Paul On Trial For Heresy

Chapter One

Throughout history the number of righteous people has always been small.

We see this in Genesis 6:5-8 , “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repents me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.”

The entire ancient world of millions, or perhaps billions of people, were one hundred percent wicked and evil, except for ONE MAN, Noah.

The Apostle Peter said, “And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly.” (2 Peter 2:5).

Jesus speaking of what he calls faith said, “Nevertheless when the Son of man comes, shall he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8).

The faith that Jesus speaks of is the faith entrusted to his twelve apostles, whom he left to found his church. They were trained and prepared by Jesus Christ himself, to go and preach the gospel to all nations. He that believes and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believes not shall be damned.” (Mark 16:16).

The greatest of these apostles was Peter.

Matthew 16:17-19 “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood has not revealed it unto you, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto you, that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church: and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever is loosed on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

The church is founded on the faith of Peter, and anything other than this is not true faith! No wonder the devil has worked so very hard to do a character assassination of Peter, to where the Christians no longer heed his words and warnings. Christians no longer place themselves under the authority given to the twelve apostles (I include Matthias), that Jesus sent to found his church. This is apostasy from the gospel.

Peter gave us a very solemn warning about some epistles that he saw bring destruction to the lives of many people. Yet his warning was not heeded, and somehow these epistles made their way into the Bible, and our modern church is founded upon these very same epistles. We have abandoned the teachings and commands of Jesus Christ, and the faith of Peter, and have built our church upon the epistles of Paul.

Listen very carefully to Peter’s warning about Paul’s epistles. Peter was too wise to attack Paul head on. In his time Paul’s letters had already gained a large following. So Peter in his wisdom began with gracious words about Paul.

2 Peter 3:15-17 “And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you; AS ALSO IN ALL HIS EPISTLES, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, seeing that you know these things before, BEWARE LEST YOU ALSO, BEING LED AWAY WITH THE ERROR OF THE WICKED, FALL FROM YOUR OWN STEADFASTNESS.”

The Apostle Peter said here very clearly that Paul’s epistles brought destruction to many people, and that they were the error of the wicked. Cry, yell, weep, shout with rage, turn red in the face, and still these verses say the very same thing. So it is time that we recover ourselves from the error of the wicked. The modern church is full of sin and adultery, both physical and spiritual. There are thousands of denominations, groups, and splinter groups that claim to be Christian. We are in very deep trouble. I believe that a false hyper-grace gospel caused most of this mess.

So the purpose of this book is to give Paul and his epistles a fair trial, using only the King James Bible with The Thompson’s Chain Reference Study Helps as evidence. No other outside material is used. Man chose what books were allowed into our modern Bible. Even today some Bibles include the books of the Apocrypha, and some do not. Men make mistakes. The Bible without the Apocrypha, and the Bibles with the Apocrypha cannot both be correct. All the different modern versions of the Bible cannot all be correct either. They say different things. Yet God has allowed all of this.

You who believe in the infallibility of the Bible, tell me, which Bible is infallible? The Bible with the Apocrypha, or the Bible without the Apocrypha? The King James Bible? or the New King James Bible? The NIV, Today’s English Version, The Message, The Watchtower, or any other version? If God does not allow or permit there to be any error, then why all this error?

Could it be that we really are the church of Laodicea “and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”? (Revelation 3:17).

So let’s do what Jesus counseled us to do.”I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness does not appear; and anoint your eyes with eyesalve that you may see.” (Revelation 3:18).

Let us be brave, honest, and above all, let us SEE. I am not bringing into question the Old Testament (without the Apocrypha books). I find no fault or error in it. I believe it to be 100% the Word of God and infallible. I am not bringing into question the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, or Revelation. I find no fault nor error in it. I believe these books to be 100% the Word of God and infallible.

I bring into question the Book of Acts because of Paul’s conversion story, and also what happened immediately after his conversion. Especially because the three accounts of it that are given in the Book of Acts are vastly different one from the others.

I bring into question ALL of Paul’s epistles, Romans through Hebrews. Whether you believe Hebrews is written by Paul or not, it has brought pain, heartache, and shipwreck to millions of people during the past 2,000 years because it adds a new unpardonable sin that Jesus never mentioned. Jesus clearly taught only ONE unpardonable sin, the blasphemy of or speaking against, the Holy Spirit. So let us also be commended by Jesus for placing Paul on trial.

Revelation 2:3 “I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you can not bear them which are evil: and have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars.”

Remember that Paul and his epistles are being put on trial in this book. I give him the benefit of being considered innocent until proven guilty. I do warn you that what you are about to read will totally shock and awe you. Only the King James Bible is being used, but you will see things that you NEVER saw before. If your heart is soft and honest before God, you will weep, repent, cry out to God for mercy, and be astonished; as I was. If your heart is hard toward God, all you will get is very angry. May you have eyes to see, ears to hear, and a soft heart that understands. Listen to all of the evidence being presented before casting judgement one way or the other. May God richly bless you. I love you and I hope to see you in heaven some day.

CHAPTER 2

I always liked the Bereans. They didn’t just accept what was preached to them, but they “searched the scriptures daily, whether these things were so.” (Acts 17:10-11).
Jesus gave a command to study his words.

John 8:31-32 “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Above all I want to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. I want to live like Jesus lived and to be like him. I want to obey Jesus’ commands, because I love him and he is my King. I also want to live free from sin, and to be holy, as God is holy. Jesus showed the way.

John 8:33-36 “They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: How do you say, you shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abides not in the house forever: but the Son abides forever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.”

That is what I want. I don’t want to be the servant of sin, but to be free! So, by continuing to study Jesus’ words, I become his disciple indeed, and I gain knowledge of the truth, and the truth makes me free. Look at how the disciples interrelated with Jesus.

Matthew 5:1-2 “And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: and he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying.”

The multitudes followed Jesus, but his disciples had private sessions with him. Did you ever stop to think that the Sermon on the Mount was given only to the disciples of Jesus? The disciples got to ask Jesus questions, and he answered them. Jesus spoke openly to his disciples in private. To the multitudes he spoke in parables. So naturally the disciples were curious as to why Jesus spoke openly to them, but in parables to the multitudes.

Matthew 13:10-17 “And the disciples came and said unto him, Why do you speak unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that he has. Therefore I speak to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which says, by hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive: for this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed are your eyes for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them.”

Jesus said a lot here. First, it is only given to disciples to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven. To everyone else it is not given. Second, the parables of Jesus are actually to HIDE the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven from everyone who is not a disciple. Third, blessed are the disciples eyes, for they see; and the disciples ears, for they hear; and the disciples hearts, for they understand.

So I desired and yearned to be a disciple of Jesus. I wanted to follow Jesus, to live with Jesus, to love Jesus, to obey Jesus, and to know Jesus. According to Jesus’ own words, only a disciple can do this. So how do I go about being a disciple of Jesus in this modern time? I looked to the words of Jesus to tell me. I discovered that asking questions is the key to everything.

Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For everyone that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.”

So I started to ask questions, seek answers, and knock on heaven’s gate. I asked, “How did Jesus come to know his disciples?”

Matthew 4:18-22 “And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he said unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.”

Notice that Jesus calls people to be disciples. Jesus also said, “For many are called but few are chosen.” Jesus calls, but only those who answer the call are chosen. What does Jesus call people to do? To become disciples. In Laodicea there was an entire church full of people who didn’t answer Jesus’ call. They didn’t even have Jesus in their hearts.

Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”

What did Peter, Andrew, James, and John do? They immediately left their nets, their ships, and their father; and followed Jesus. So they left their jobs, their businesses, their family, and their homes to be with Jesus.

Luke 14:26-33 “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever does not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sits not down first, and counts the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest happily, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, and all that behold it begin to mock him. Saying, this man began to build, and was not able to finish. Or what king, sits not down first, and consults whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that comes against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends ambassadors, and desires conditions of peace. So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsakes not all that he has, he cannot be my disciple.”

So to be a disciple I have to hate my own life! Wow! How different from modern best selling books like Victoria Osteen’s book, “Love Your Life.” Then I have to bear my cross and follow Jesus. In Roman times when a man was condemned to death, he was given a cross to bear. From that moment on he was a dead man walking. He was still alive, but his life was over. Never again would he go home, work, play, relax, enjoy a good meal, be with his family or friends, sleep, or anything else that he had previously done. His new life experience was suffering, pain, shame, scorn, and imminent death. This is the picture that Jesus is painting. He wants you to know that it won’t be easy to be his disciple. The entire life that you knew before, will now end abruptly. So Jesus tells us to count the cost. To think about it for awhile. Meditate on it. Ask yourself if you become a disciple, will you have what it takes to continue, to the end of your life on earth. Then Jesus says that he that forsakes not all that he has, he cannot be my disciple. Now Peter and the others did this.

Matthew 19:27-29 “Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed you; What shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that you which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone that has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”

Notice the benefits of being a disciple. You receive a hundred times what you gave up, and you inherit everlasting life. According to Jesus Christ, only disciples inherit eternal life. So I thought about these things over several months. I yearned more and more to EXPERIENCE Christianity. I wanted to KNOW if it was really true by experiencing it for myself. I was full of fear and turmoil, but one day I made my decision. I told the Lord if I ever missed even one meal I would quit, because it doesn’t work. I told him that I would be his disciple, according to his terms, for the rest of my life. Little did I know the adventure I was about to begin. I quit my job. I gave away everything that wouldn’t fit into a Ford Focus car, and I began to live by faith. I became a street preacher and I traveled the southern half of the United States. I never have missed a meal nor have I been stranded anywhere yet. I pray and I trust God for all my needs being met. This is what Jesus did. Why does Jesus call us to be disciples?

Matthew 6:24-34 “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why do you take thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore if God clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, what shall we drink? or, wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your Heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

Jesus said that you cannot serve God and mammon. Do you realize that people who work jobs or have a business are working mainly for themselves? Jesus calls it serving mammon. Why do you work? To have a house, a car, kids, clothes, expensive food, vacations, pay bills, etc. It is all mainly for you! Jesus doesn’t want you to seek these things. Jesus wants your time freed up so you can seek God’s kingdom and have his righteousness. Today, people think that they are already in God’s kingdom and have his righteousness. So they don’t seek for what they think they already have. This is in direct contradiction to Jesus’ command to be his disciple. So to be a disciple is to get free of the world’s entanglements, to live by faith, and to seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness.

In March of 2010 I did this. I quit my job, I gave up everything I had, and I began to live with Jesus Christ as his disciple. We all have twenty-four hours in a day. I can now devote them to Jesus and to do his work in the earth. Thus began the greatest time of growth and learning of my entire Christian experience. I began to know Jesus and Jesus began to know me.

CHAPTER 3

Since I spent so much time with Jesus and in studying his words, I began to see things that I never saw before. Jesus’ words became very real to me. Then, as I read the remainder of the New Testament, I began to notice something else. The books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, and Revelation were all in perfect agreement. But the writings of Paul were saying the exact opposite of what I read in these books. As time went on, and my eyes were opened more and more, I saw that nearly EVERYTHING that Paul wrote was the exact opposite of what Jesus Christ said, taught, and commanded. I had been taught in Bible College that the Bible is progressive and that what Jesus taught was just for that time. Now we are in the church age, and the epistles are written to us. Then I noticed that only Paul’s epistles progressed any. Romans through Hebrews has an entirely different message and tone than the rest of the Bible. If the Bible is progressive, then how come James, Peter, John, Jude, and Jesus didn’t progress any. Oh yes, Jesus in the Book of Revelation still said what he always said, not what Paul said. They are all contemporaries of Paul, but only Paul progressed anywhere. Then one day I was SHOCKED when my eyes were opened to these verses.

Matthew 28:19-20 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the earth. Amen.”

When my eyes were opened to these verses, I remember that I was astonished and in awe for several days thereafter. This is the great commission. The very last command of Jesus Christ to his disciples. Jesus is about to ascend into heaven and sit on the right hand of God. Jesus is telling them what to do in the “church age”. He told them to teach all nations and to baptize them. What were they to teach the new disciples in the “church age”? TO OBEY ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU! Jesus said that everything that he had taught the disciples to obey, was now to be taught to the new disciples in the “church age”! Everything that Jesus said in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John was to be taught to the church to obey! Jesus did not mention any new revelation or new gospel. They were to teach the church EXACTLY what Jesus had taught them. Later, I got another SHOCK!

Galatians 2:7-8 “But contrariwise, when they saw the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; (for he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)”.

Paul testified that there are TWO GOSPELS. Peter was entrusted with the gospel of the circumcision, and Paul with the gospel of the Gentiles. Two completely different gospels! I NEVER heard THAT taught in Bible College, or anywhere else, in my nearly 37 years of being a Christian.

I found an interesting verse in Revelation 2:2 “I know thy works, and thy labor, and thy patience, and how you cannot bear with them that are evil: and you have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars.”

It interested me greatly that to the church in Ephesus, the only one of these seven churches which was founded by Paul, that Jesus would say these words to them. “You have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars.” This is the ONLY place in the entire Bible that we find these words. Nothing is in the Bible by accident, but by design.

I began to remember that in church history the Bible has changed. The Jews apparently believed the books of the Apocrypha to be a part of the Old Testament, but the Jews of Palestine had rejected them by Jesus’ time. Why did God allow these books to be included and then excluded? Whether they are good or bad, Why did God, who rules heaven and earth, allow a time when bad books were in the Bible, or good books excluded from the Bible? And why have the books of the Apocrypha been in out out of the Bible in the past 2,000 years? The only answer that I can come up with is that men make errors, and God allows them to make these errors.

It is a historical fact that the Bible has been different than it is now. In the Catholic Bible some, not all, of the books of the Apocrypha are still included in it. And who revised the modern translation of the Catholic Bible? For the most part it was protestant scholars, who also swore to the accuracy of the text.

How did our modern Bible come into being? Groups of theologians got appointed by a pope or a king, and decided what books are inspired by God, and what books are not inspired of God. Since it is a historical fact that other groups of theologians in history made mistakes about which books belong in the Bible, and GOD ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN, how do I know that the theologians who had the final say concerning Paul’s epistles, did not make mistakes too?

Nothing less than my eternal salvation depends on knowing the truth about Paul’s epistles. Why? Paul taught a different gospel than the one that Jesus taught. Paul taught the exact opposite of Jesus on nearly every subject. I have to reject the teachings and commands of Jesus in order to obey Paul. So either I am to obey Paul, and reject the teachings of Jesus, or I am to reject Paul, and all his epistles.

This book later deals with nearly all of the differences in what Paul and Jesus taught.
Jesus said that the scripture cannot be broken, and not one jot or one tittle shall pass from the law until it is fulfilled, So I know that our Old Testament is flawless. Jesus spoke this of the Old Testament without the Apocrypha books in it. It is God’s Word. Genesis through Malachi are the unadulterated Word of God. In over 36 years of study I find no error at all with Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, and Revelation.

I call into question Romans through Hebrews, plus the parts of the book of Acts about Paul. Peter warned us of Paul’s epistles. Peter was far too wise to attack Paul directly, so he began with kind words.

“And account that the long suffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you; AS ALSO IN ALL HIS EPISTLES, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, SEEING YOU KNOW THESE THINGS BEFORE, BEWARE UNLESS YOU ALSO, BEING LED AWAY WITH THE ERROR OF THE WICKED, FALL FROM YOUR OWN STEADFASTNESS.” (2 Peter 3:15-17).

Such a strong warning from the Apostle Peter decided me. I would put Paul on trial for being a false apostle. The only reference source allowed is the King James Bible with the Thompson Chain Reference Study Material. His accusation is of being a false apostle. The testimonies of the King James Bible itself will declare him either innocent or guilty of this charge. If he proves to be innocent, then no harm will have been done, and you will have been better prepared to defend the Bible by doing it. The remainder of this book will present the evidence found, and gathered from the Bible itself.

Before I begin, I want to bring up an issue. The Apostle Peter warned of the error of the wicked. Do you believe in sinless perfection? That is, that you are perfect and do not sin? You are not saved because your sins, past, present, and future, are forgiven; but because you no longer sin. Your spirit is perfect and recreated in Christ, and you cannot and do not sin any longer. Do you believe and teach that doctrine? Do you consider it sound doctrine, or heresy? Read Romans chapter 7. Twice Paul says it is not him that sins, but sin that dwells in him, sins. The sin he committed was not him doing it, but sin that dwells in him does it. That is sinless perfection. With his mind he served the law of God, but with his body the law of sin, and it was sin in him that sinned. He didn’t need forgiveness, because it wasn’t he that sinned. There was no personal sin for Paul to deal with.

No wonder the Apostle John said, “My little children, let no man deceive you, he who does righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous, but he who sins is of the devil.” Whose doctrine do you think the Apostle John was correcting and warning against?

CHAPTER 4

In this chapter I will quote some statements about Paul, or made by Paul himself, and compare it to other parts of the Bible.

Matthew 12:36-37 “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give an account thereof in the day of judgement. For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.”

James 1:26 “If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridles not his tongue, but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.”

1 Peter 4:11 “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; If any man minister, let him do it as the ability which God gives: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

Acts 23:3 “Then Paul said unto him, God shall smite you, you whited wall: for you sit to judge me after the law, and command me to be smitten contrary to the law?”

Acts 15:39-40 “And the contention was so strong between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus; and Paul chose Silas, and departed being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God.”

Galatians 5:12 “I would that they were even cut off that trouble you.”

1 Corinthians 7:6 “But I speak this by permission, and not by commandment.”

1 Corinthians 7:12 “BUT TO THE REST SPEAK I, AND NOT THE LORD: If any brother has a wife that believes not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.”

1 Corinthians 7:25 “Now concerning virgins I HAVE NO COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD: YET I GIVE MY JUDGEMENT, as one that has obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.”

2 Corinthians 11:16-19 “I say again, let no man think me a fool: if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little. THAT WHICH I SPEAK, I SPEAK IT NOT AFTER THE LORD, BUT AS IT WERE FOOLISHLY, IN THIS CONFIDENCE OF BOASTING. Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also, seeing you yourselves are wise.”

2 Corinthians 11:1 “Would to God you could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.”

2 Corinthians 11:10 “As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of my boasting in the regions of Achaia.”

2 Corinthians 11:21 “I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit wherein soever any is bold, (I speak foolishly) I am bold also.”

2 Corinthians 11:23 “Are they ministers of Christ? (I SPEAK AS A FOOL) I am more: in labors more abundant, in prisons more frequent, in death often.”

2 Corinthians 12:11 “I AM BECOME A FOOL IN GLORYING: you have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.”

Matthew 5:22 “But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgement: and whosoever shall say to his brother, raca, shall be in danger of the council, BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL SAY, YOU FOOL, SHALL BE IN DANGER OF HELL FIRE.”

1 Corinthians 15:36 “YOU FOOL, that which you sow is not quickened, except it die.”

Galatians 3:1 “O foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ has been evidently set forth, crucified among you?”

Galatians 3:3 “Are you so foolish? Having begun in the spirit, are you now made perfect by the flesh?”

Matthew 5:37 “But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these comes from evil.”

2 Corinthians 11:31 “The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed forever more, knows that I lie not.”

1 Timothy 2:7 “Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ and I lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.”

God’s Word is infallible, and it is perfect. Paul’s epistles are considered to be the perfect, infallible Word of God. Yet in them Paul openly confesses that what he speaks is not God’s Word; he bad mouths people and brawls; he rejects Jesus’ warning to not say “You fool”, and is in danger of hell fire; He confesses that he speaks as a fool speaks; he boasts; he asks people to bear with him in his folly; and he uses oaths, which Jesus said comes from evil. How can any of this be God’s Word?

CHAPTER 5

Acts 8:1-3 “And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering into every house, and arresting men and women, and committed them to prison.”

There was a great persecution in Jerusalem. The Jews wanted to put an end to the Christians, so they tried to arrest them all and to put them to death.

Acts 9:1-9 “And Saul yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, and desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus, and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? And he said, Who are you Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom you persecute: It is hard for you to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what will you have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told you what you must do. And the men that journeyed with them stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight; neither did he eat or drink.”

This is the original version of what happened. We accept this into evidence of what Paul’s conversion experience was like. When Paul was later arrested in Jerusalem, he gave this very same version in his testimony before the Jews in the temple.

Acts 22:7-10 “And I fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? and I answered, Who are you Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you persecute. And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spoke to me. And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go unto Damascus; and there it shall be told you of all things which are appointed for you to do.”

In the original version the men who were with Paul heard a voice, but saw no man. (Acts 9:7). In the latter version Paul said these men saw the light, “but they heard NOT the voice of him that spoke to me.” (Acts 22:9). In both versions, Jesus told Paul to go into Damascus and it would be told him there what he must do. In both versions only Paul fell to the ground, the other men remained standing. Now when Paul gives his testimony to King Agrippa, he says, “And when we were all fallen to the earth.” And now Jesus doesn’t tell him to go into Damascus, but Jesus personally tells him what he should do right there in the road. Jesus adds, “And in those things in the which I will appear unto you”, promising to appear to Paul on future occasions, to tell him more things.

Acts 26:14-18 “And when we were all fallen unto the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the pricks. And I said, Who are you Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom you persecute. But rise, and stand upon your feet: for I have appeared unto you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of these things which you have seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto you; delivering you from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send you, to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”

In the previous two versions, Jesus said none of this added part. In the original version it was the disciple Ananias who Jesus told “Go your way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: for I will show him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.” (Acts 9:15-16).

In Paul’s first testimony, Ananias told him, “The God of our fathers has chosen you, that you should know his will, AND SEE THAT JUST ONE, and should hear the voice of his mouth. For you shall be his witness unto all men of what you have seen and heard.” (Acts 22:14-15).

When people change their testimony in a court of law, it is called perjury, and the testimony is no longer admissible. I can reach no other conclusion than that Paul lied giving his testimony. He changed his testimony several times. The original version had to be his own testimony to Luke, who wrote the book of Acts. So the entire thing all came from the mouth of Paul, and he kept changing what actually happened. How can I accept what Paul says as being God’s Word, when it is obvious that Paul is lying.

Paul gave more testimony in 1 Corinthians 9:1 “Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord?”

1 Corinthians 15:8 “And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.”

Here Paul says he has SEEN Jesus. In the three versions of Paul’s conversion experience, he said he only saw a light.

Let us look at appearances of Jesus after his resurrection.

Matthew 28:9 “And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying. All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshiped him.”

Matthew 28:16-17 “Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, unto a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshiped him: but some doubted.”

Luke 24:13-16 “And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And they talked together of all these things which had happened. And it came to pass, that while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were blinded that they should not know him.”

Luke 24:36-40 “And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and said unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are you troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your heart? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones, as you see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet.”

John 20:14 “And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.”

John 20:19-20 “Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.”

John 20:26-27 “And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then said he to Thomas, Reach hither your finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.”

John 21:4 “But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.”

Revelation 1:13-16 “And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were like a flame of fire; and his feet were like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shines in his strength.”

In all of these appearances Jesus was clearly seen and he looked human like. John “was in the spirit on the Lord’s day” and saw into the spirit realm. Even then, Jesus was clearly seen. In none of these appearances was there a “bright light brighter than the noon day sun.” In none of these appearances was there just a bright light and they could “see no man.” When the angel of the Lord appeared “His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.” (Matthew 28:3).

Paul said some things that might be helpful.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

Listen carefully to the interpretation to this parable.

Matthew 13:37-43 “He answered and said unto them, he that sowed good seed is the Son of man; and the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; the enemy that sowed them is the devil; and the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of the world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”

This is a parable about the kingdom of God. Both good seed and tares grow side by side in the kingdom. “And they shall gather out of his KINGDOM all things that offend, and them which do iniquity.” These are all professing Christians. How can this be? To help you understand a little better, Jesus had a flock of twelve disciples. All of them followed Jesus, were his close associates, they lived by faith, preached the gospel, healed the sick, etc. Yet one of them was a devil, Judas Iscariot. The Son of man sowed the good seed. Here is what I do not yet understand, yet it is right here before our eyes. The tares, the children of the wicked one, WERE SOWN BY THE DEVIL. The children of the kingdom had a conversion experience. It was a TRUE conversion experience. The children of the wicked one ALSO HAD A CONVERSION EXPERIENCE, but it was a FALSE one. So what this is saying is, that churches are full of people that have had conversion experiences. Some are true and some are false. Some are the children of the kingdom and some are the children of the wicked one. They are growing side by side in church. All those who do iniquity are children of the devil. One day they will be gathered out of God’s kingdom and cast into a furnace of fire.

Jesus spoke of a church like this.

Revelation 3:1, 4 “And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things says he that has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name that you live, and are dead. You have a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.”

So here they grew side by side in the church of Sardis, most were dead, and a few were still alive.

So was Paul’s conversion experience a true one or a false one? Did he really meet Jesus in the light, or was it satan as an angel of light? Was he planted by the Son of man? or, was he planted by the evil one? Does it sound far fetched? Judas was Jesus’ disciple. Judas left all to follow Jesus; he lived by faith; he healed the sick, cleansed the lepers, and raised the dead, just as the other disciples; he stayed with Jesus unto the end; he suffered persecution; he was so much like the other disciples, that when after living with the other disciples for over three years, at the last supper, when Jesus said, “One of you will betray me,” they had no clue it was Judas, and each said, “Is it I?”

As far as anyone was concerned, Judas was a fine Christian man. Yet it turned out that Judas was a devil, and the son of perdition. Paul had nothing on Judas. Judas performed all sorts of miracles, signs, and wonders. Judas paid dearly to be a disciple of Jesus. He suffered persecution and homelessness. He left home, lands, and family to follow Jesus. Judas was a man of faith and was Jesus’ trusted treasurer, keeping the money bag. Jesus said false prophets come to you as wolves in sheep’s clothing. (Matthew 7:15).

So don’t tell me Paul couldn’t have been a false apostle. He wasn’t much different than Judas, and Judas had EVERYBODY convinced that he was a true disciple of Jesus, even the 11 apostles. If Judas could have deceived and tricked the 11 apostles, then Paul could have done it too. Remember that the 11 apostles were 100% deceived by Judas. So if they had been deceived by Judas while in the presence of Jesus Christ, then certainly they could have been deceived by Paul when Jesus was no longer physically with them. And If the apostles could be deceived, then how much more ordinary theologians who decided what books belong in our New Testament. Truth cuts, hurts, and wounds, but truth also delivers, heals and sets us free.

Matthew 7:22-23 “Many will say unto me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you who work iniquity.”

A devil like Judas could do EVERYTHING just like all of the true disciples. When the plants are young, wheat and tares cannot be seen as having any differences. At the beginning Peter gave the right hand of fellowship to Paul. After many years of seeing the results of Paul’s epistles, and how they brought destruction to the lives of many people, Peter warned us very strongly about them.

CHAPTER 6

What is the gospel? It is the gospel according to Saint Matthew, the gospel according to Saint Mark, the gospel according to Saint Luke, and the gospel according to Saint John.
The gospel is “the gospel of Jesus Christ the Son of God.” (Mark 1:1).
It is every word of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The gospel is the life story of Jesus Christ.

Luke 1:1-4 “For as much as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed by us. Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the Word. It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto you in order, most excellent Theophilus. That you may know the certainty of those things, wherein you have been instructed.”

The disciples of Jesus Christ were his witnesses to tell the world what happened during his life and ministry.

Luke 24:46-48 “And he said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day; and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things.”

Luke gives his own concise definition of what the gospel is.

Acts 1:1-3 “The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: To whom he also showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.”

The qualifications of an apostle were given in Acts 1:21-23 “Wherefore of these men which have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John, until that same day that he was taken up from among us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection. And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabes, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.”

Notice that Paul did not meet these qualifications to be an apostle. Paul was not with them at all, ever. Paul NEVER followed Jesus and could not possibly be a witness. Paul had witnessed NOTHING.

So, the apostles were to give witness of what they had seen and heard, from John’s baptism, unto the ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven. This is the gospel. It is everything about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Every word of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John is the gospel of Jesus Christ the Son of God. Not one word more, or one word less is the complete gospel. Jesus told people to repent and believe the gospel from the very beginning of his ministry.

Mark 1:14-15 “Now after that John was put into prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent and believe the gospel.”

How could they do this? They had to HEAR the gospel before they could believe it. What modern Christians claim the gospel to be had not yet happened! Yet Jesus commanded the people to believe the gospel. What Paul claimed the gospel to be had not yet happened either.

1 Corinthians 15:1-5 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also you have received, and wherein you stand; By which also you are saved, if you keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless you have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve.”

{I hate to nitpick, but Paul leaves me no other option. Jesus was first seen of Mary Magdalene (John 20:11-12). Then he was seen of Cleopas and Simon on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35). then he was seen of the ten (John 20:24-25). Then he was seen of the eleven and they that were with them (Luke 24:8-11,33). How can what Paul says be God’s Word when he tells the gospel story incorrectly? He said the twelve. Did he not know that Judas was the traitor and hanged himself? Paul told us that he was not taught the gospel by men, but by revelation of Jesus Christ. If this were true, Jesus would have told Paul the facts correctly. After all, Jesus was the one who appeared to all these people. Jesus did not first appear to Peter and then to the twelve.}.

At the beginning of Jesus’ ministry it was approximately three years before Jesus would be crucified, die for our sins, be buried, and rise again the third day. Yet Jesus preached the gospel and commanded people to believe the gospel. The gospel that Jesus preached was the gospel of the KINGDOM OF GOD. It could be believed from the very beginning of his ministry. Every word that Jesus Christ spoke was the gospel of the kingdom of God. Almost every parable that Jesus taught started with “The kingdom of God shall be likened unto…. And, What shall we liken the kingdom of heaven unto? Unto what shall we compare it?”
Again, Luke defined the gospel as being, “ALL that Jesus began to do and to teach.” (Acts 1:1).

Jesus the king came to establish his kingdom, and he taught about his kingdom. Jesus said that the kingdom of God is within you.

Luke 17:20-21 “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, the kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, Lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Jesus admitted to Pontius Pilate that he was a king and that his kingdom is not of this world.

John 18:36-37 “Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world my servants would fight, that I should not be delivered unto the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence. Pilate said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, You say that I am a king: to this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Everyone that is of the truth hears my voice.”

Jesus preached the kingdom of God that is within you, and the kingdom of heaven that is not of this world. The laws of the kingdom are every word, teaching, and command that Jesus spoke. It is every red letter in the New Testament. Many people say that Jesus taught the law of Moses and the prophets. No, he did not. Jesus clearly stated that the law and the prophets were until John the Baptist, and since that time the kingdom of God is preached.

Luke 16:16 “The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presses into it.”

Matthew 4:17 “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Matthew 11:12-13 “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the law prophesied until John.”
The gospel of the kingdom of God, which includes all the words, teaching, and commands of King Jesus, are the covenant of salvation.

Matthew 26:26-28 “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink all of it: for this is the blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”

Luke 22:20 “Likewise the cup after supper, saying, this cup is the New Testament in my blood, which is shed for you.”

There are blessings and curses in this new covenant just as there were in the old covenant. Many more curses than people realize, you just need eyes to see them. The new covenant is a covenant of law and order, just as the old covenant is a covenant of law and order.
Today a FALSE grace gospel is being preached, and people are being told that no matter what they do, or how they behave, they are still saved and going to heaven. This is lawlessness. This is anarchy. It is open rebellion against King Jesus and Father God. This false grace gospel is a lie. It is the antiChrist gospel, because it is anti, or against the teachings and the commands of Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Peter warned of it. Speaking of ALL Paul’s epistles, Peter said this, 2 Peter 3:16-17 “As also in ALL HIS EPISTLES, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware unless you also being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.”

Here is what King Jesus said about the kingdom of God and salvation.

Luke 6:46 “And why do you call me, Lord, Lord, and do not do the things which I say?”

John 15:14 “You are my friends, IF YOU DO WHATSOEVER I COMMAND YOU.”

John 14:21-24 “He that has my commandments, and obeys them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. He that loves me not obeys not my sayings: and the word which you hear is not my own, but the Father which sent me.”

Matthew 7:21-27 “Not everyone that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. Therefore anyone who hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And everyone that hears these sayings of mine and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.”

Matthew 10:28 “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

John 5:28-29 “Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.”
Do not believe the lie that what Jesus taught, said and commanded is not for us today.
The last command of Jesus to his apostles was this, Matthew 28:19-20 “Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Notice that Jesus did not command to establish his church based upon some NEW REVELATION. NO. He commanded the church to obey ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU. That is every single thing that Jesus commanded his apostles. The message of Jesus Christ is the message for the church today. There is no new revelation.
In AD 96, which was 29 years after Paul had his head chopped off, and had written all of his epistles, Jesus appeared to the Apostle John on the isle of Patmos. Notice that the message of Jesus Christ had not changed or progressed at all. It is still the same message. There is no mention nor hint of Paul’s revelation. It simply is not there. Jesus still said that salvation is based upon works of faith on the part of every person. Each person will be saved or damned based on their own works. To enter heaven, it is required to obey the commandments of God.

Revelation 3:15-19 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich, and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.”

Revelation 22:12-16 “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie. I Jesus have sent my angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and offspring of David; the bright and morning star.”

Jesus was still preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God. It is the one and only Everlasting Gospel. Wake up! Anoint your eyes with eye salve that you may see. Be zealous therefore and repent. Otherwise you will be vomited by Jesus into hell, and the lake that burns with fire and brimstone. (Revelation 3:15-19).

CHAPTER 7

Paul preached and taught the gospel of grace.

Acts 20:24 “But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself so that I might finish my course with joy and the ministry which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.”

How did Paul get his gospel of the grace of God?

Galatians 1:6-12 “I marvel that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel that was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Paul claims that he received his gospel by revelation of Jesus Christ, He did not receive it from man, neither was he taught it. So Paul was not saved as we are. Jesus sent his apostles to go and preach the gospel to all the world.

On the day of Pentecost Peter stood up to preach, and 3,000 souls were added unto their number.

Acts 2:38-39 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.”

All of the disciples preached the Word and they preached Christ.

Acts 8:4-6 “Therefore they that were scattered abroad went everywhere preaching the Word. Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.”

Jesus ordained his twelve apostles to go into all the world, to preach the gospel to every person. They were to make disciples by teaching them to obey all things whatsoever that Jesus had commanded them. Then the new disciples would also go out into all the world to preach the gospel to every person, and make even more disciples.

Yet Paul claimed that Jesus made a special exception just for him, and that he appeared to him, and preached a DIFFERENT gospel to him, and that was how he got saved. Remember that Paul said he did not receive his gospel from men, nor was he taught it, but by revelation of Jesus Christ.

Galatians 1:11-12 “But I certify you brethren that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

So according to Paul, Jesus did not send a man to preach the gospel to him, nor to teach it to him. Jesus did not reach out to him through either apostle, or evangelist, or disciple; with the gospel entrusted to the twelve apostles, (I include Matthias). According to Paul, Jesus appeared to him on the Damascus road and told him that he would appear unto him again, to tell him more things. And the gospel that Jesus gave Paul was an entirely DIFFERENT gospel than what was entrusted to the twelve apostles.

Acts 26:13-16 “At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the pricks. And I said, who are you, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom you persecute. But rise, and stand upon your feet: for I have appeared unto you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of these things which you have seen, AND OF THOSE THINGS IN THE WHICH I WILL APPEAR UNTO YOU.”

Galatians 2:6-8 “But of those who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it makes no matter to me: God accepts no man’s person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me: but contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcised was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; (for he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles).”

Paul by his own testimony stated that Peter had the gospel of the circumcision, and that Peter had the gospel of the uncircumcised; two entirely different gospels! Yet the facts prove that Peter first preached the gospel to the Gentiles, and it was the very same gospel that he preached to the Jews. So Paul obviously got his facts mixed up. (Acts 10:1-48).

Acts 11:1-18 “And the apostles and the brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the Word of God. And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him. Saying, you went into men uncircumcised, and did eat with them. But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying, I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, a certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me: Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw four footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter, slay and eat. But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean has at any time entered into my mouth. But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God has cleansed, that call not common. And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven. And, behold, immediately there were already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me. And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man’s house: and he showed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; who will tell you words, whereby you and all your house shall be saved. And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. Then remembered I the Word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. For as much as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then has God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.”

Paul demonstrated a total disrespect for the apostles and the elders in Jerusalem, by saying, “whatsoever they were, it makes no difference to me.”

Paul also was not receptive and he was unteachable to EVERYTHING that they said, for Paul testified, “for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added NOTHING to me.”

Galatians 2:6 “But of those who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it makes no matter to me for God accepts no man’s person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me.”

So let us get the facts straight from Paul’s very own testimony.

#1 Paul did not get saved by hearing the gospel of the kingdom of God that the twelve apostles, evangelists, and disciples preached.

#2 Paul did not receive his gospel from man, nor was he taught it.

#3 Jesus made a special appearance to Paul, and Paul was saved by hearing a DIFFERENT gospel, straight from the lips of Jesus.

#4 Jesus promised to appear to Paul again, to confer more of this NEW and DIFFERENT gospel unto him.

#5 Paul did not confer with flesh and blood, until three years later, he spent fifteen days with Peter, and then fourteen years after, he went to Jerusalem to see the apostles and elders.

Galatians 1:16-18 “To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen: immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.”

Galatians 2:1 “Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.”

#6 Paul showed disrespect to the apostle’s authority, and said they added NOTHING to him.

Galatians 2:6 “But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it makes no matter to me: God accepts no man’s person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me.”

#7 Paul stated plainly that his gospel was the gospel of the Gentiles, or the Gospel of grace; and it was an entirely different gospel than the gospel entrusted to Peter.

#8 Facts prove that Peter first preached the gospel to the Gentiles, not Paul. Peter preached the same gospel to the Gentiles as he did to the Jews. And “while Peter yet spoke these words, the Holy Ghost fell on them that heard the Word.” (Acts 10:44).

The Gentiles got saved hearing the gospel that Jesus Christ entrusted to Peter. This demonstrates clearly that there was no need for a different gospel. The one and only “EVERLASTING GOSPEL” saves EVERYONE who believes it.

Revelation 14:6 “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.”

Both Jews and Gentiles got saved equally, believing the same gospel!

All of this sounds very familiar. Paul claimed that Jesus appeared to him in private to give him a NEW gospel. So did Joseph Smith claim that Jesus appeared unto him, and showed him where to find the Book of Mormon, which is another gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So did Mr. Charles Taze Russell claim that Jesus appeared unto him in private, to found the Jehovah’s Witnesses.

I met a homeless man in San Diego, Ca. He changed his name to Paul, and he preached Paul’s epistles in Balboa Park. He saw demons standing in front of him, and spoke to them, while I watched him. He said that he had ascended into the third heaven as Paul did, and he saw God. He said that his eyes were blue flames of fire. He also said he was one of the two witnesses in the Book of Revelation. I believe that Paul himself believed all of these things, and that he was sincere. However, I do not believe his message or his testimony.

I believe in one gospel only, that was personally entrusted by Jesus Christ to the twelve apostles. In the Book of Revelation only one gospel is mentioned.
Jesus also praised the church of Ephesus, a church which Paul founded, “and you have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars.” (Revelation 2:2).

CHAPTER 8

Galatians 2:6 “But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it makes no matter to me: God accepts no man’s person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me.”

Paul says that God accepts no man’s person. REALLY?!!

Matthew 19:27-28 “Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that you which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”

Luke 22:28-30 “You are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father has appointed unto me: that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”

Paul was referring to men who will will one day be his judge! The twelve apostles will sit on twelve thrones judging the the twelve tribes of Israel. Paul was a Jew. Those men who Paul set at naught and who added NOTHING to him are his judges. I have heard such silly things said. Many say that Paul is who will take Judas’ place among the twelve apostles. Jesus clearly said the twelve were men present before him, who had forsaken all to follow him, and who had continued with him in his temptations. Paul did none of this.

In Acts 1:20-26 the apostles clearly stated that the conditions of being an apostle were, “to have accompanied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John, unto the same day that he was taken up from us, must be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.”

Matthias was chosen to take Judas’ place. Matthias was qualified to be an apostle, and Paul was not qualified to be an apostle.

Matthew 16:17-19 “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed are you Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood have not revealed it unto you, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto you, that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church: and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

People twist this and rewrite it today. They are guilty of doing what the Jehovah’s Witnesses do. When you go to the Greek and Hebrew, and choose other versions of the Bible, you are just rewriting the Bible to say what you want it to say. This is what Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses and other cults do.

I accept my King James Bible at face value. At least be as manly enough to accept the King James Bible as King James was. It is a historical fact that King James was a homosexual, yet when the translators finished his Bible, and read it to him, he demanded no changes made even though it condemned his sin of homosexuality.

Peter is the rock upon which the church is built. Peter was given the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and he still has them. Nowhere are these keys mentioned again. I tell you Paul is wrong. God DOES accept the person of men. He does accept the person of the twelve apostles, and especially Peter.

1 Corinthians 10-13 “Now I beseech you brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement. For it has been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. Now every one of you says, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were you baptized in the name of Paul?”

Here we see Paul discourage people from following Christ directly or from following Peter.

1 Corinthians 4:16 “Wherefore I beseech you, be followers of me.” 1 Corinthians 11:1 “Be followers of me, as I also am of Christ.”

Here Paul clearly said that we are to follow him and not to follow Christ directly. Paul is to be the middleman, much as a Catholic priest is a middle man. Just as I follow Christ, you follow me. Those are very dangerous words.

Galatians 1:8-9 “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, now say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed.”

We have already established the fact that Paul’s gospel is completely different than Peter’s gospel. So here Paul is telling the Galatians that if anyone preach the gospel of the kingdom of God unto them, let him be accursed. If Peter, James, John, or anyone else, preach the gospel of the kingdom of God, that Jesus Christ preached, and entrusted to his twelve apostles, let him be accursed.

CHAPTER 9

We have already seen two places where Paul changed his testimony. Here is another one.
Galatians 1:17-19 “Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days. But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.”

Paul was converted in Damascus. Here he says that he DID NOT go up to Jerusalem, but went into Arabia, and RETURNED AGAIN unto Damascus. Paul said, “Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days, but other of the apostles SAW I NONE BUT JAMES THE LORD’S BROTHER.”

Acts 26:20 “But showed first unto them of Damascus, AND AT JERUSALEM, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.”

Here Paul said he started at Damascus. He does not mention Arabia. And now he says that he DID go up to Jerusalem, For what purpose? To preach. He now mentions no return trip to Damascus either. What actually happened?

Acts 9:19;23 “And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Paul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus. And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him.”

How long was Paul at Damascus? Certain days. After that many days were fulfilled. This cannot be construed into three years! Where did Paul go to next?

Acts 9:25-30 “Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket. And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple. But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had spoken boldly at Damascus in the name of the Jesus. And he was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem. And he spoke boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him. Which when the brethren knew, they brought him down to Caesaria, and sent him forth to Tarsus.”

Paul testified that he went into Arabia. He did not. He said that he returned to Damascus. He did not. He said that he did not go up to Jerusalem to the apostles who were before him. He DID go up to Jerusalem to the apostles who were before him. He said that he only saw Peter and James the Lord’s brother, but none of the other apostles. Not true. He saw ALL of the apostles, and was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem. Paul told King Agrippa that after going to Jerusalem, he went to all the coasts of Judaea. He did not. He passed through Caesarea and took a ship to Tarsus. We next see him in Antioch.

What do habitual liars always say? I’m telling the truth, I lie not, believe me.

2 Corinthians 11:31 “The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knows that I lie not.”

In Galatians 1:16-19 Paul had just told some very big lies and immediately he follows it with, “The things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.”
He just used an oath saying that before God he lied not. Remember that Jesus said to let your Yes, be yes; and your No, no. Whatsoever is more than these comes from evil. (Matthew 5:37).

This is the third witness of Paul telling a series of lies. He was a habitual liar.

What of 2 Corinthians 12:1-2 about Paul being caught up to the third heaven? of having a thorn in the flesh? of Jesus speaking to him? After hearing all of Paul’s lies, I flat out do not believe him. His testimony has proven to be very unreliable.

CHAPTER 10

I want to take a short break from discussing Paul. The following is a grouping of scripture, to present a gospel message, from the gospel of the kingdom of God.

“And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin who was espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for you have found favor with God and, behold, you shall conceive in your womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call his name JESUS. Then Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, the Holy Ghost shall come upon you, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of you shall be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:26,27,30,31,34,35).

But while he thought on these things, behold the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, fear not to take unto you Mary your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a Son, and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all of this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, Behold a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: and knew her not until she had brought forth her firstborn Son: and he called his name JESUS.” (Matthew 1:20-25).

“And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for him at the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior, which is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2;7-11).

“And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, then he took him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now let your servant depart in peace, according to your word: for my eyes have seen your salvation; which you have prepared for before the face of all people; a light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.” (Luke 2:25-32).

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:1, 14).

“The next day John saw Jesus coming unto him, and said, Behold the lamb of God, which takes away the sins of the world.” (John 1:29).

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus said unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto you, you must be born again. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; that the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him shall not be condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3;3-7,14-18).

“And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him unto the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him, and the third day he shall rise again.”(Matthew 20:17-19).

“And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take. And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.” (Mark 15:24-25).

“This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulcher that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.” (Luke 23:52-53).

“Saying the Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon. And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and said unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are you troubled? And why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones, as you see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet.” (Luke 24:34,36-39).

“He that has my commandments and obeys them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. If a man loves me, he will obey my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our home with him. He that loves me not obeys not my sayings: and the word which you hear is not mine, but the Father which sent me.” (John 14:21,23,24).

“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they might have right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, sorcerers, and whore-mongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.”(Revelation 22:12-15).

“Now when they heard this they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter, and the rest of the apostles, men and brethren, what shall we do? Then said Peter unto them, Repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, save yourselves from this untoward generation. Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.” (Acts 2:37-41).

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write: these things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God: I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would that you were cold or hot: so then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth. Because you say , I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing: and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich: and white raiment that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear: and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and sup with him, and he with me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Revelation 3: 14-22).

CHAPTER 11

Paul’s gospel and Jesus’ gospel differ concerning righteousness. Paul claimed that we are made righteous without any works on our part. Jesus taught that we are made righteous by our works.

Romans 3:26-28 “To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness; that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believes in Jesus. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.”

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are you saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works lest any man should boast.”

Matthew 19:16-19 “And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, why call me good? There is none good but one, that is, God: But if you will enter into life, keep the commandments. He said unto him, Which? Jesus said, You shall do no murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not bear false witness, honor your father and mother: and, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city,”

Matthew 12:36-37 “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgement. For by your words you shall be justified and by your words you shall be condemned.”

Paul said Abraham proved we are justified by faith without works. James, who is in complete agreement with Jesus, said, Abraham proved that we are justified by works. Notice that Paul and James are 100% opposed to one another, and that, in speaking of the very same scripture.

Romans 4:1-5 “What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, has found? For if Abraham were justified by works, he has whereof to glory: but not before God. For what says the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that works is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that works not, but believes on him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”

James 2:20-24 “But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he offered Isaac his son upon the altar? See how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which says, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the friend of God. You see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.”
==========================
Paul made up his own definition of love! Jesus and John the beloved disciple, made it clear what the definition of love is. Paul in his new definition of what love is, not once mentions obeying God’s commands.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 “Charity suffers long, and is kind; charity envies not; charity vaults not itself, is not puffed up. Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil: but rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth: bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

John 14:21-24 “He that has my commandments and obeys them, he it is that loves me; and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. Judas said unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, How is it that you will manifest yourself unto us, and not unto the world? Jesus answered and said unto him, if a man love me, he will obey my words; and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loves me not obeys not my sayings: and the word which you hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.”

1 John 5:2-3 “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God; when we love God and obey his commandments.”
=================================
Paul commanded his disciples to work secular jobs to provide for themselves and their families. Jesus commanded his disciples to quit secular jobs, to leave businesses, and to live by faith alone. The purpose was to free us from life’s burdens and distractions; so that we can seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness, and to work for God full-time.

1 Timothy 5:8 “But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.”

Matthew 4:18-22 “And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he said unto them, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.”

Matthew 19:27-29 “Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed you; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that you which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife. or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”

Jesus taught to not serve money, but to serve God. Good Christian people today are very deceived. They think that they are serving God, but in reality they are serving themselves. They work jobs in order to have a house, cars, new clothes, expensive food, computers, televisions, cable, gifts for Christmas, vacations, go to restaurants, and on and on it goes. They do it all for themselves and their family. Most don’t even pay tithes or give to the poor. Jesus taught his disciples to give up all that they have. Not ten percent, but one hundred percent. And to live by prayer and faith alone.

Matthew 6:24-34 “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, what shall we drink? or, wherewithall shall we be clothed? (for after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) For your Heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.”

People only seek for what they don’t yet have. Since people today follow a false grace gospel, they think that they are already made righteous and belong to God’s kingdom; so they don’t seek after it. They totally ignore Jesus’ commands to his disciples.

Paul also taught “For when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” (2 Thessalonians 3:10).

CHAPTER 12

Paul taught for disciples to have their own houses. Jesus taught his disciples to sell all their possessions, to live together, and to have all things in common. The apostles demonstrated this in the beginning of the Book of Acts.

1 Corinthians 11:22 “What? Have you not houses to eat and drink in? or, despise you the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.”

1 Timothy 3:4-5 “One that rules his own house well, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (for if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Timothy 3:12 “Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their houses well.”

1 Timothy 5:4,8 “But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to show piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.”

Acts 1:13-14 “And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.”

Acts 2:44-46 “And all that believed were together, and had all things in common; and sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. And they continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart.”

Acts 4:32,34,35 “And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them aught that the things which they possessed was his own; but they had all things in common. Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, and laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.”

Jesus taught that we are justified or condemned by our words. If we don’t bridle our tongues, our religion is vain. Paul, by his own confession, quoting his own words, spoke as a fool speaks and he boasted.

Matthew 12:36-37 “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgement. For by thy words you shall be justified, and by thy words you shall be condemned.”

James 1:26 “If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridles not his tongue, but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.”

2 Corinthians 11:1,16-18, 21,23 Would to God you could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. I say again, let no man think me a fool: if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little, that which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting. Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also. I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit wherein soever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also. Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.”

2 Corinthians 12:11 “I am become a fool in glorying; you have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest of the apostles., though I am nothing.”

Jesus said that deceit, pride, and foolishness are evil things that come from within and defile a man. Paul used deceit, boasted in pride, and spoke foolishly.

Mark 7:20-23 “And he said, that which comes out of the mouth, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of man, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, DECEIT, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, PRIDE, FOOLISHNESS: all these come from within, and defile the man.”

2 Corinthians 12:15-16 “And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you, though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved. But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.”

1 Corinthians 9:20-22 “And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; to them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”
===============================
Paul taught, and this by his own admission that it was himself speaking and not God, that divorce and remarriage are allowed for other reasons than just sexual immorality on the part of the woman. Jesus taught that marriage cannot be annulled for ANY reason, with the one exception of sexual immorality on the part of the woman.

1 Corinthians 7:12-15 “But to the rest SPEAK I, NOT THE LORD: if any brother has a wife that believes not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. And a woman which has a husband that believes not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now they are holy. But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God has called us to peace.”

1 Corinthians 7:27-28 “Are you bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? Seek not a wife. BUT AND IF YOU MARRY, YOU HAVE NOT SINNED. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh, but I spare you.”

Matthew 5:31-32 “It has been said, whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: but I say unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for fornication, causes her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery.”

Matthew 19:7-9 “They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He said unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, whosoever shall put away his wife, and marries another, commits adultery.”

Luke 16:18 “Whosoever puts away his wife, and marries another, commits adultery: and whosoever marries her that is put away from her husband commits adultery.”
================================
I take issue with something else that Paul said and confessed, “But to the rest speak I, and not the Lord.” Paul contradicts it later on.

1 Corinthians 7:14 “For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean, but now are they holy.”

John 10:36 “Say you of him, whom the Father has sanctified, and sent into the world, you blaspheme; because I said , I am the Son of God?” Only the Father can sanctify a person, not a man or a woman.

John 8:44 “You are of your Father the devil, and the lusts of your Father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the Father of it.”

John 6:70 “Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?”

Jesus clearly says that unbelievers are devils and are of their father the devil, and the works of their father they do. A believing husband or wife cannot sanctify a devil. If you don’t agree with me, then listen to Paul, he contradicts himself yet again.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 “Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what concord has Christ with Belial? or what part has he that believes with an infidel? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them: and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

Paul earlier said to remain married to an unbeliever, who is Belial, who is an idol, who is darkness, and who is unrighteousness. Not only that, but that the believer could sanctify or make holy that wicked person. That is impossible. Only the Father can sanctify a man or a woman through the blood of Jesus.

CHAPTER 13

Jesus said that only those chosen by his Father could come to Jesus. We do not choose him, but he chooses us. Paul taught that God wanted ALL men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Jesus did not pray for the entire world, but for them which the Father had given him, and for those who later would believe their words. Paul taught to pray for ALL men and that this is good and acceptable to God our Savior. Jesus said to pray for those who despitefully use you, and persecute you; and for the Lord to send laborers into his harvest.

John 6:65 “And he said, therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.”

John 15:16 “You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

John 17:9,20 “I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which you have given me, for they are yours. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word.”

1 Timothy 2:1-4 “I exhort therefore, that first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for ALL men; for kings, and for ALL that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; who will have ALL men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”

Matthew 10:34-35 “Think not that I am come to send peace on the earth: I am come not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother. And the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.”

Matthew 5:44 “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”

Matthew 6:9-10 “After this manner therefore pray: Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”

Matthew 9:37-38 “Then said he unto his disciples, the harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest.”

Like oil and water do not mix, Paul’s doctrine and Jesus’ doctrine do not mix.

2 John 1:9 “Whosoever transgresses, and abides not in the doctrine of Christ, has not God. He that abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has both the Father and the Son.”

Jesus taught only one thing concerning who will be saved, and who will be damned. He remained consistent. Paul contradicts himself and teaches two totally different things.

1 Timothy 2:4 “Who will have ALL men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”

Romans 11:7-10 “What then? Israel has not obtained what he seeks for, but the election has obtained it, and the rest were blinded. (According as it is written, God has given them the spirit of slumber, even eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David said, let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompense unto them: let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back always.”

Paul also contradicts himself about his attitude toward the Jews.

Romans 9:3 “For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh.”

About Paul’s kinsmen who preach circumcision, “I would that they were even cut off which trouble you.” (Galatians 5:12).

This is a vulgar term used by Paul. He wished that they were cut off as the foreskin of a man’s penis is cut off during circumcision. Paul, what do you want? Do you want to be accursed from Christ for your brethren? Or, Do you want them cut off from Christ as the foreskin of a man’s penis is cut off? Paul, Do you really want to be accursed from Christ for your brethren? Or, these very same brethren who preach circumcision, do you really want, “As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, LET HIM BE ACCURSED.” (Galatians 1:9)?

Jesus is very consistent about what he says about salvation. Salvation belongs to his disciples.

Matthew 19:27-29 “Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed you; what shall we have therefore? And everyone that has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, AND SHALL INHERIT EVERLASTING LIFE.”

Matthew 13:10-16 “And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why do you speak unto them in parables? he answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For to whosoever has, to him it shall be given and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that he has. Therefore I speak to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which says, by hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing, you shall see, and shall not perceive. For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed are your eyes for they see: and your ears, for they hear.”
===================================
Paul commanded about widows and whether they should remarry or not. He also totally contradicts himself again. Jesus had no such commands.

1 Corinthians 7:8-9 “I say therefore to the unmarried and the widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.”

1 Timothy 5:9-14 “Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man, well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have followed every good work. But younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry: having damnation because they have cast off their first faith. And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not. I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.”

Notice carefully what Paul said. First he wanted the widows to remain unmarried as he himself, but if they cannot contain to let them marry. Notice that at first it was OK by Paul for them to remarry. No damnation, and no punishment. All was just fine and dandy if they got married. Then he does a total about face and issues new and contradictory commands. Now he says that any widow under sixty years of age MUST remarry. And if a younger widow is taken into the number, she will wax wanton against Christ (every single one? Guaranteed? How can he possibly know this?), She will marry: HAVING DAMNATION BECAUSE SHE HAS CAST OFF HER FIRST FAITH! (where in the world did he come up with that?)

So let us get this straight. At first it was just fine for any widow to remarry, if she could not contain. Now all of a sudden if a widow is taken into the number of widows and later remarries, she has damnation because she has cast off her first faith. (Woe to the widows who remarry after joining the number of widows, because it is an unpardonable sin, and they are eternally damned, having cast off their first faith).

Yet Paul still isn’t finished. He actually said what God said in another passage.

Romans 7:2-3 “For the woman that has a husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he lives; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband lives, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if the husband be dead, she is free from that law: so she is no adulteress though she be married to another man.”

Paul is all over the map. His epistles are called God’s Word, infallible, eternal, and cannot be broken. Romans 7:2-3 meets these qualifications. The rest of it does not. It cannot be scripture. God is not mixed up, nor is he confused. God does not contradict himself.
Now, Jesus did not mention widows, for the very same reason as what Paul just said in Romans 7:2-3; since her husband is dead, she is free from the law to her husband, and she can remarry.

Jesus said, “For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh: so they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder. And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter. And he said unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and remarry another, commits adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she commits adultery.” (Mark 10:6-12).

CHAPTER 14

Jesus commanded to preach the gospel and to live of the gospel. Paul acknowledged this to be God’s commandment, and he taught it, but he ignored it as far as practicing it goes, and rebelled against it.

Matthew 10:9-10 “Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his hire.”

Luke 10:7-8 “And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatsoever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you.”

1 Corinthians 9:7-15 “Who goes a warfare at any time at his own charges? Who plants a vineyard, and eats not of the fruit thereof? or who feeds a flock, and eats not of the milk of the flock? Say I these things as a man? or says not the law the same also? For it is written in the law of Moses, you shall not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treads out the corn. Does God take care of oxen? or says he it altogether for our sake? For our sake, no doubt, this is written: that he that plows should plow in hope: and that he that threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope. If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap of your carnal things? If others are partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power, but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ. Do you not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? And they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? Even so has the Lord ORDAINED that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel. But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.”

Paul acknowledged that ALL of the other apostles OBEYED God’s command to live of the gospel. Only Paul and Barnabas were rebellious against God’s commandment.

1 Corinthians 9:5-6 “Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas. Or I only and Barnabas, have we not power to forbear working?”

Paul claimed that the reason he worked and did not live of the gospel, was so that he would not hinder the gospel. Let us analyze this. If it is a hindrance to the gospel; then Jesus, and his disciples, and his brethren ALL hindered the gospel by living of the gospel. However the very opposite is true. To disobey God’s commandment is to hinder the gospel. To break God’s law is sin. You then teach other people by example to also break God’s commandment, and sin, as Paul did.

Also, Paul had an ulterior motive which he freely confessed openly. “For it is better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.” (1 Corinthians 9:15).

Paul’s motive was to glory, which is pride. This is sin. Almost everyone knows this.
All of Jesus’ disciples were called to do the same thing. Paul taught that each person has a different calling in life. Nearly everyone I have talked to about obeying the commands of Jesus concerning discipleship, have said the same thing. “Not everyone is called to do what you do brother.” Thus they excuse themselves from obeying Jesus’ commands. Jesus had some parables about this very thing, and the end of those people isn’t a good ending.

Matthew 16:24-25 “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever shall save his life shall lose it: And whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it.”

Matthew 19:27,29 “Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed you: What shall we have therefore? And everyone that has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”

Luke 8:1 “And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him.”

Luke 9:1-2 “Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.”

1 Corinthians 12:14-19 “For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now has God set the members every one of them in the body, as it has pleased him. And were they all one member, where were the body?”

1 Corinthians 12:27-30 “Now are you all the body of Christ, and members in particular. And God has set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? Have all the gift of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?”

John 14:12 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also: and greater works than these shall he do also: because I go unto my Father.”

1 John 2:6 “He that says he abides in him ought himself also so to walk, as he walked.”
Paul says believers are crucified with Christ, and died with Christ, buried with him, and resurrected with Christ. Jesus says believers are to deny themselves, take up the cross, and follow him.

Romans 6:3-6 “Know you not, that so many of us that were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted in the likeness of his death, we shall also be in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.”

Then Paul contradicts all of this. He claimed we are crucified, dead, buried, and resurrected unto newness of life. But then he says,

Romans 7:14-25 “For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not: but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh), dwells no good thing: for to will is present with me: but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil that I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God: but with the flesh the law of sin.”

Open your eyes, ears, and understanding and see what the Apostle Paul taught. He taught a metaphysical salvation. We are crucified, dead, buried, and resurrected unto newness of life; but only in the inward man or mind. We are in a body of death. We are not responsible for our own actions. It is sin that dwells in us that sins. It is no longer I that do it but sin that dwells in me. For to will is present with me, but how to perform that good I find not. No true repentance that really physically changes you completely, no truly doing good either. Listen to the Apostle John as he counters what Paul taught.

1 John 3:7-10 “Little children, LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU: he that DOES righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose was the Son of man manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God DOES NOT COMMIT SIN; for his seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever DOES NOT RIGHTEOUSNESS is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother.”

Listen to Jesus Christ.

John 8:44 “You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him, when he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

What Paul taught is a lukewarm conversion experience. Half hot and half cold produces lukewarm. Jesus promised that he will vomit the lukewarm from his mouth. How deceived can a person possibly be to take ABSOLUTELY NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR OWN ACTIONS! “It is no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me.” This is an abomination. This is heresy.

Today the hyper-grace doctrine teaches that all your sins past, present. and future, are already forgiven. So no matter what you do, or do not do, you are saved eternally and guaranteed to go to heaven. This is an abomination. However this is by far better than what Paul taught. Paul based our salvation on the fact that WE DO NOT COMMIT ANY SIN. IT IS NO LONGER US BUT SIN THAT DWELLS IN US. Not that our sins are all forgiven, but that WE DO NOT SIN IN THE FIRST PLACE! We are not sinners because WE DO NOT SIN. It is sin that dwells in us that does it.

My friend If sin dwells in you and you have no control over your own actions, but sin does it all, I have news for you, you are demon possessed! I say this in all gravity, and seriousness. Paul taught that we can only serve God’s law with our MIND, but with our flesh the law of sin. AND WE DO NOT DO IT BUT SIN THAT DWELLS IN US DOES IT. There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus. Your spirit is saved and safe in Christ. What you do here on earth that is evil is not you doing it, but sin that dwells in you does it.

He also tells us that our BODY is the temple of the Holy Ghost and the Spirit of God dwells in us. How can this be if sin dwells in us and has control over our actions?

To the lukewarm Laodicean church Jesus said, “Behold I stand at the door and knock: If any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20).

Jesus was not even in their hearts! To those who live in sin, Jesus said this, “MANY will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name have done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU, depart from me, you that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:22-23).

Only once, about twenty-two years ago, did I hear someone say what Paul taught. “It is not us who sins, but sin that dwells in us.” I knew even then that it was not true and warned people about it. All of you who follow Paul, you need to teach what he taught. Pastors, you need to teach your flock that “It is no more you that sins, but sin that dwells in you does it.” When I hear it, I will call it heresy, and you a false prophet.

Paul taught sinless perfection. If you are saved and safe in Christ, and you NEVER AGAIN SIN, because it is not you who sin, but sin that dwells in you; then you are sinless and perfect. Now you can understand what Paul meant by the following verse.

1 Corinthians 2:6 “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to naught.”

Philippians 3:15 “Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in anything you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.”

Paul was by his own admission all things to all men. In his epistles, you can find a very large variety of doctrines, many of which contradict each other. Sinless perfection? It is there. Not yet perfect? It is also there. Free from the law? You will find it. You will also find that Paul both quoted and commanded verses from the law on many occasions. Works not necessary? You will find it. Works ARE necessary? You will find that too. Eternal salvation? Yes, it’s there. You can lose your salvation? Yes, it’s also there. Free from sin? Yes. Sold under sin? Yes. Paul condemning Jewish customs? Yes. Paul being found in the temple with his head shaved, undergoing the Jewish rites of purification, including animal sacrifices? Yes, It’s there. Paul was all over the map on his doctrine, and his actions. I sometimes call him Flip-flop Paul because of it. Paul was a hypocrite of the first order. He was, as he said, all things to all men.

Here are some of the things that Jesus taught about these things.

Matthew 16:24 “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”

The concept of Jesus is totally different. Jesus never said that we die or that the body of sin is dead. Neither are we crucified, dead, buried, or resurrected into newness of life. Jesus said to “Deny Yourself.” Self is still very much alive as Paul discusses in great length in Romans chapter 7. So we are to DENY self. Then we are to take up our personal cross (not the cross of Jesus but our own personal cross,) and follow Jesus.

In Roman times once a man picked up his cross he was condemned to die. He was a dead man walking. He was still alive but his life had ended. Although still alive he would never return home, work a job, sit down to a meal, enjoy his family or friends, play, relax, sleep, or anything else, ever again. His new life consisted of suffering, pain, shame, regrets, and looking forward to death.

If you want to live forever in heaven, then deny yourself, take up your cross daily, and follow Jesus. As Jesus said to the rich young ruler who asked, “What good thing shall I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus told him to obey God’s commandments.

CHAPTER 15

Paul advocated celibacy. Jesus advocated becoming a eunuch for the kingdom of God’s sake.

1 Corinthians 7:7-9 “For I would that all men were even as myself. But every man has his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. I say therefore to the unmarried and the widows, it is good for them to abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.”

Notice that Paul advocated to everyone. “All men” and “the unmarried” covers everybody except those already married. Jesus only advocates being a eunuch to those men who are able to receive it.

Matthew 19:10-12 “His disciples say unto him, if the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there be some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, that have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.”

Such wisdom! All the scandal in the Catholic church because of supposedly celibate priests, who couldn’t contain themselves and sinned. If they had become eunuchs as Jesus commanded, none of that would have happened. And such a blessing to so many others who want freedom from sin.

Neither Jesus or Paul made a practice of baptizing people. They had their disciples do it. However Jesus commanded to baptize only living people. Paul spoke of people being baptized FOR THE DEAD!

John 4:2 “Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples.”

1 Corinthians 1:17 “For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.”

1 Corinthians 15:29 “Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? Why are they then baptized for the dead?”

Notice that Paul was neither condemning nor discouraging this practice. If that is God’s Word then your church better start baptizing people for the dead, otherwise you are rebellious sinners. If that is God’s Word, and being baptized for the dead gets them out of hell and into heaven; then if you get baptized for Judas Iscariot or Adolph Hitler, they get out of hell and go to heaven. This is against the entire Bible. A house divided against itself shall fall. It is heresy.

Jesus and Paul differ as to the meaning of baptism. Jesus taught the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins, the same as John the Baptist. Paul taught baptism as being the death of the old man of sin and the resurrection of the new man.

Matthew 3:6,11 “And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire.”

Mark 1:4 “John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.”

John 3:22-23 “After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized. And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came and were baptized.”

John 4:1-2 “When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, (though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)”

Mark 16:16 “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned.”
==================================
Paul taught that women shall be saved in childbearing. Jesus taught that women shall be saved by believing on him.

1 Timothy 2:13-15 “For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity with holiness and sobriety.”

So am I to believe that every woman who does not bear a child goes straight to hell? And every virgin girl also goes straight to hell? Paul said women shall be saved in childbearing. Don’t try to defend him. Don’t go to other versions of the Bible or to Greek dictionaries. If you do, you are only rewriting the Bible to say what you want it to say, just as Jehovah’s Witnesses do. The King James Bible is correct. Just accept what the Bible says and see it for what it is. This is false doctrine. It cannot be the Word of God.

Did you notice what else Paul said? “Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” So Adam was innocent? Eve was deceived, but Adam had his eyes wide open. Adam’s sin was far worse than Eve’s. Adam knowingly rebelled against God’s commandment and ate of the very same fruit as Eve did. Adam’s sin caused the fall of the entire human race. Sin and death have been passed down to every single human being, including you and me. Jesus Christ had to come and be crucified to remedy Adam’s sin. Paul said the woman was in the transgression? If only Eve had eaten that fruit, the human race would not have fallen. The fall was caused by Adam alone. Paul is full of false doctrine. And Paul blames the woman and says she can only be saved in childbearing! This is ridiculous.

Paul taught that women are to remain silent in church. Are you seeing a common thread through all of this? Paul is very anti-woman. He treats them at best, as second class citizens; at worst, as servants. Maybe this explains why he was not married and urged his followers not to marry.

I’ll tell you what. Jesus Christ is very pro-women. Jesus had many women following him in his entourage company. Paul had zero in his. Jesus allowed Mary to sit at his feet and hear his words. Mary was allowed to kiss his feet and to wash them with her tears and to dry them with her hair. It was Mary who anointed his head with costly perfume ointment in preparation for his burial and “Verily I say unto you, wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she has done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her,” (Mark 14:9).

Ask the woman at the well, the woman caught in adultery, or Mary the mother of Jesus if he is pro-woman. The very first person to see Jesus after his resurrection was Mary Magdalene, and this same Mary was sent by Jesus to give the very first gospel message.

How very opposite Paul is from Jesus. Paul is not like Jesus at all. So Paul taught that women were to remain silent in church, and it is not permitted for them to speak. The woman is not to teach or to usurp authority over a man. According to Paul all women pastors and teachers like Joyce Meyers are rebellious sinners. All pastors wives or singers or children’s church workers or helps ministry or any other woman, are ALL rebellious sinners because they dare to speak words at church, and do not wait to ask their husband at home what it all meant.

Every single church I’ve been to rejects this and rebels against it by not obeying it. They usually explain it away as being a custom of Paul’s time and not for us today. EXCUSE ME!!! If this is God’s Word, then it is a commandment for all eternity! If this is God’s Word then you are rebellious sinners and in danger of going to hell! Show me ONE place where Jesus, John, Peter, James, or Jude EVER taught a custom that we must obey AND that can become obsolete or outdated. Open your eyes and see that what Paul wrote is not God’s Word.

1 Corinthians 14:34-35 “Let your women keep silent in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also says the law. And if they learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak at church.”

All you women who speak in church SHAME ON YOU! It is a shame for women to speak in church. According to Paul women are to be silent at church. NOT ONE SINGLE WORD FROM START TO FINISH!

1 Timothy 2:11-12 “Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach or usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

Jesus on the other hand appeared first to a woman and sent her to give the VERY FIRST gospel message, and that to the APOSTLES!

John 20:14-18 “And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus said unto her, woman why do you weep? whom do you seek? She supposing him to be the gardener, said unto him, Sir, if you have borne him hence, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus said unto her, Mary. She turned herself and said unto him, Rabboni: which is to say, Master. Jesus said unto her, Touch me not: for I am not yet ascended unto my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.”

CHAPTER 16

Paul taught that women cover their heads while praying. I’ve seen pictures of church services in the 1940’s and 1950’s and every single woman is wearing a hat to cover their heads. So why have all of the churches backslidden and now women do not cover their heads? Why are you rebellious against Paul’s commands? Paul taught that women are to have long hair. All of the modern women with short hair are wicked sinners according to Paul. Their husbands and pastors are also wicked sinners for allowing them to have short hair.

Also, it is a shame for men to have long hair according to Paul. Look at the bills in your billfold. Almost all of them, and especially Benjamin Franklin have long hair. Shame on them! Shame on you for carrying pictures of long-haired men in your wallet or billfold. Paul said all these things and then turned around and cancelled it all out. This portion of verses has caused many church splits and doctrinal wars up until this day. Jesus never said a word about any of this.

1 Corinthians 11:4-16 “Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. But every woman that prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it is a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman: but the woman for the man. For this cause the woman ought to have power on her head because of the angels. Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so the man is also by the woman; but all things of God. Judge in yourselves: is it comely for a woman to pray unto God uncovered? Does not even nature teach you, that, if a man has long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given to her for a covering. But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.”

Paul said, “Does not nature itself teach you, that if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?” No, it does not! God created nature. God ordained certain men to have long hair. Both Samuel and Samson were under the Nazarite vow and a razor never touched their head from birth. (Until Samson was shaved by Delilah. Judges 13:7; 1 Samuel 1:11). Paul is just giving his own opinion. God NEVER just speaks and then just cancels it out. This cannot be God’s Word.
===================================
Paul taught that Christians can eat food offered to idols in the temple of the idol, and it is not sin. He did say if it offended a weak brother that they sinned against their brother and Christ. So, basically don’t do it. Not because it is sin, but because a weak brother can be offended. (1 Corinthians 8:10).

Why not just condemn the act? Why say it is OK to do it, but it is also not OK to do it because your brother will be offended, and the weak brother will perish. What Paul says does not agree with other scripture.

1 John 5:21 “Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.”

That is God’s Word. Paul later said the correct thing.

1 Corinthians 10:14 “Wherefore my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.”

Therefore 1 Corinthians chapter 8 is in complete disagreement with the rest of the Bible, and even Paul himself. You cannot play with idols, idolatry, idol’s temples, or food served to idols. As a Christian I am repulsed by the thought of sitting in an idol’s temple and eating the food offered to the idol. I cannot picture Jesus or Moses doing this.

I have traveled in countries where this is done. I have been around it. The fact that Paul would have the desire to eat food offered to idols lets me know that he could not possibly have been truly converted. Paul still insists that it is lawful for him to eat or drink things offered unto idols.

1 Corinthians 10: 23,29-30 “All things are lawful for me, but all thing are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. Conscience I say, not your own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man’s conscience? For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that which I give thanks?”

That sickens my stomach. BY GRACE he is a partaker of food and drink offered to idols in a idol’s temple. That is an abomination. Idolatry is an abomination to God, and Paul plays philosophical mind games with it! This is against the entire Bible!

CHAPTER 17

Add to this all of Paul’s “revelation” which Jesus never spoke of, referred to, taught, commanded, or preached.

Twenty-nine years after Paul’s death, Jesus appeared to the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos. Recorded in the Book of Revelation is Jesus’ message. He never once mentioned Paul or referred to his teaching. He did not mention a rapture either. Jesus told us once again what he had said before in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Revelation 3:3 “Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come upon you.”

Jesus tells us to watch, and that he is coming back as a thief in the night, just what he has always said. Thank God for Jesus’ second coming! But no mention at all of a rapture. Jesus still said that we are saved or damned according to our works, and that it is required to obey God’s commandments to have right to the tree of life and to enter the holy city. Jesus just continues as if Paul and his epistles NEVER EVEN EXISTED! The Book of Revelation is solid proof that Jesus Christ does not authorize nor acknowledge the Epistles of Paul.
The message of Jesus has never changed. Jesus teaches in 100% opposition to what Paul taught. Jesus is God Almighty. Jesus is the Word of God! And the living Word of God DOES NOT AGREE WITH NOR DOES HE ACKNOWLEDGE A SINGLE THING THAT PAUL WROTE!!! Read the Book of Revelation and see it for yourself. The words of Jesus Christ are etched in granite for all eternity. His teaching of salvation by works and obeying God’s commandments are forever established.

Revelation 22:18-19 “For I testify to every man who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

Remember that I told you earlier that the New Covenant had blessings and curses just like the old covenant did? Anyone who teaches Paul’s grace gospel has both added to and taken away from the words of the prophecy of this book. Notice carefully that Jesus didn’t say the book itself, but the words of the prophecy. That is the content of the doctrine of the prophecy. You don’t have to alter the book itself, just the message contained in the book. So anyone who teaches Paul’s grace gospel, Jesus Christ himself promises you THAT ALL THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK WILL COME UPON YOU, THAT HE WILL TAKE AWAY YOUR PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK!!!!!! verses 20-21 “HE THAT TESTIFIES THESE THINGS SAYS, SURELY I COME QUICKLY. AMEN. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”

Thus ends the New Covenant with a HOLY OATH FROM JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF TO CURSE AND TO ETERNALLY DAMN ANYONE WHO TAKES AWAY FROM OR ADDS TO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK. You who follow Paul and teach his epistles have REJECTED JESUS CHRIST THE WORD OF GOD! Your God is Paul.

You think this is false? Well Paul did the same thing concerning HIS GOSPEL OF GRACE.

Galatians 1:8-9 “But though we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed.”

Who was preaching in the Book of Revelation? An angel from heaven! And Paul said to let him be accursed. Who else was preaching in the Book of Revelation? Jesus Christ. And Paul said to let him be accursed too.

REPENT and cry out for forgiveness and mercy. Perchance God will grant you repentance and eternal life. If not, you are eternally damned for rejecting the gospel of the kingdom of God, and it’s author, Jesus Christ.

Paul said, “For I determined not to know anything among you , save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

This is perhaps the most revealing confession of all from Paul’s lips. The Jesus Christ that Paul knew is a DIFFERENT Jesus who contradicted nearly EVERYTHING that the true Jesus said, taught, and commanded while on earth, and even afterward, speaking in John’s Revelation.

2 Corinthians 11:4 “For if he that comes preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if you have received another spirit, which you have not received, or another gospel, which you have not accepted, you might well bear with him.”

Paul is describing himself. This is exactly as I see Paul himself. Paul preached another Jesus, he had another spirit, and he taught another gospel.

Paul’s epistles of Romans through Hebrews are All in contradiction with the entire Bible. Peter saw the results of Paul’s epistles cause destruction in the lives of many people. At this point in time Peter did not accept Paul’s epistles as being God’s Word. Bible scholars also say this or some say it is “doubtful” at this early period of time that Peter considered Paul’s epistles to be the Word of God.

Peter was too wise to attack Paul head on so he began with kind words. “And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you; AS ALSO IN ALL HIS EPISTLES, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, BEWARE LEST YOU ALSO, BEING LED AWAY WITH THE ERROR OF THE WICKED, FALL FROM YOUR OWN STEADFASTNESS.”

There you have Peter’s warning about Paul’s epistles. Remember that the main theme of the book of Second Peter is to warn against false teachers. The only teacher that Peter named was Paul.

There you have it. Paul has been fairly tried as a false apostle, using only the King James Bible itself as evidence and as testimony. The verdict is in. Paul is guilty as charged. Paul is the greatest deceiver in human history. Paul’s epistles are the greatest hoax in human history. Untold millions of people have trusted Paul’s epistles, have been deceived, and are in hell. The entire modern church is founded upon the foundation of Paul’s epistles. All of you who read this are in danger of hellfire and eternal damnation. Repent. Ask God to give you eyes that see, ears that hear, and a heart that understands. Ask for mercy and forgiveness. Reject Paul’s epistles and return to Jesus Christ the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Read, study, and obey the gospel of the kingdom of God, which is every word that Jesus Christ said, taught, and commanded. Become a true disciple of Jesus Christ.

Remember that to obey Paul you must disobey Jesus. That is what you have been doing all along. You have ignored and rejected the teaching and commands of Jesus Christ and claim Paul’s writings as the truth. Salvation is promised to the disciples of Jesus Christ who obey him.

May God richly bless you and give you a new life as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Amen.
