Galatians: Don’t Be Circumcised!
As Paul continues to speak into grace and the Law, he tackles an important issue in the earliest worshipping communities: circumcision. “Don’t be circumcised!” Paul says, “be on your guard!” A little legalism works its way through the whole batch of dough, and those who place themselves under some of the Law are obligated to follow the entire Law. They have fallen from grace, and become alienated from Christ. But it’s for freedom that Christ has set us free!
