Galatians 2:11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.

:12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
:13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.
:14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
   If we see a fellow Brother in Christ obviously doing something wrong, isn't it our duty to say something to them? And we are to say it to them, not someone else, first.

4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
   This verse is as plain as day. If you tell someone the truth, alot of times it will make them want to hate you. People don't want to hear the truth when it goes against what they think. But, we are to tell it to them anyway. If they become our enemy, it's not our fault. (Unless we said it in a hateful an unloving way.) The fault is with them. If they can't handle the truth, that is between them and God. It is your duty, as their brother, to tell them the truth.
Works of the Flesh
5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Fruit of the Spirit
:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

   Wouldn't we rather have the Fruit of the Spirit, instead of the Works of the Flesh?

The next Chapters are Isaiah 56-61.
