Galatians Part 1: Freedom or Bondage

Galatians 5:1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. (ESV)

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. (KJV)

What has Christ set us free from?

What bondage was Paul referring to, that those in Galatia should not submit to again ? Who was Paul talking to and why? What is the context of the surrounding verses AND chapters?

What do the next two verses say?

Galatians 5:2-3 2Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3I testify again to every man who gets circumcised that he is bound to keep the whole law.

Circumcision is the topic of discussion for a very good reason. There were some in Galatia who were coerced into believing that if they got circumcised in the flesh, they would then be justified in the eyes of God. They “thought” they could then go about their lives as they used to, without worrying about being justified before God Almighty.

Now, read the next verse out loud ~

Galatians 5:4 You are severed from Christ, you who would be’ justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.

There is nothing new here that Paul doesn’t say a dozen or more times in most of his letters; we are not ‘justified’ by works of the Law. This is not a new doctrine; the Law doesn’t justify, it never has and it never will. The Law of God given through Moses is the Creators’ Instructions in righteous behavior, it’s not instructions in justification (please click this link and read ‘Justification vs. Righteousness‘ to understand the difference between the two).

The believers in Galatia were duped into believing that the way to be justified was to get circumcised. They were “trying to be “justified” before God by their own works;you who would bejustified

The disconnect is this: because Paul chastised thosbelievers who “tried to be justified” by keeping the Law, we have assumed he’s telling “everyone, everywhere” that keeping the Law is by default “trying to be justified”; this is a ‘Straw-man argument’, and a false assumption by mainstream theology.

Paul is railing against the ‘Circumcision Party’ and their “salvation/justification by circumcision” doctrine. This Party is mentioned in ‘Acts’ and in some of Paul’s letters ~

Acts 15:1 And certain men came down from Judea and taught the brethren, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.”

They taught unscriptural dogma, that in order to be saved one had to get circumcised. The Torah/Law of Moses, NEVER states, teaches, or proclaims “salvation/justification” by circumcision (or any work of the Law); that is manmade doctrine. The ‘Circumcision Party’ was only interested in keeping up appearances, the outward “boasting” that man could see. Paul reminded the Galatians of this in the next chapter ~

Galatians 6:12-13 12As many as desire to make a good showing in the flesh, ‘these’ would compel you to be circumcised, only that ‘they’ may not suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. 13For not even those who are circumcised keep the law, but ‘they’ desire to have you circumcised that ‘they’ may boast in your flesh.

Those of the ‘Circumcision Party’ were not following the Law of God given through Moses themselves, as Paul stated. They taught that the ONLY way to achieve justification/salvation was through circumcision, which is a man-made, unscriptural doctrine.

Again, the Law of God given through Moses does not teach this! In fact, the command of circumcision doesn’t even originate in the Law of Moses, it was given way before that, to Abraham.

The command of Circumcision was never given to justify nor to save; it was given as a sign of the everlasting Covenant that God made with Abraham and his seed.

What does the text say?

Genesis 17:10-13 This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your offspring after you: Every male among you shall be circumcised. You shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a “sign” of the covenant between me and you. He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised. Every male throughout your generations, whether born in your house or bought with your money from any foreigner who is not of your offspring, both he who is born in your house and he who is bought with your money, shall surely be circumcised. So shall my covenant be in your flesh an “everlasting” covenant. [‘reaffirmed’ in Leviticus 12:3]

Just like with the Pharisees and Sadducees that Jesus railed against for regarding mans laws/traditions over God’s Law (Mark 7:9), Paul was doing the same thing here. He was railing against the man-made dogma of ‘justification by works’.

The CRITICAL point that is never considered is ‘context‘. How did Paul come to make this statement of Galatians 5:1? What was Paul’s thought process that led up to the point that he made in this verse?

Mainstream theology would have us believe that Paul was scolding the Galatians because they are ‘turning back again’ to the Law of Moses, and thereby returning to the ‘yoke of slavery of the Law once more’.

That is a HUGE error of interpretation, and found to be impossible if one just reads the prior chapter.

For context, let’s read the verses that lead up to chapter 5:1.

What does the text say?

Galatians 4:8-9 8Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods. 9But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?

In no way can this be referring to the Law of God given through Moses for two very simple reasons:

  1. Verse 8 distinctly states “Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods”.
    • Before Paul brought the good news to those Galatians, they were pagans worshiping false gods, to which Paul stated they were “enslaved to”. They ‘never’ knew the Law of God, much less who Moses was. It was impossible for them to “turn back again” to something they never knew.
  2. Verse 9 tells us the Galatians were returning to “weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?”.
    • In the Greek the word ‘weak’ is G772 ἀσθενῆ/asthenē; and ‘worthless’ is G4434 πτωχὰ/ ptōcha; and ‘elementary principles’ is G4747 στοιχεῖα/stoicheia. Thayer’s Greek Lexicon states these words to mean: a.) asthenē – without strength, feeble, infirm; b.) ptōcha – to cower(ardly) down, roving about in wretchedness, afflicted, lowly; c.) stoicheia – of the heavenly bodies, because times and seasons, and so sacred seasons, were regulated by the course of the sun and moon; and/or the elements, rudiments, primary and fundamental principles.
    • Paul blatantly stated that those people throughout Galatia were returning to the slavery of their feeble, wretched and afflicted ways that they observed before they knew the one true God. They were observing rudimentary principles of the world, not principles of God. How anyone could possibly believe, much less preach, that the ways and principles of God Almighty could ever be weak, cowardly, wretched, and afflicted is beyond me.

As Paul stated in verses 8 & 9, those Galatians were wanting to return to the ‘yolk of slavery‘ that they were under before they knew the one true God. The Galatians thought that they “would be” justified’ now, by their own works of the flesh. They somehow reasoned then, that they could go back to their old ways of man-made gods (sin) and pagan rituals (sin) which they formerly observed, now that they were circumcised.

Paul was chastising them for believing this, and for returning to the slavery of their sinful pagan ways, now that they thought they were justified/acquitted by getting circumcised. The “yolk of slavery” of Galatians 5:1 is thatyolk of slaveryfrom verses 8 & 9, in chapter 4. The Galatians were ‘returning’ to their sin now that they thought they were justified. ‘Sin‘ is the slavery/bondage Paul constantly warns us not to let ourselves go back under the dominion of; please click this link and read, ‘Freed from the law of Sin and Death‘.

Once again, the disconnect: because Paul chastised some believers for “trying to be/ who would be justified” by keeping the Law, we have assumed that Paul is telling everyone, everywhere that ‘keeping the Law’ is by default “trying to be justified”. That assumption is utterly false. The Law is ‘Instructions in Righteousness’, not ‘instructions in justification’; again, please read ‘Justification vs. Righteousness‘ to understand the difference.

It’s a HUGE understatement to say that the apostle Paul can be misunderstood. Galatians 5:1 is one of ‘the’ most misunderstood verses in the entire bible because it’s plucked out of the context of the surrounding verses.

The two BIG stumbling blocks that you have to get past are two of the biggest errors in the mainstream theological system ~

  • The First Big Error: “The Law of Moses is bondage and slavery”.
  • The Second Big Error: “Before Christ, the Israelites were saved/justified by obeying the Law of Moses”.

We have been taught incorrectly for generations, as I will let the Scriptures prove.

We will go over the 1st Big Error in this study, and cover the 2nd error in the next one.

Almost every mainstream Christian denomination assumes that Paul was telling the Galatians that “the Law of God given through Moses” is bondage and slavery, but is that what the verses actually say? These are all errors of biased interpretation, eisegesis, handed down from our fore-fathers. Eisegesis is the process of interpreting a text or portion of text in such a way that the process introduces one’s own presuppositions, agendas, or biases into and onto the text.

What Paul stated over and over and over again in his letters, was that we were ‘enslaved to sin’, and ‘don’t be a slave to sin again’; Again, please click this link and read, “Free from the Law of Sin and Death“.

What does the text say?

Romans 6:6 We know that ‘our old self was crucified with him’ in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin.

Romans 6:16 16Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?

This is not new doctrine. Paul learned this from his Master, Jesus ~

John 8:34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin.”

What is sin?

1 John 3:4 Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.

Back to Paul ~

Romans 6:17-19 17But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, 18and, having been “set free from sin”, have become slaves of righteousness. 19I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, “so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.

Paul states in v.19 directly above, that we were ‘lawless’, not obeying God’s Law, when we were in slavery to sin. He’s reminding us, and defining for us what condition we were in before we were ‘set free from our slavery to sin’ by the redeeming blood of Jesus, and before we ‘crucified our flesh with Christ’. At that time we were under the dominion of sin, disobedient to the Law, unrighteous and unsanctified.

Romans 6:22 But now that you have been “set free from sin” and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life.

But now, Hallelu Yah, we have been “redeemed”, our freedom from the ‘dominion of sin’ has been purchased. Now we can be forgiven of those past sins and reconciled to the Father, now able to walk in His ways without being condemned for those prior sins.

Take notice that Paul stated twice within 5 verses that we “have been set free from sin”; not set free from the Law of Moses, as we are errantly taught.

Did the Prodigal Son, after he repented and was forgiven, return to his ‘self-sovereign’ and ‘wicked’ lifestyle once he was reconciled with his father? Did he tell himself, “Now that my Father has forgiven me, I can go back to my own ways and do what’s right in my own eyes and my Father will be okay with that”? Or did he recognize his sin, repent, and honor his father by seeking forgiveness and submission to his Father?

As he stated in many of his letters, Paul is reiterating to those in Galatia, that trying to keep the Law for “justification” is futile. Getting circumcised ‘in order to seek justification separates you from the grace, mercy and love God has shown us through the Messiah. We don’t obey our God to be justified in His sight; we obey Him because He is God! We are His bond-servants, grateful, faithful and wanting to show our love by behaving righteously as the Master Jesus did (again, please read “Justification vs. Righteousness“).

This error of not understanding the difference of ‘Justification vs. Righteousness’ and ‘Faith vs. Law’ is precisely why Paul expounded to the Galatians (and us) with the allegory in chapter 4. Just like Abraham trying to make God’s ‘promise’ happen by his own works of the flesh, the Galatians thought that they would be “justified” by their own works of the flesh ~

Galatians 4:21-25 21Tell me, you who desire to be under the law [please click this link and read ‘Subject to the Power of the Law‘], do you not listen to the law? 22For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by a slave woman and one by a free woman. 23But the son of the slave was born according to the flesh, while the son of the free woman was born through promise. 24Now this may be interpreted allegorically: these women are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery; she is Hagar. 25Now Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia; she corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children.

Contrary to what we have been taught, this is not comparing the ‘Old’ and ‘New’ covenants. Paul’s comparing the “Covenant at Sinai with Israel” vs. the “Covenant of Promise with Abraham”; he’s comparing Hagar vs. Sarah; comparing Ishmael, the son of the slave vs. Isaac, the son of the free woman; comparing work of the flesh vs. faith and trust.

This is an allegory. By the words of his own mouth Paul told us it’s an allegory. An allegory is “a figurative sentence or discourse, in which the principal subject is described by another subject resembling it in its properties and circumstances; a continued metaphor” (Webster’s Dictionary 1828).

It is a metaphor; i.e. not literal.

Paul is telling us, in a metaphor, that “those who desire to be justified by the Law are just like Hagar, the slave woman. The Galatians are unable to be heirs of the promise because they are seeking to be justified by their own works just like Abraham did with Hagar. Paul is telling us ‘if you seek ‘justification’ through the Law the result is bondage because you can’t satisfy it for ‘justification. It’s not because the Law itself is bondage, but because we have failed to keep it, which is sinning; Sin is the bondage.

The Law cannot redeem you, it cannot save you and it cannot justify you, because it was not designed to. The Law given at Sinai did not redeem, save or justify the children of Israel.

1.) ‘First they were redeemed/delivered/saved out slavery in Egypt by faith and trust in God ~

Exodus 6:6 Say therefore to the people of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from slavery to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great acts of judgment.

Micah 6:4 “For I brought you up from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.”

2.) ‘Then they went to get the Law, the instructions, at Sinai. The word Law is ‘Torah’ in Hebrew, and in Hebrew the word ‘Torah’ means ‘instructions’.

If you seek to be justified/acquitted before God by the works of the Law you are cursed because you fail(ed) to obey it. Then, in your ‘self-justified’ failure to obey the Law, which is sin, you remain in bondage/slavery to your sin, having forfeited the mercy and grace offered by God to justify you by the blood of the Lamb. This is what Paul is saying about those in ‘his’ current Jerusalem because most of them did not believe in the redemption of Messiah, and only trusted in their own works.

We are being lied to by mainstream theology. The Law is not bondage or slavery; Sin is.

What does the Word of God tell us the Law is?

What does the text say?

Deuteronomy 6:25 And it will be righteousness for us, if we are careful to do all this commandment before the LORD our God, as he has commanded us.’

Psalm 19:7-11 7The law of the LORD is “perfect”, reviving the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; 8the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; 9the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever, the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. 10More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. 11Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

Psalm 119:42-44 42And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, for I wait for Your ordinances. 43So I will keep Your law continually, forever and ever. 44And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Your precepts.

Psalm 119:142 Thy righteousness is an ‘everlasting’ righteousness, and thy law is truth.

Psalm 119:160 The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures ‘forever’.

Psalm 119:172 Let my tongue sing of thy word; For all thy commandments are righteousness.

John 17:17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.

Romans 7:12 So the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.

Is God a liar?

Are David, Jesus and Paul all liars?

Paul was railing against a works-based justification, that’s all. The Law doesn’t justify, it never has; we are justified/acquitted by our faith in the work of the Messiah.

Final thought: Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law | Paul – Romans 3:31. Please click this link and read, ‘Paul Commands Us to Uphold the Law‘ for a complete study of this verse.

    1. JH,

      Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on this study.

      I understand that there are differing opinions of what Paul may or may not have meant, when he wrote “work/s of the law” in ‘Romans’ and ‘Galatians’. This particular study is not focused on that particular phrase of Paul’s.

      That being said, in Romans 2:15 Paul told us that those who do what the law requires show “the work of the law” is written on their heart, and he’ referring to the Law of God given through Moses.

      In Galatians 3:10, the main verse of this study, Paul told us in the same sentence what he meant, clarifying for us his source by stating, “for it is written”, referring specifically to the Law/Torah.

      *For as many are of the “works of the law” are under a curse; “for it is written”, Cursed be everyone who does not abide by ‘ALL’ things “written in the Book of the Law”, and do them.* | Galatians 3:10

      Paul told us that the curse he’s referring to, regarding those that are of the “works of the law” is “written” somewhere, and it is “written in the Book of the Law”, which is a quote of Deuteronomy 27:26. So, according to Paul, the reason they are under the curse is because they did not abide-in/persevere-in ‘ALL’ of the Book of the Law.

      Numerous times, before and after Galatians 3:10, the primary “work” that Paul chastised those living in Galatia referred to the law of circumcision (2:3,12, 5:2,6,11, 6:12,13,15) which is not a ‘Jewish/Talmudic tradition’, but is “written in the Book of the Law”. Some in Galatia were trying to be justified by their circumcision (5:4). They also went back to the ‘slavery’ of their pagan lifestyle (5:1 & 4:8,9) and did “not abide by ALL things written in the Book of the Law”. They thought that relying on the circumcision for “justification” was somehow correct doctrine, and all that they needed to do. They thought they didn’t need to keep all of the Torah, and now that they were circumcised, they could go back to their former lawless ways without any ramifications. Paul explains this is the deceit of the ‘circumcision party’, who upheld the outward flaunting of circumcision but did not ‘abide in all of the Law’ themselves (6:13).

      The main point of this study is to show that the mainstream Christian system has misinterpreted Paul’s context by claiming he taught that the Law/Torah itself is a curse. What Paul actually said was, the person that does not keep the Torah of Yah will suffer ‘the curses’ listed in the Law/Torah; conversely then, the one who keeps and guards the Torah is granted ‘the blessings’. The Law is not the curse, and it is not the blessing.

      Paul is not telling us that the Law is a curse, he’s telling us that the Law is not of faith (verse 11). Most of ‘Galatians’ is Paul explaining this concept; the relationship of Law and Faith, which is detailed in this study.

    1. Dear K:

      Thanks for taking the time to read this study.

      Not knowing anything about your background, I hope it’s safe to assume you are coming from a mainstream Christian upbringing… the use of the word “ceremonial” is why think this may be correct. The ‘Mainstream Theological System’ thinks, believes and teaches that all “ceremonial” laws (except tithing) are abolished, but somehow the “moral” laws are still valid…?… However, there is not one verse to back up that dogma, and there is never, ever once stated in the entirety of the Word of God the terms ‘ceremonial’ or ‘moral’ in reference to the Law of God.

      Malachi 3:6 “I am Yahweh, I change not”. God does not change; His Instructions/Laws do not change.

      That being said, right now, those who are in covenant with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob need to walk in all His ways. However, we are in ‘the dispersion’ and there is only so much that we “can” do. When the southern kingdom of Judah went into dispersion/captivity in Babylon, those children of Yah could not physically keep all of the commands regarding Temple service because the Temple and the Levitical priesthood were not available. They could “not” keep those commands, but that didn’t mean the Laws were no longer valid. Just like them, we do not have available to us the capability to perform many of the Laws/Instructions of the Creator; in dispersion we “can’t” keep some them.

      Some commands are for woman, so men “can’t” keep those. Some laws are for farmers, so non-farmers “can’t” keep those…

      “ALL” of God’s Commands, Statutes and Right Rulings are valid and in authority; but in dispersion, with no Temple and no organized Levitical Priesthood to oversee the service, we “can’t” keep those commands. It’s just not physically possible.

      When Yeshua/Jesus comes back, and is ruling and reigning in Jerusalem “all” of the Laws of God given through Moses will be obeyed and kept, and the Scriptures bear this out…

      “…For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” | Isaiah 2:3b; see Isaiah 2:2-5.
      *This is the Law of God given through Moses prophesied to be taught in the future Messianic Millennial reign to all of the nations.

      “the Levitical priests shall never lack a man in my presence to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings, and to make sacrifices forever.” | Jeremiah 33:18; see Jer. 33:14-26.
      *These Levitical prophecies take place during the future Messianic Millennial Reign.

      “My servant David shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd. They shall walk in my rules and be careful to obey my statutes. | Ezekiel 37:24; see Ezekiel 37:21-28.
      *Again, this is Mosaic Law observance in the future Messianic Millennial Reign. See also Ezekiel 40:38 – 46:14 for more Millennial Reign observances of the Law of Moses.

      “Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths” | Zechariah 14:16.
      *Yet again, Gods Law given through Moses, specifically His Feast keeping Law, observed in the future Messianic Millennial Reign. See also ALL of chapter 14 of Zechariah.

      The Law of God given through Moses was not abolished (as the Mainstream Christian System teaches) for a time and then will magically become un-abolished when Jesus returns; that is complete and utter nonsense, we have been lied to.

      As we walk out the Instructions/Laws of the Almighty in the dispersion, without our King present to guide and instruct us personally, we can only do the best we can by keeping those commands and right rulings that are within our ability to keep; but we must guard them “all”, just the same.

      He wants to know if it’s within our heart to obey Him, and since He gave His life and spilled His blood so that we could have the opportunity to escape the slavery and bondage of sin, shouldn’t we ‘want’ to obey Him, our Master and King?

      “The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.” | Psalm 119:160

      I hope these studies help you in your walk; may God bless you as you study His Word.

      1. From scripture the sacrifice system is no more since Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice. That’s why there’s no need for need to sacrifice for sin offerings. That’s in Hebrews.

        Like

      2. Dear K:

        Which verses in the Word of God state, “the sacrifice system is no more”…? There are none. We have been misled and lied to by mainstream theology.

        Acts 21 has Paul himself participating in the Nazarite vow, which requires temple offerings and sacrifices; also verse 24 proves Paul kept the entire Law of Moses his entire life, even post resurrection.

        Jesus is a High Priest in “heaven” not on earth, Hebrews 8:4. His Priesthood in heaven has no bearing or affect on the earthly Priesthood. One is a type and shadow of the other, it has always been that way; since the very first earthly temple was made, it was built in the same manner as the heavenly one. In the very next verse the writer of Hebrews states there are (present tense in the Greek) priests who offer gifts according to the Law (again present tense in the Greek).

        There will be Temple service overseen by Levitical priests, as well as, animal sacrifices in the millennial kingdom when Jesus returns, all according to the standards laid down in the Law of Moses; Ezekiel 44:15 & 45:16-25.

        The Law of God, including Levitical temple service has not been abolished nor replaced; we simply can’t do it right now because we do not live in the land, there is no temple, nor is there an organized Levitical body to oversee the services.

        When Jesus returns as King he will insure the prophesies of Ezekiel take place. Jesus is the ‘prince’ of Ezekiel 45:16.

        Lastly, the writer of Hebrews clarified and confirmed that not only is the Law of Moses valid and in authority, but so is the earthly Priesthood of Levi, when that writer stated that ‘the resurrected Jesus’ would not be a priest on earth because ‘Moses’ said nothing of the tribe of Judah being allowed that position. The writer of Hebrews unequivocally stated that it is the Law of Moses which dictates how and why Jesus is not an earthly Priest, therefore the Law of Moses ‘must’ be a current and valid Law.

        The mainstream theological dogma that claims any part of the Law of God has been cast aside, done away with or abolished is blasphemy and a complete misinterpretation/misunderstanding of Paul. I humbly request that you read all of my studies on Paul and then get back to me with any questions you may have after that.

        Respectfully,
