True Christianity, is what most of the followers of Jesus Christ want to experience on daily basis. Some say that true Christianity must be achieved by hard work, good deeds, control of body and mind; not faith alone, but good works are needed for God’s justification.

These teachers urged the Galatians to add to their faith in Christ by adding the law to it, particularly circumcision. Modern day Christians do not face such influence, which is the major difference between Galatians and current biblical audiences.

Evil exists because the devil, which initially was an angel of light, wanted to be above God and no one can be more than God. He created me with a purpose in life and is to develop my spiritual life, serve Him, others and follow His word. I am committed to my Christian beliefs since I based my knowledge in the Bible.
“Are we going to believe God?”, and “Are we going to obey God?” Platt causes the reader to take a critical evaluation of self and discover whether we are “settling for a Christianity that revolves around catering to ourselves when the central message of Christianity is actually about abandoning ourselves”.

This involves surrendering your life and leadership to Him. The real secret to leading like Jesus is found in Proverbs 3:5 -6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight”. THE FOCUS OF THE LEADERSHIP OF JESUS: FORMING PEOPLE The goal of Jesus was the people. He was looking to conduct them to the eternal salvation and to form them to his own image.

Points thirty-two through forty summarize to say that letters of pardon by the Church do not represent true forgiveness of God. Forgiveness is granted only by God. Luther also stated that all the blessings of Christ come from God even without letters of pardon.

I learned long ago as a new Christian that if I leaned on my own understanding and trusted my “gut”, I would probably arrive at the wrong decision.
