This is the eighth time Paul has referred to them as “brethren”. This tells me a couple of things. First that no matter how many mistakes and wrong turns the church makes in its Christian walk, they are still family. It also tells me why Paul is so upset with what has been going on in the congregations in Galatia. Paul was there at their conception and their rebirth and now “these people” are messing with his family and he is not happy about it. In this sermon, we will see what Paul has to say to his “brethren” to help them to deal with problems and conflicts that arise.
