All Commentaries on Galatians 5:20 Go To Galatians 5
Cornelius a Lapide
Wrath. Anger is the desire for revenge, and is a deadly sin when a bitter revenge is sought, or an object on which to bestow the angry feelings. It is venial only when it is instinctive, or when it aims at some slight revenge. The Apostle, therefore, is dealing here with the various sins enumerated in their highest and extremest form, for it is then only that they exclude from the Kingdom of heaven (ver21).
Heresies. Acts of private judgment against the teaching of the Church. These evince great temerity and presumption.
