An Easy Refutation of Replacement Theology’s Proof-Text Galatians 3:28

There has never been a greater advocate of the universal composition of the Christian faith than Paul, who emphatically asserted that in Christ “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male not female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Gal. 3:28). This means that when people place their trust in Jesus, neither Jews nor Gentiles have to abandon their ancestry, neither males nor females have to abandon their gender, and neither slaves nor fee people have to abandon their sociological status. Paul’s central focus in his preaching was that Gentiles do not have to become Jews any more than Jews have to become Gentiles, for as he went on to say, “If you are Christ’s , then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to the promise.” (Gal 3:29).
