Question: For Christians only. Do you find fault with the Apostle Paul?
I have noticed that some discredit Paul and make comments about him like: "Paul got it wrong" "He (Paul) just made it up" "Paul screwed it up" "Paul was a false Apostle"
From where do you get these ideas? Please pinpoint where and why his writings are in error.
Paul authored more books of the New Testament than anyone. For a person to disregard his testimony and be at odds with what he has written puts that person opposed to what most major denomination Christian religions teach. I think most accept, implore, teach, and hold his writings in high regard. I see no exterior "earthly"monetary or personal prestige to be gained in accepting Paul's writings. I do see faith to be gained.
So, where do you see errors in Paul? Please be specific. List chapter and verse if you like.
Answer: I see no errors in Pauls writings.
His writings are letters to the churches already established[epistles]...he is trying to help build up the faith that the apostles preached!
And they were all filled with the Spirit of Truth -JESUS
From Paul [acts 22]
6"About noon as I came near Damascus, suddenly a bright light from heaven flashed around me. 7I fell to the ground and heard a voice say to me, 'Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?'
8" 'Who are you, Lord?' I asked.
" 'I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting,' he replied. 9My companions saw the light, but they did not understand the voice of him who was speaking to me.
10"'What shall I do, Lord?' I asked.
"'Get up,' the Lord said, 'and go into Damascus. There you will be told all that you have been assigned to do.' 11My companions led me by the hand into Damascus, because the brilliance of the light had blinded me.
12"A man named Ananias came to see me. He was a devout observer of the law and highly respected by all the Jews living there. 13He stood beside me and said, 'Brother Saul, receive your sight!' And at that very moment I was able to see him.
14"Then he said: 'The God of our fathers has chosen you to know his will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words from his mouth. 15You will be his witness to all men of what you have seen and heard. 16And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.'
