Paul changes the whole concept of grace from God, into teachings opposed to Christ.
Summary: Paul changes the whole concept of grace from God, into teachings opposed to Christ.
According to Christ and the Bible, God is the only judge and is the only thing that can give grace. Both Christ and the Old Testament say Christ can be an intercessor and so pass on the message to the judge. Yet the final verdict is with God alone and you will be judged by the commandments of God. This is to follow Christ's words, yet much of Christianity doesn't follow Christ; instead it follows Paul's-vanity.
Now Paul believed Yeshua to be God, so he also believed that we have grace, as God died for us. Now this is not what Yeshua said he came for, he said he came to bring the sinners to God and repentance. Yeshua clearly stated that he was not God, and that it was more important for the knowledge of God then sacrifices. Christ said to receive an inheritance in the kingdom of God, give up wealth and follow the commandments (The Law). The Pharisees teachings are that Christ was a sacrifice for sin; which in the parable of the vine dresser, Christ said they would try to do to steal the inheritance.
Galatians 2:21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness is through law, then Christ died without cause.
If Paul followed Christ he would have taught what Christ said, yet he didn't instead he taught Pharisees teachings; that Christ could be a sin offering for the world.
This is a clear reference, where instead of Paul admitting that the Pharisees had been wrong to kill him. Which you would think he would have done, if he was a follower of Christ, instead preached that the law has been ended by Christ dieing. So Paul taught Pharisee teachings, as if they were from Christ.
Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace,
The forgiveness of sins can only come through God and repentance; otherwise you are merely washing the outside of the cup and not the inside. When Christ asked for mercy and not sacrifice, he meant that all the burnt offerings in the world are worth nothing in comparison with the knowledge of God.
Matthew 9:13 But go and learn what this is, I will have mercy and not sacrifice. For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Hosea 6:6 For I desired mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
Now the teachings of Paul are equal in how Balaam taught Balak that he could make sin offerings with out teaching him the law's of God. Instead of Paul teaching what Christ taught; instead he taught what he wanted, that people could sin without offering; as Christ was the final sacrifice.
Romans 11:6 but if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.
This passage is so much, by a winding snake; it is hard to believe, people have trouble seeing Paul for who he is.
Christ taught that works count and that by giving up wealth and helping the poor you store treasure for eternal life.
Matthew 19:21 Jesus said to him, if you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven. And come, follow me.
Luke 10:2 Then He said to them, the harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray to the Lord of the harvest that He may send forth labourers into His harvest.
These are quite clear on what it means to follow Christ, that God wants workers.
Romans 6:14 for sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under Law, but under grace.
From all that Paul has written Christ's teachings count for nothing. Paul truly makes his own religion up, very similar to the Pharisees and has nothing to do with the teachings of Christ.
Matthew 19:18-19 He said to Him, Which? Jesus said, you shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not bear false witness, (19) honour your father and mother, and, you shall love your neighbour as yourself.
If Christ tells a person here to keep the law, as this is not only the commandments yet other parts taken from the law. What right does Paul have to say the law is ended in Christ?
Matthew 12:36-37 But I say to you that every idle word, whatever men may speak, they shall give account of it in the Day of Judgment. (37) For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.
Indeed Paul has condemned himself in his wording, and in teaching others as a Pharisee would; has shut the way to heaven for many. Even the followers of Christ at the time knew that Paul was fake.
Jude 1:4 For certain men crept in secretly, those having been of old previously written into this condemnation, ungodly ones perverting the grace of our God for lasciviousness, and (denying) = contradicting the only Master God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
This is quite clear when you look at the things I have discussed, that indeed Paul changed the grace of God into his own teachings. The fact that most Christian countries have more problems with lasciviousness (lust) then others; goes to show, that students learn from their teachers. So why does Paul contradict God's principles?
Psalms 84:11 For Jehovah God is a sun and shield; Jehovah will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
God gives grace to the righteous and those who walk in his laws, God doesn't need anybody in between for you to come to him; you just have to open the door by repenting and accepting.
Romans 3:23-24 for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, (24) being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus;
Indeed all people do mistakes, yet as I discussed in another article Paul's ideology, on this matter is that all are sinners. Christ and the Bible clearly state it is the actions of a person. If a person does sin they can repent to God, not that everyone needs Christ as a sin offering to seek God.
Proverbs 12:2 The good gets grace from Jehovah, but He will condemn a man of wicked thoughts.
The good already get grace for being good, Paul was wicked, and so tried to justify him self in Christ. His own ego drove him to spread his message, when the angel of light came to him and told him not to continue, Paul automatically assumed it was the devil; as it was not his own wishes (also like Balaam). In parts of his writing he puts him self down, yet straight after he defends him self, as Daniel put it; preaching pompous words.
Proverbs 3:34 Surely he mocks the mockers, but he gives grace to the humble.
This is one reason Paul got so lost, as although he tells you he was nothing and it is all for Christ. He then goes on to tell you how he did this and that, to justify that he was somebody of importance. The amount of things Paul tells people of his own agenda should have made it clear he was not a follower of Christ, yet rather his own teachings and Ego.
Luke 2:40 And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom. And the grace of God was on Him.
Christ came with the grace of God and the parable of the vine dresser he told, is probably clearer, then I can even try to explain it. The Pharisees had him killed to steal this grace upon him or his inheritance. Paul's teaching's are completely opposite to this; that we still have grace and an inheritance in Christ, as he was murdered. So fulfilling this parable or prophecy, the worst thing is that many have been taught it is right to believe this to follow Christ, as a sacrifice. In truth it shows you have nothing to do with Yeshua, as you are not a friend of his; yet an enemy if you can belief such a thing as Paul taught.
