He also states in Philippians 1:7 “…knowing that I am set for the defense of the gospel”
And in In: Romans 1:17-18 “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.”
FOR IN THIS BIBLE, which is the word of God, is the righteousness of God shown and the wrath or the anger of God revealed. The Bible is Gods truth to the whole world whether they want to believe it or not. In today’s society people are trying to do away with it, trying to make it like its just an old book; However, Paul said it “is”, not was, or has been, but is the power of God unto salvation.
“but there are some that trouble you and would pervert the gospel of Christ.” Galatians 1:7
WE HAVE THIS WARNING given to us because there are still today those that would pervert this Bible. The word pervert means: to cause to turn aside or away from what is good or true or morally right. Like the apostle Paul, we need to stand in the defense of this gospel and not let people change it, rearrange it, add to it or anything else.
“And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:19
In Galatians 1:9, we are exhorted: “…If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
THE GOSPEL WAS WRITTEN by prophets of God about Jesus Christ, who is the Savior of this world. We need to not be ashamed of it, but be in the defense of it, because it will save honest souls who are looking to make heaven their home. We are not to pervert it or change it; And we need to believe it, because it is the word of God.
