Galatians is an angry Pauline epistle written to the Church in Galatia (in modern Turkey) 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]
