Paul Says “None” While Everyone Else Say “Some”

 

Paul taught that there was NONE RIGHTEOUS on this planet, NOT EVEN ONE!

Romans 3:10
10As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

The word for “righteous” in Greek is “dikaios,” Strong’s Number is #1342.

But Yashua says that there ARE righteous people! The following verses are all using the same Greek word Paul is using.

Matthew 10:41
41He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.

Matthew 21:32
32For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.

Matthew 13:17
17For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

Matthew 23:35
35That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

Luke 1:5-6
5There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
6And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord
blameless.

Luke says that both Zacharias and his wife Elisabeth were righteous before God. How were they righteous? Luke tells you very plainly, in verse 6, that they were righteous because they were “walking in ALL the commandments and ordinances of the Lord.” They were willing to follow God and obey his Laws (Torah). This is what righteous means: to walk in obedience to God’s commandments.

James 5:16
16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

1 John 3:12
12Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.

So according to Yashua, James, Luke and John there’s at least 5 righteous people that I can count, while Paul boldly claims that there is no one that is righteous. I even spoke to Paulinists who think I’m making too much of the passage. In other words, for the Paulinists “none, not even one” meant “some” in their vocabulary.

Here’s are additional verses proving Paul is dead wrong.

Genesis 7:1
1And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Ezekiel 14:14
14Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD.

Psalm 1:6
6For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm 5:12
12For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Psalm 34:15
15The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

Psalm 37:16-17
16A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
17For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.

Job 1:1
1There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

Job 1:8
8And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

Wasn’t Noah righteous which earned God’s approval? Weren’t Noah, Daniel and Job righteous? How about Enoch? He walked with God and it was because of that he did not see death. There’s tons of righteous people mentioned in the Tanakh. Paul twisted scripture to convince his readers that there are none righteous, not even one, to support his heretical teachings that we are imperfect beings incapable of doing good. There will be many paulinists out there who, not wanting to see the truth, try to make excuses for Paul to justify him. They will explain that what he really meant is that he was referring to mankind in general. But this isn’t what Paul wrote. He wrote the words “NONE,” and even goes on to say, “NOT EVEN ONE.” That doesn’t mean “some” or “in general.” If one can twist the words to fit their view, then one can pretty much twist any other verse to fit.

If we take the time to look up the references used Romans 3:10-18, we will find that there are no verses that support his statement. He selected six different passages from the Old Testament to make the bold claim that none are righteous, none seek God, and that all are evil in the eyes of the Lord. This is an outright lie.

First, he references Psalm 14:1, but this verse is speaking about atheists, the unbelievers, and NOT all of mankind. Note it says, “the fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.” This is clearly a reference to atheists. Did Enoch, Job, Abraham, Moses or Noah say in their hearts that there is no God? Of course not. So Paul rips this verse out of context.

Secondly, if one takes the time to read further down in verse 5, David states clearly that there are righteous people. Open up a handy concordance and do a search for the word “righteous” and you will find that there are many righteous people mentioned in the Tanakh.

Psalm 14:1-7
1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
2The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
3They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
4Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
5There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
7Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

It’s time to wake up! Stop smelling the roses and smell the coffee. Who are you going to believe? Saul or everyone else?!
