Freed from the Curse! (6 of 17)
Born AGAIN Free
Galatians is the book which tells us that we have been
set free in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are born again

are all saved in the same way. All people are saved by
grace, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. That's
God's plan of salvation. It will never, ever change.
Paul is proving this point. He has maintained in the
first two chapters of Galatians that this is exactly
what salvation is all about. It is not by the works of
