The Apostle Peter was rebuked by Paul for falling into this 'other gospel' trap, which was leading Christians away from the pure truth:.Galatians 2:7,8,11,14 "But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision.(the Gentiles).was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision.(the Jews).was unto Peter, for he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostlehip of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles...But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed...But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If you, being a Jew, live after the manner of Gentiles and not as do the Jews.(many Jews were still following not just the onerous ancient Mosaic Law, but they had added more actions they felt needed to be more righteous, even though it was completely abolished), why are you compelling the Gentiles to live as the Jews do?".It says here that Peter was leaning toward appeasing those of the circumcision, those who believed that they should adhere to parts of the old covenant laws, rules and regulations as laid down in the now done away Mosaic Law.

The Apostle Barnabas was also being affected:.Galatians 2:13 "And the other Jews dissembled.(original 'to act hypocritically with').likewise with him, insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.".The word 'dissimulation' here, in the original Greek, means 'being carried away with the hypocrisy'.....of those who proclaimed these alternate gospel things. How do you come to know who, in their heart, is with you or against you?

Paul warns about them:.Philippians 3:2 "Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision." Ephesians 4:14 "That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive."

These Christians were feeling compelled to live as some legalists were then telling them, especially regarding keeping the Old Testament.Mosaic Law. See the Mosaic Law link for an in depth exposition of how the laws of the Old Testament are not for Christians in their relationship with their Creator and see here to comprehend how many churches today corrupt the saints with a deadly mix of law and grace.

In Old Testament times, God wanted to have 'His people'. This is a lot like some churches today who really fail to understand the Bible as a whole. They feel as though 'they' and they alone are 'standing up for God'. They no doubt feel as they do because of what they have gleaned from reading the Old Testament.

In Old Testament times there was one people of the Creator and it was not just the Jews. All others were called Gentiles and they were excluded from the promises and blessings.at that time.in the overall plan of the Creator. 

The Creator used Old Testament times to show us, in modern times, a contrast; a contrast between a group of low consciousness carnal selfishly minded Old Testament people and New Testament believers who were concerned for others. New Testament people have become what is known now as Christians.

In the Old Testament people did what was right in their own eyes.(Deuteronomy 12:8; Proverbs 12:15).or basically, whatever feels good for them was ok for them to do. They got forgiven every year. In the New Testament we do what is right for others.(Philippians 2:3; Romans 3:9), having been already forgiven.

In OT times because the people were carnal, they needed a hero, someone that could be used as an example:.Judges 17:6. It is the same today.(come and hear so and so speak, he's an apostle!; truly there is nothing really new:.Ecclesiastes 1:9). Why not stay home and hear God speak to you? How?

Paul says those who teach adherence to a poisonous mix of new covenant grace with old covenant Mosaic Law are minding earthly matters and castigates them as dogs, evil workers.(again, Philippians 3:2 "Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.{a term used by Paul contemptuously of those who were at that time back then, zealots for circumcision}.").and enemies of the cross of Christ:.Philippians 3:18,19 "For many walk, of whom I have told you often and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly.(selfish, greedy, grasping {got to hurry and get for me, me, me}).and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.".(earthly things are ordinary low consciousness ego ways of thinking downloaded from the collective consciousness, which is continually added to by all of us both low and higher consciousness thinking people; humanity at the lower consciousness level must rely on what comes to him from this invisible area of information and it comes to him according to how he has his personal radio tuned; in the absence of possessing higher consciousness tuning he has to rely upon only what frequencies are available; attention to the things of the Creator are the things of higher consciousness, like resurrecting others; seek the best tuning for yourself)

And what were the "earthly things" that they were minding? Were they smoking, drinking, sex, parties, rough language? Were they 'having fun'? Were they 'having sin' still in their lives"? No!

Some were bewitched into developing their own righteousness as an alternate to the free gift of righteousness Creator had already imputed unto them. They just wanted to continue living life from where they were at and without options beyond their current level of thinking and interacting with life. Like many today, they have their own beliefs set from many years of listening at the low consciousness level and they just don't want to bother entertaining any new avenues of life at this time.

Paul was saying that those in Philippi who had turned to the high consciousness of Christ were going back into that which was far lower in stature than Christ and even now defunct; that which was a mixture of low consciousness living with some of the ancient Mosaic Law principles mixed with it. They were lacking the gumption to take on the new way Christ had brought.

Somehow they became duped into thinking ancient principles could get and keep them in a good stead with God while they, at the same time, could live as they please; the way that they thought was the easier way; which it really wasn't. They were just lazy and viewed that which was uncommon to them as requiring more effort. They weren't really sold on the new way yet.

So, these ancient principles were becoming uppermost in their minds and Christ and the grace He made possible were becoming second place and even further on down the line.

They were developing their own type of righteousness based upon the ancient law that was really all gone now. This crazy mixed up corruption would guarantee that they would stay in a low consciousness state. They were into developing an organized system of corrupt leadership to espouse their corrupt religion, just as the Pharisees and Sadducees in Emmanuel's time had done.

Christ took a far greater place.(Hebrews 7:19,22; 8:6).than the old Mosaic Law ever could have had anyway:.Philippians 3:9 ".....not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law.....".Probably the one thing that was attractive to those in Paul's time who were now espousing the Old Testament Mosaic Law, was they could live as they pleased and have any sins wiped away once a year. They didn't see that under the new covenant all sin was gone as far as the Creator was concerned anyway and the way was open now to the wonderful life of high consciousness living, thanks to what Christ came and did:.Romans 6:14.

These early New Testament people shortly after the resurrection of Emmanuel, were beginning to mix law with grace, a deadly mix for one on a spiritual path. Where law is, there is no grace because one is relying on the law for himself to be correct in a relationship with God. And, where grace is, no law is needed:.Romans 13:10; Galatians 5:18.

The true gospel reveals the righteousness of the Creator to the world:.Romans 1:16,17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes. To the Jew first and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith.(one grows in faith practicing spiritual things). As it is written, The just.(those made righteous by the blood of Emmanuel).live by faith."

The 'transgression'.(sin).of God's people today is that they do not see that they are righteous.(even David saw this and David had lots of things wrong in his life back then).because of Christ's righteousness applied to them as a gift:.Romans 5:17 "For if by one man's offence death reigned by one, much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Emmanuel the Christ.".How?

This myopic approach toward true spirituality leads people to adopt a set of rules and regulations which is the antithesis of Christ's faith active in us. Instead such are they who walk 'by sight':.2Corinthians 5:7 "For we walk by faith, not by sight.".They walk having to always monitor actions by the do's and don'ts they believe they should take into account, instead of by the freedom of the spirit, which negates worry over actions:.Romans 13:10. All one needs be concerned about in living their life is the freedom of the spirit:.James 2:12; Romans 8:2.

Consequently, some feel or believe in their heart that they are unrighteous, especially so, seeing sin still in their lives like a plague and they are bewildered and/or ashamed. This is evidence that they have the wrong gospel:.Romans 9:33 ".....whosoever believes on Him shall not be ashamed."

Religion often uses the do's and don'ts out of the Old Testament to bind followers. These types of religious followers.(Matthew 15:14; Luke 6:39).have all but given up thinking for themselves.(Acts 17:11), unable to fully comprehend what it means to live from the law of love in their heart.

But, when one loves, he needs no rules and regulations:.Romans 13:10 "Love works no ill to his neighbour; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law." 1Timothy 1:5 "Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart and of a good conscience and of faith unfeigned." James 3:11,12 "Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?" Matthew 7:17,18,20 "Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit..A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit...Wherefore by their fruits you'll know them." Matthew 12:35 "A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.".So one has to carefully see into others. Higher consciousness gives one this intuition.

Lacking power needed to move from weaknesses, a person becomes alienated from the Creator, alienated from His words and alienated from His guidance. What I do.
