No Other Gospel

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called(A) you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel(B) which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion(C) and are trying to pervert(D) the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you,(E) let them be under God’s curse!(F) As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted,(G) let them be under God’s curse!

10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people?(H) If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.

No Other Gospel

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

10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying (I)to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a (J)servant[a] of Christ.

  1. Galatians 1:10 For the contextual rendering of the Greek word doulos, see Preface

One Gospel

I am shocked over how quickly you have strayed away from the Anointed One who called you to himself by his loving mercy. I’m frankly astounded that you now embrace a distorted gospel! That is a fake “gospel” that is simply not true. There is only one gospel—the gospel of the Messiah! Yet you have allowed those who mingle law with grace to confuse you with lies.

Anyone who comes to you with a different message than the grace gospel that you have received will have the curse of God come upon them! For even if we or an angel appeared before you, to give you a different gospel than what we have already proclaimed, God’s curse will be upon them.

I will make it clear: Anyone, no matter who they are, that brings you a different gospel than the grace gospel that you have received, let them be condemned and cursed!

10 I’m obviously not trying to flatter you or water down my message to be popular with men, but my supreme passion is to please God. For if all I attempt to do is please people, I would not be the true servant of the Messiah.
