Galatians 2 Objections to Grace

This entry is part 2 of 10 in the series Galatians

But when Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned…he began to withdraw and hold himself aloof, fearing the party of the circumcision. Galatians 2:11-12

It was a dangerous time in the early church: everyone, including Peter, seemed to be moving away from God’s forgiveness, which is a free gift. But Paul remained dogmatic, and fought Peter publically over the issue.

Why do people run away from a free gift? This incident helps us understand this phenomena.
