Galatians 1: 6 & 7 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

Romans 4:23 – 25 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

There’s a statement in Galatians

From the great apostle’s pen,

Dealing with a situation,

That was quite a problem then;

It consisted of an error

Not uncommon in this day;

Men are saved by works of merit,

Which is not the Bible way.

It is called, “another gospel.”

“Not another,” so saith Paul,

It is a sly perversion,

Not the gospel after all;

It is thus a woeful mixture,

Law and works are magnified,

Robbing Christ of all the glory

Of the cross on which He died,

Righteousness is not by doing

The commandments of the law,

For the ritual from Sinai,

Will reveal the slightest flaw;

But the righteousness demanded

For the judgement seat to come,

Christ for righteousness imputed:

God’s dear, holy, sinless Son.
