Greeting

1 Paul, an apostle-not from men or by man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead-
2 and all the brothers who are with me: To the churches of Galatia.a
3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord b Jesus Christ,
4 who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,
5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

No Other Gospel

6 I am amazed that you are so quickly turning away from Him who called you by the grace of Christ, [and are turning] to a different gospel-
7 not that there is another [gospel], but there are some who are troubling you and want to change the gospel of Christ.
8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel other than what we have preached to you, a curse be on him!c
9 As we have said before, I now say again: if anyone preaches to you a gospel contrary to what you received, a curse be on him!d
10 For am I now trying to win the favor of people, or God? Or am I striving to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a slave of Christ.
