If there's one thing Paul hates, it's liars. See, he knows what the truth is (Jesus told him, after all), and he can't stand to see anyone say otherwise. These naysayers may think they're doing the right thing, but they're very sadly mistaken. In the end, Paul says God's gonna sort it all out. But for now, just stick with Paul, stay away from the lies, and everything will be okay. Thanks for the advice, Mr. Paul.
Questions About Lies and Deceit
Why is Paul so convinced that his version of the truth is superior? What proof does he have that he's right?
Do you think Paul's opponents would see themselves as liars and deceivers? Or is that how they would classify Paul?
Why is Paul's attitude towards the naysayers in Galatia different than his feelings about the same types of people in Philippi?
