Galatians 5:7-10

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 7 You were running well; who hindered you that you should not obey the truth?

 8 This persuasion does not come from him [God] who called you.

 9 A little leaven [fleshly rituals] leavens [spreads through] the whole lump. [If you only sit in humble silence and wait on God's commands, to then obey them, there is no occasion for pride; but if you decide to perform some work, believing it will please God, that gives rise to pride. The pride turns into self-righteousness, believing you are religious and pleasing to God. Dead works, (those not commanded by God), leave you without the heart and soul purifying grace of God, leaving you in your sinful nature, walking in the flesh. Those claiming to be religious while still sinning are hypocritesthe yeast of the Pharisees. From the word of the Lord within: "The hypocrite may talk of faith and do evil. Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. Truly these people call on me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand. The enemy is in all of Christendom." God must be worshiped in Spirit and Truth, and Christianity's worship is just heathenish rituals, (communion/eucharist, sprinkling infants, passing the plate for money, will-worship according to a planned agenda, group prayer, group singing, etc.), that only create an illusion of being religious; but the illusion is hypocrisy that has leavened the whole lump of Christianity.]

 10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that none of you will be of a different persuasion from me; but he who troubles you will bear the Lord's judgment, whoever he is.
