Not Even a Little Yeast

Gal 5: 2- 3 "Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law"

"This is a powerful statement by the “champion of grace”. The way I understand this to be is that he is telling them that if they allow even a little law in, then it will begin to change their whole way of thinking and eventually they will begin to change even their way of living and before they know it they will be completely back under law. “ A little yeast works through the whole lump”. Either Christ is not enough and they need to add a little law as well, or He is enough in which case if they do add a little law, Christ will be of no value. ">We cannot allow any law, human traditions and principals into our thinking or into the thinking of the people in our care, “Christ is the end of the law” to us it is over, we now live by the Spirit. And in us He produces His fruit, and “against such things there is no law”
