The Most Emasculating Thing the Apostle Paul Ever Wrote, and Why


Go mutilate yourself!

Galatians 5:12 NASB
I wish that those who are troubling you would even mutilate themselves.

Do you remember Lorena Bobbit? Yea, the one who cut off her husband’s penis and threw it out of a moving car. As a teenager we had plenty of jokes with Lorena Bobbit involved.

For a man, we are talking about some pretty sensitive issues here!

This is probably the worst possible thing a man could ever think of happening to them. And yet this is the exact language that the apostle Paul is using. He saves this severe language for those false teachers who preach a false gospel.



Our Righteousness, All of Christ or None of Christ

Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing.And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law. You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. Galatians5:1-4

We are free in Christ! What are we free from? We are free from the wrath and anger of God for our sins. For Christ has set us free. We are free from the bondage to live in sin with no way of stopping, for Christ has set us free. We are free from the accusations and lies of the devil, for Christ has set us free. We are free from living a life only doing what our sinful flesh desires, for Christ has set us free!



No Longer Slaves, But Sons

Two siblings may live in the same household. One may be living as under the law, working to get his father’s love and attention. This sibling is living as a slave would. But the other sibling is living as a son. He has his father’s love as a son and is not working to earn anything as a slave would. This is a great example of the prodigal son, who received the party thrown for him in faith. He received it by grace, knowing that was in no way deserving of it. The other brother was jealous and thought he deserved to have the party thrown for him. He was living as a slave instead of a son the whole time!  And the father even said to the older brother, all I have has always been yours, you have always been an heir, you have always been a son, but you have been living as a slave instead!



Do We Really Need the Law of God Today?

“What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator does not mediate for one only, but God is one. 21 Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. 22 But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. 24 Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.” Galatians 3:19-25

“This is the principal purpose of the Law and its most valuable contribution. As long as a person is not a murderer, adulterer, thief, he would swear that he is righteous. How is God going to humble such a person except by the Law? The Law is the hammer of death, the thunder of hell, and the lightning of God’s wrath to bring down the proud and shameless hypocrites. When the Law was instituted on Mount Sinai it was accompanied by lightning, by storms, by the sound of trumpets, to tear to pieces that monster called self-righteousness. As long as a person thinks he is right he is going to be incomprehensibly proud and pre- sumptuous. He is going to hate God, despise His grace and mercy, and ignore the promises in Christ. The Gospel of the free forgiveness of sins through Christ will never appeal to the self-righteous.” Martin Luther

This sums of the purpose of the law well. Why was God’s law given, or of what use is God’s law today? It is to humble the sinner so they might see the need for Christ. The law can by no means make us righteous, but it’s main purpose is to show us our sin, our unrighteousness, our corruption and our guilt before God.

Does Lost Mankind Already Know they are Sinners?



How to Guarantee that God Will Not Answer Your Prayers

Faith and Doubt Religious Background

“This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh? 4 Have you suffered so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain? Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?— 6 just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Galatians 3:2-6

Is it paying tithes? Giving offerings? Reading the Bible, going to church? Being nice to people? Sharing the gospel with others? Wearing a suit and tie to church? Taking communion? Getting water baptized? Coming forward for prayer after service? Will these cause God to move in your life, fill you with His Spirit and work miracles in your life?


About Me
About Me
God has given me a powerful testimony of going from darkness and serving satan, to light and serving the Lord Jesus Christ. The short version is that I was a drug abusing, drug dealing party animal all of my teenage years. I was saved in prison and God has done miracle after miracle in order to receive glory from my life! I am truly blessed to be alive serving Jesus, when I easily could be dead or still in prison. I have been serving the Lord in ministry since 2005. I have had many different roles, doing various things. I have been[...]
