The Epistle of Paul To The Galatians Chapter 6:1-6
(14 of 15)
Harley Howard

1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which
are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of

This church was fractured by false doctrine planted by
the Judiazers. Paul described their behavior under the

believers can do this.

2.) If a man be overtaken in a fault. If a believer is
trapped in some sin (singular). It is important to
know that the fault is not habitual sinning, but A
sin. This is not the behavior of the habitual sinner
that Paul described in cha ...
