  • Galatians 2:11-3:2
  • Galatians 2:14 – We must be like Paul in standing up for the truth regardless of the opposition.
  • Galatians 2:16 – Note that the context here is the old law vs. the new law. Paul is making the point that we are not justified by works of the old law.  Of course, man is not now nor has ever been justified by because no one has been able to keep either the old law or new law perfectly (except Jesus).  Calvinists attempt to use this verse to argue that man’s actions have no bearing on our salvation, but that is not the point of this verse at all.  We are justified by grace, but must obey God in order to take advantage of that grace.
