The Apostle Paul set an example for us when he was addressing the Galatian believers about the errors of their doctrine. He equated the process to the “travails of childbirth” as he struggled to help them understand. His ultimate goal was see the likeness of Christ formed in them. So, we can learn from Paul as we seek to assist our own fellow believers who may have accepted false doctrines that don’t line up with the truth found in God’s Word.
