Famous quotes with Galatians

  • The Galatians are severely censured for giving heed to false doctrines, and are called to pronounce even an apostle anathema, if he preached another gospel.
    Charles Hodge

  • The entire law or scripture is summed up in a single command. Guess what it could be? Is nothing else but LOVE scripture reference (Galatians 5 : 14). So, says the scripture and I'm saying the same thing. You've got to love all and sundry, even if you don't like them. Do you hate at the expense of love? If yes then, please do away with hatred and kindly replenish yourself with love. For, a call to love all is a divine command which you should strictly adhere to. Yes of course, you should love and never hate. Besides, God first loved us. So that we can love one another in return. Therefore, love all and hate none.
    Emeasoba George
  • The entire law or scripture is summed up in a single command. Guess what it could be? It's nothing else but love your neighbour as yourself, scripture reference (Galatians 5 : 14). So, says the scripture and I'm saying the same thing. You've got to love all and sundry, even if you don't like them. Do you hate at the expense of love? If yes then, please do away with hatred and kindly replenish yourself with love. For, a call to love all is a divine command which you should strictly adhere to.

  • I rather doubt if man really has much to gain by substituting peace for strife, as you and Jesus Christ recommend. Sic notus Ulixes? do you think you can outwit the resourceful malevolence of Nature? God is not mocked, as St. Paul long ago warned the Galatians. When man gets rid of a great trouble he is easier for a while, but not for long: Nature instantly sets to work to weaken his power of sustaining trouble, and very soon seven pounds is as heavy as fourteen pounds used to be. Last Easter Monday a young woman threw herself in the Lea because her dress looked so shabby amongst the holiday crowd: in other times and countries women have been ravished by half-a-dozen dragoons and taken it less to heart. It looks to me as if the state of mankind always had been and always would be a state of just tolerable discomfort.
    A. E. Housman
