  1. Bewitched! Galatians 3:1-5

  2. Bewitched! Galatians 3:1-5 Preface: A Look At The Law

  3. The World Today: • Post Modern • No Absolute Truth

  4. The World Today: • Moral Relativism • No Authority – No Standard

  5. The World Today: • Personal Freedom • No Rules

  6. The World Today: • Humanistic Atheism • No Judge

  7. The World Today: • No Consequences • No Accountability • You’re In Charge

  8. However:We Need To Tell People… • There IS Truth! • There IS An Authority! • There ARE Rules!

  9. However:We Need To Tell People… • There IS A Judge: • And every single one of us will answer to Him!

  10. The Christian Message Is In Direct Contradiction To The Reigning World Philosophy

  11. Salvation Is By Faith Alone! • Not By Works • Not By Ceremonies • Not By Moral Deeds

  12. If That Is True… Then Why The Law?

  13. To Develop A Great Expectation…

  14. For A Redeemer!

  15. And Lead Us To Repentance!

  16. Three Perspectives Of The Law… Past – Future - Present

  17. The Past: Galatians 3:19

  18. Abrahamic Covenant: • A Blessing • The Promise Of Salvation To Abraham And His Descendants • Did Not Address The Sinfulness of Man

  19. Mosaic Covenant: • Brought The Knowledge Of Our Sinfulness • Helps Us Understand The Cross

  20. Because Of The Mosaic Covenant: • We Understand Our Utter Sinfulness • We See We Can’t Meet God”s Standard

  21. Because Of The Mosaic Covenant: • We Know We Can’t Fix Ourselves • We See We Are In Need Of A Redeemer

  22. The Apex Of The Mosaic Covenant Is The Cross… • Christ satisfied the Law Completely – (Both Moral And Ceremonial Law) • He Became Accursed For Us – (Sacrificial Law)

  23. The Law In View Of The Future: It Is Temporary!

  24. The Law Has An End • The Promise To Abraham Is Eternal • The New Covenant Replaces The Mosaic

  25. Hebrews 7:12 • Change In The Priesthood – • Necessitates A Change In The Law • No Ceremonies • No Sacrifices

  26. The Law In View Of The Present • It Instructs Us – (O.T. and N.T.) • It Teaches Us That We Are Sinful • The Law Shuts Us All Up Before God

  27. The Law In View Of The Present • We Can’t Obey It Because We’re Blind • It’s Hard To Hit A Target You Can’t See

  28. My disobedience is my unwitting blindness combined with my willful rebellion

  29. Galatians 3:1-5 Faith? Works?

  30. Galatians 3:1-5 • Paul Is Worried About Their Defection • The Galatians were Robbing Themselves Of The Blessings of God • They Were Robbing The World Of A Right View Of Salvation

  31. Galatians 3:1-5 • Even Though Saved By Faith, They Decided To Live By Works (Paul’s Not Suggesting That They Lost Their Salvation) • Those They Invited To The Kingdom Would Live By Works Also

  32. Grace To: Calvary To: Freedom To: Grace To: Law Ceremony Bondage Works They Turned From:

  33. Paul Defends The Doctrine Of Justification By Faith In Chapters 3 & 4 In Verses 1-5 Paul Appeals To Their Personal Experience

  34. Paul Pinpoints Their Experience In 3 Ways: • Their Experience With Christ • Their Experience With The Spirit • Their Experience With God The Father • They Should Know Better!

  35. Verse 1: Foolish Galatians! The Fool

  36. Charlie Brown Would Call Them, “BLOCKHEADS!”

  37. Verse 1: • Paul’s Accusing Them Of Intellectual Laziness • They’re Not Morons • They’re Not Thinking Things Through!

  38. Luke 24:25: The Road To Emmaus

  39. Verse 1: • Christianity Is Not An Emotional Gig… • It Is An Intellectual Pursuit • We Are Transformed By What We Know

  40. Verse 1: • We Will experience Emotions • Many Of Them! • But They’re A By-Product Of A Pursuit Of The Truth

  41. They’re Experience With Christ Christ Was Clearly And Publicly Proclaimed

  42. Christ: • They Had Received Christ And Were Filled By The Holy Spirit Before Any Judaizer Had Gotten To Them…

  43. Christ: • They Had Changed Hearts • Changed Lives • Seen Signs And Wonders • All Verifying The Truth Of Paul’s Teaching!

  44. “Prographo”

  45. Christ: • Portrayed As Crucified and Resurrected • They Were Convicted And Repented • They Received The Holy Spirit

  46. Christ: • How On Earth Could Works Enter Their Minds As A Means Of Salvation • Are They Saying That Christ Didn’t Need To Die?

  47. Christ: • The Greek Word For “Crucified”, In Verse 1 Describes A Past Historical Event That Has Continuing Results

  48. Christ: • Legalism And Ritual… • Routine And Ceremony… • Religious Hocus Pocus… • Can Not Pick Up Where The Cross Leaves Off

  49. Do You Know Why? • The Cross Never Leaves Off! • It Continues Today And Throughout History • Works Never Pleased God… • They’re Filthy Rags

  50. Their Experience With The Holy Spirit Verses 2-4 Vs. 2 –”This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?”
