"They were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel..."
Text: Galatians 2:14a
The apostle Paul’s integrity was affronted. He could not remain silent. Not to have spoken up strongly for the truth would mean compromise on Paul’s part.
But when I saw that they were not straightforward about
the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all,
‘If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews,
why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews?
We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles.’
