Fig Leaves, Lies and the Grace of God
Galatians attacks the two false ideas about fullness that have Jesus’ name on them. Galatians is going to deconstruct legalism, the idea that, I can control God’s affection for me by my behavior, that I will earn his approval by what I do. It’s an outside-in type of religion that says, I ultimately control God. The other error is really the error of license, or God ultimately does not know what’s best for me. I know what’s best for me. I’ll set my own rules, and I’ll live my own way. Both legalism and license fail to trust God at his Word.
