Fruit of the Spirit, Part 1: Galatians 5:22a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, December 15, 2014
We show from John 15 that the key to bearing fruit is abiding in Christ. Man-made schemes and processes cannot produce the fruit of the Spirit. Luther was right when he said so often, "The Holy Spirit comes to us through the Word."

Works of the Flesh, Part 2: Galatians 5:20b,21
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, December 8, 2014
The works of the flesh include hostilities. The presence of unnecessary hostilities shows that something else is at work than the Prince of Peace reigning within us. False teaching always stirs up strife. We discuss various works of the flesh...

Works of the Flesh, Part 1: Galatians 5:19,20a
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, December 1, 2014
The flesh is that which shows itself through works of the flesh, in contrast to the Spirit which bears fruit. We point out that works of the flesh are called "obvious" and why that is so. We warn against the sins of sensuality and immorality...

Led By the Spirit: Galatians 5:17-18
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, November 24, 2014
The idea of the conflict between the flesh and the Spirit is clear in this passage. We compare these verses in Galatians with pertinent ones in Romans 7 and 8. We explore the Biblical understanding of the flesh versus Spirit conflict. We finish with a discussion of what it means to be led by the Spirit.

Walking in the Spirit: Galatians 5:16
Presented by
Broadcast Monday, November 17, 2014
The command to walk by the Spirit is central in the New Testament and we must understand it and take it seriously. We agree with Luther who said the Holy Spirit comes to us through the Word. We show that walking by the Spirit involves believing Gods Word, trusting what God says, and thus living in a way that displays the fruits of the Spirit.

When Christians Bite and Devour: Galatians 5:15
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, November 10, 2014
The commands to love God and neighbor summarize the Law. These are also the commands of Christ. The Lord Himself commands us to love one another. The result of failure to obey Christ in this matter leads to the situation where Christians bite and devour..

The Command to Love: Galatians 5:14
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, November 3, 2014
We discuss the dangers of practicing silence and solitude when it was not commanded by the Lord and His apostles. To love one another, we can hardly live in isolation and obey that command. The command to love summarized the whole law.

By Love Serve One Another: Galatians 5:13
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, October 27, 2014
We are called to liberty, so we show how Jesus came to bring freedom to captives. We are warned not to use this freedom in an invalid, fleshly way. We are warned not to allow liberty to be an excuse to give the flesh a "base of operations."
MP3 (duration 00:34:09)

Paul's Imprecation Against the Wolves: Galatians 5:12
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, October 20, 2014
We discuss the fact that Paul is very harsh with false law-givers. He sees them as a threat to the gospel. Grace mingled with works ceases to be grace, as Paul warns in Romans 11:6. The wolves who abuse the flock may look harmless and even winsome...
MP3 (duration 00:31:56)

True and False Separation: Galatians 5:10-11
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, October 13, 2014
We begin by explaining why we use the term "law-works" when discussing the heresy warned against in Galatians. We explain how three things kept the Jews separate: food laws, circumcision and Sabbath. These were done away with in Christ...
MP3 (duration 00:35:25)

Leaven and Sabbath Laws: Galatians 5:9
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, October 6, 2014
When law-works are added to the gospel of grace, they are like leaven and will infect the entire church. Law-works are an attack on the sufficiency of Christ. We discuss the issue of imposing Sabbath keeping on Christians...
MP3 (duration 00:32:55)

Watch out for Contrived Persuasiveness: Galatians 5:8
Presented by Bob DeWaay and Eric Douma
Broadcast Monday, September 29, 2014
This passage warns about "the persuasion" which attacks the gospel and is clearly not from God. The "persuasion" is the prescription of law-works which are promoted by false teachers. All the world's religions teach "the persuasion" in one form or another
