What if our view is exactly opposite to the way we were taught? And here we are with all the zeal and enthusiasm of a new convert teaching something that is not only wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth. That seems unlikely. But this is what happened at Galatia. How did it happen? How could it happen? And if it happens that easily, perhaps it accounts for the variations in religious responses we get.Everyone will tell you Galatians is about Law and Grace, and it argues on this subject, but the real issue is: who are the ones with whom we enjoy fellowship. The believer community is a place of joy and gladness, the slaying of oxen and killing of sheep. If we do not understand what this means, then we have never been to an Australian barbeque where everyone gathers to have a pleasant time with friends. Who are the people with whom we are in harmony and do not have belief issues? These are the ones with whom we enjoy fellowship.Can two walk together unless they are agreed? The answer to this is- no they cannot. And if they are at opposite ends of the argument, then there is likely to be hostile feelings. And that really makes the feasting fall flat. It is like a rain storm in the midst of the cooking effort. Everyone wants to go home. How does it get so far, to borrow an expression from the movies? We are going to find the answer.
