<209> Thesis: Enemies are those who have an agenda of self-exaltation. Introduction: Last week we considered Paul's question to the Galatians: Have I become your enemy by telling you the truth? We saw that "enemies" seek the actual hurt of their opponents and that "Truth" can never be used in the service of a lie. This week we are going to look into Paul's application of those realities to the Galatians' situation. In 4:17 he strips bare the hidden agenda of the false teachers so that the Galatians might know who their real enemies are.
