Cary Killough: Causes and Cures for Backsliding (Galatians 3:1-14)
Cary Killough, senior pastor of Meadowbrook Baptist Church in Robinson, Texas tells a story about the discomfort of backsliding, a word that appears most often in Jeremiah. The Galatians didn’t backslide into hedonism but into legalism. Paul was angry with the Galatians, who let go of grace so easily in favor of working harder to earn salvation. After explaining Paul’s argument for faith over works, Killough ends with three take-aways.
This sermon was delivered on Aug. 16, 2020, for the morning worship services of Meadowbrook Baptist Church in Robinson. It is part of an expository series on Galatians.
