Galatians 5

We like to focus on the dramatic sins in Galatians 5:19-20: sexual immorality, impurity, debauchery, idolatry, witchcraft, drunkenness, & orgies.  Very dramatic indeed.  Man, we must be doing good!  But those are less than 50% of the list.

Here’s the rest: hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy…. ok, maybe we aren’t as blameless as we’d like to pretend.

Interesting that half of the list has to do with purity, the other half has to do with unity.
