Galatians is an angry Pauline epistle written to the Church in Galatia (in modern Turkey, the European side of Istanbul[note 1]) after they abandoned his gospel of salvation by grace alone and embraced the gospel of the Judaizers who said before you could be a good Christian you had to be a good circumcised Jew. His entire message boils down to this line:

Galatians 5:4
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

Galatians is one of the epistles that textual analysis confirms Paul actually wrote.[1]
