Galatians 1:6–12 (Listen)

No Other Gospel

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. 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 accursed.

10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant1 of Christ.

Paul Called by God

11 For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not man’s gospel.2 12 For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

     6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 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. 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.

     10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.(KJV)

1. Thou art the Way; to Thee alone 
From sin and death we flee; 
And he who would the Father seek 
Must seek Him, Lord, by Thee. 

2. Thou art the Truth; Thy Word alone 
True wisdom can impart; 
Thou only canst inform the mind 
And purify the heart. 

3. Thou art the Life; the rending tomb 
Proclaims Thy conquering arm; 
And those who put their trust in Thee 
Nor death nor hell shall harm. 

4. Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life; 
Grant us that Way to know, 
That Truth to keep, that Life to win, 
Whose joys eternal flow.
