Considering Galatians 1, I Cor 2:6-8, Gal:6 v1-3, Acts 9, 2 Cor 13.
Paul, an apostle, not from men, nor by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead, and all the brethren who are with me, to the churches of Galatia:
Grace to you and peace from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins, to deliver us from this evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to who be the glory forever and ever! Amen!
I am surprised that you turn away so quickly from the one who called you by the grace of Christ, to move on to another gospel.
Not that there is another gospel, but there are people who confuse you and want to subvert the gospel of Christ. But, when we, when an angel from heaven announces another gospel than the one we have preached to you, let him be anathema!
We have already said it, and I repeat it at this hour: if anyone announces a different Gospel to you than the one you have received, let him be anathema!
And now, is it the favor of men that I desire, or that of God? Am I trying to please men? If I still pleased men, I would not be a servant of Christ.
I declare to you, brethren, that the gospel which I have preached is not of man; for I neither received it nor learned it from a man but by a revelation from Jesus Christ.
For you have known how I behaved formerly in Judaism, how I persecuted to the utmost and ravaged the church of God, and how I was further advanced in Judaism than many of my age and nation, being animated by an excessive zeal for the traditions of my father. But when it pleased him who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, to reveal his Son in me, that I proclaim him among the Gentiles; immediately I consulted neither flesh nor blood, and I did not go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went to Arabia. Then I returned to Damascus. Three years later, I went up to Jerusalem to meet Cephas and stayed fifteen days with him.
But I did not see any other of the apostles, except James, the brother of the Lord. In what I write to you, behold, before God, I do not lie.
Then I went to the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
Now I was a stranger in appearance to the churches of Judea which are in Christ; only they had heard: He who once persecuted us now proclaims the faith which he then tried to destroy. And they glorified God over me.
Yes, indeed, the gospel of Jesus Christ is a gift for all mankind.
"Whoever receives it must walk as Jesus walked" 1 John 2v6
