6 I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.
Think: Paul quickly turns from greeting his readers to letting them know that he is not happy. The Jesus followers in Galatia had been fooled by people who were telling them that they had to participate in many outward practices to prove that they were “right” with God.
Be honest: What are some outward practices that you used to believe or still believe make you “right” with God? Why did you or do you think that way?
