FROM THE SCHOOLMASTER TO THE SAVIOR"The Law/Faith Hybrid of Bipolar Christianity"

"But if, while we seek to be justified in Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a server of this sin? Certainly not! For if I construct again those things which I tore down, I make myself a violator. For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who lives, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through keeping the law, then Christ died in vain."  -(Galatians 2:17-21)

The Apostle Paul, in these words closing the 2nd chapter of the Book of Galatians, illustrates the core of an issue that was rearing its head at the onset of the growth of The Christian Church in the 1st century, and that continues as stagnant leaven imbedded within The Church to this day: The belief that your efforts as a Christian and on behalf of Christ in some way contribute to your very salvation. With this comes the counter position that one's works are responsible for sending one to Hell. GOD FORBID!!
