Another gospel in Galatians 1

Many claim that Galatians 1 precludes multiple gospels. But it's simply them ignoring context as is too typical of many.

Gal 1:6-9 (AKJV/PCE)
(1:6) I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: (1:7) Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. (1:8) But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. (1:9) As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

There is a specific audience involved here. Once you take that into account, there is no problem at all.

What Paul said here is so clear that it cannot be misunderstood.

All who argue against it have some personal stake in Paul not having a separate, previously hidden Gospel. They don't want it to be true. They know that starting up the inevitable chain of reason will end up costing them something they've been told is theirs; something which they dearly love or are terrified of losing.

So they argue against the plainest possible reading of one of the Bible's clearest passages. That, or they've been blinded to it, which ultimately is still their own fault.
