"But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpents cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough."
(2 Corinthians 11:3-4)
The apostle Paul was very concerned that the early church would stray away from his teachings and follow a different gospel that would lead them back into bondage. He wrote to the Galatians saying, "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." (Galatians 5:1)
Jesus came to set us free from the bondage of sin by forgiving us through the cross. Yet many Christians today find themselves enslaved again to sin. How is this possible? What is this yoke of slavery that Paul speaks of?
