We welcome you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We hope you will be encouraged and edified, having heard Biblical

truth in love.


Great Basin RP is a member of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of

North America, one of the oldest denominations in the United States.

We are committed to the doctrines of Scripture and the formation of

loving community as a necessary fruit of the Gospel.


In light of the above, we believe that the most comprehensive and accurate summary of biblical teaching is found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, together with the Westminster Larger and

Shorter Catechisms. These documents were completed in 1647 as a summary of Christian belief and practice, with the desired intention of helping Christ’s church become unified in doctrine, government, and worship (John 17:11). In addition to the Westminster Standards, we also maintain the Testimony of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of

North America, which is our denomination’s own continuing and contemporary application of the Word of God to our current culture and context.

Paul’s Final Answer to Two Common Errors (Gal. 5:7-15)



Theme: Because we are rooted in Christ by faith alone; we are to reject the twin errors of legalism and antinomianism


Rejecting the Leaven of Legalism/Neonomianism (7-12)

           The Subtlety of Leaven and Legalism (7-9)



           Subtle Species of Legalism/Neonomianism

-Adding our works to the ground of justification (i.e. adding to the work of Christ)


-Adding our works to the instrument of justification (i.e. adding conditions to faith)



           The Subtle Appeal of Legalism



           The Severity of Legalism (Vs 10-12)



Application: We are to cast out the leaven of Legalism and embrace

Christ fully by faith



Rejecting the Error of Antinomianism/Lawlessness (Vs 13-15)

           Liberty from the Covenant of Works vs Abiding Validity of the Law



           Love for Neighbor as Fulfillment of the Law


“The task God sets for us is to need others less and to love them

more. Instead of looking for ways to manipulate others, we will ask God what our duty is toward them.” – Ed Welch


           The Common Error and Danger of Antinomianism



Application: We are to reject Antinomianism and allow the love of

Christ to overflow into love for neighbor

This Week’s Confessional Meditation

6.1. This corruption of man’s nature is commonly called total depravity. Two examples in the Scripture demonstrate that being human is not equivalent to being sinful—that of Adam before the fall and of Christ in His human nature. Since the fall every part of man’s nature is affected by sin. His understanding is darkened; he is motivated by wrong principles, is rebellious and wholly unable of his own will to love God or to obtain salvation. Natural men are not equally evil, nor as evil as they might be. They may conform to some human standards of goodness.

Heb. 4:15; Gen. 6:5; Rom. 5:12-17; Rom. 8:7; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 7:18; Eph. 4:18; Gen. 3:22; Mark 10:20.

2. Every man was created in the image of God. His life, therefore, whether he is regenerate or unregenerate, should be recognized as having value to himself, to society, and to God.

Prov. 16:4; Gen. 9:5-6; Matt. 10:29-31; Gen. 1:27; Rom. 5:7-8; Acts 17:24-29; Rom. 9:20-24.
