Thesis:Being "unyielding" is both necessary and complicated.

Introduction:The issues of "liberty" and "slavery" have been the focus of our study for the last couple of weeks. We have seen that "liberty" consists of two parts: the absolute deliverance from any application of the Justice of God to us; and the relative provision of power by God to enable our actions. Paul's claim in 2:4 is that it was the goal of the false brethren to return us to "slavery". And it was his claim in 2:5 that he adamantly resisted that objective.

In this present study, it is our goal to examine Paul's "adamant resistance". It consists of two major parts: its level of tenacity; and its rationale. He didn't yield in subjection for even an hour. His claim is that it was the Gospel itself that was at stake.

Our questions are two:when is it legitimate to refuse to yield?, and what aspect of the Gospel was at stake?
