For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. Galatians 1:10

Paul begins this verse with the Greek arti gar – “For now.” The use of the adverb arti, rather than the more common word for now, nun, is used to indicate “here-and-now; exactly now, in the immediate present” (HELPS Word Studies).… Read the rest
