In the book of Galatians, Paul was writing to a collection of churches in the Galatian region who had been led astray by a false gospel. Specifically, he addresses churches in the region of Antioch, Iconium, Lystra, and Derbe. A group known as the Judaizers (Phil. 3:2–6) had claimed that salvation depended upon works of righteousness. When the Galatians believed that keeping the law could save them, they were removed from Christ and all the blessings of His presence in their lives. The cold reality of claiming that salvation can be obtained by works, is that you are left alone to justify yourself.
