACTS CHAPTER 15.
Now somebody came to the Galatians preaching that they had to under go this surgery as full grown men and be circumcised.
Paul was fufilling the will of the elders and spreading the message decided on in Jerusalem about circumcision. And did so to the very end of this letter.
Ga 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
Now I dont see any hidden message about divine females there is none it is a simple message dont let any one tell you to cut the end of your _ _ _ _ _ to be saved. There is nothing female about that. The Laws of Moses require it as a sign of a promise made to Abraham. We are not under that law.
Using the Galatians to decieve people into believing something that is not true is indeed a sin.
And Paul had this warning you might have missed.
Ga 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Ga 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
I want you to note carfully HE DID SAY ANGEL and HE DID SAY GOSPEL the whole thing.
I keep sending this warning as did Paul but I dont think I am being heard any more than he was.
