galatians 2, Paul said: I went back to Jerusalem again, this time with Barnabas; and Titus came along too. I went there with definite orders from God to confer with the brothers there about the message I was preaching to the Gentiles. I talked privately to the leaders of the church so that they would all understand just what I had been teaching and, I hoped, agree that it was right. And they did agree; they did not even demand that Titus, my companion, should be circumcised, though he was a Gentile. Even that question wouldn’t have come up except for some so-called “Christians” there false ones, really who came to spy on us and see what freedom we enjoyed in Christ Jesus, as to whether we obeyed the Jewish laws or not. They tried to get us all tied up in their rules, like slaves in chains. But we did not listen to them for a single moment, for we did not want to confuse you into thinking that salvation can be earned by being circumcised and by obeying Jewish laws. You and I are Jews by birth, not mere Gentile sinners, and yet we Jewish Christians know very well that we cannot become right with God by obeying our Jewish laws but only by faith in Jesus Christ to take away our sins. And so we, too, have trusted Jesus Christ, that we might be accepted by God because of faith and not because we have obeyed the Jewish laws. For no one will ever be saved by obeying them.” FRIENDS, FOLLOWING THE JEWISH LAWS WILL NOT GET US INTO HEAVEN. THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN IS THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST AND HIM ALONE! John 10:8-10 “All others who came before me were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them. Yes, I am the Gate. Those who come in by way of the Gate will be saved and will go in and out and find green pastures. The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.
