Paul Cries Freedom in Galatia!

On Ethics in the New Creation

By Gysbert M.H. Loubser

This study emphasizes Paul's urgency in conveying the radical newness of life since the advent of Christ and his Spirit. Just as the Spirit introduces believers to the life in Christ, he equally leads them to live life in the faithfulness of Christ, producing the fruit of the Spirit. Paul describes this as a life of freedom from flesh and its law, as well as the elements of the world. Guiding believers ethically from inside and empowering them to do God's will, the Spirit has no need of law, making the christological pneumatological ethic of the new creation wholly anomistic.
