The Fruit of Right Theology
Passage: Galatians 2:1–2:10
- One of the problems within the churches of Galatia was legalism. What does legalism look like and how do you know you have encountered it? What are some ways that we can protect ourselves from falling into a legalistic mindset?
- What is our role in establishing and protecting unity within the church? How is this different than how our modern culture views unity?
- Paul holds his ground on an essential doctrine for the church: salvation by grace through faith alone. The diagram below is a theological triage, which helps discern which doctrines are essential and which we can disagree on. Do you agree with this diagram? Would you change it in any way? How does this help protect us from legalism or liberalism?
