Some people in the early church shortly after the resurrection were going from the freedom of the spirit into bondage. Paul had to remind them about the truth about law, that all the Old Testament law was fulfilled and that a person now is led of the spirit, not having to rely upon a bunch of do's and don'ts, as the spirit would now be their guide:.Galatians 5:14,18 "For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: Love thy neighbour as youself...But if you be led of the Spirit, you are not under the law." Romans 13:10 "Love works no ill to his neighbour, therefore love is the fulfilling of the law."

Paul also talks about this to Christians in Rome:.Romans 8:15 "For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.".And why would you have this kind of confidence?

All through the book of Romans, Paul talks of the law and how much greater the righteousness of faith is than the law. Some Christians today, in error, continue to believe that we should be keeping parts of the Mosaic Law to be right with their Creator. 

Paul calls those who espoused this perverted gospel, false brethren:.Galatians 2:4 "And that because of false brethren unawares brought in.(infilrated by design no doubt), who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Emmanuel, that they might bring us into bondage.".False brethren have been taught by false ministers. Do you know what gospel you are believing? Make certain to yourself that it's not a mix of Old Testament law with New Testament faith. See Mosaic Law to see why this is a deadly combination. 

Paul says: Are you nuts, wanting to be in bondage:.Galatians 4:9-11 "But now, after that you have known God or rather are known of God, how turn you again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto you desire again to be in bondage? You observe days and months and times and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain." Galatians 5:1 "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."

2Peter 2:1-3 "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways, by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned.(well formed and planned to produce a specific purpose).words make merchandise of you.(original 'keep you there for the money', 'to use you for their gain':.Jude 1:16); whose judgment now of a long time lingers not and their damnation slumbers not."

Paul was also concerned about the corrupting of minds of Christians in the city of Corinth:.2Corinthians 11:2-4 "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy. For I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled.Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that comes preaches another Emmanuel, whom we have not preached or if you receive another spirit, which you have not received or another gospel, which you have not accepted, you might well bear with him."

The way to change people over to another gospel is first to present the alternative; that is, present a choice between two seeming positives.(no one would go for something they believed was negative and no good for them).and show why one is best through presenting seemingly.efficacious information. This way, doubt is created and implicated to the other choice presented as the poorer one. And of course falsies want you to accept their 'better' choice. What they don't tell you is that it's the better choice for them.

Paul says these other teachers appear as the apostles.(original Greek, 'messengers').of Christ. It also says here, that Satan has his ministers who appear as the ministers of righteousness. This just means that these people are not of higher consciousness and act from an ego level of low consciousness, which includes deceit, greed and glory:.2Corinthians 11:13-15 "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works.(John 12:48)." Acts 20:29,30 "For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them." 1John 4:1 "Beloved, believe not every spirit but try the spirits whether they are of God because many false prophets are gone out into the world."

Now remember, these 'falsies' were perverting the message that righteousness is a free gift from our Creator and they taught things which led one into bondage to parts of the Mosaic Law. 

How to ensure that you don't become alienated:.Proverbs 3:3; Proverbs 7:3.

Think on these:.Hebrews 8:10 and Hebrews 10:16 "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel.(today it's a spiritual Israel).after those days, says the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind and write them in their hearts. And I will be to them a God and they shall be to me a people.".What works for me

Also to ensure that you don't become alienated, be sure to.study. Philippians 3:14-17 "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Emmanuel. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded and if in anything you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. Brethren, be followers together of me and mark them which walk so as you have us for an ensample."

Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things."
