For over twenty years I had been confused by the teachings of Saul of Tarsus. I used to believe Paul was this super apostle appointed by Yashua, which I looked up to and wanted to imitate. However, after careful a study of his teachings, I realize that his teachings conflicted with those of Yashua’s. The books by James, Jude and John also seem to be at odds with Paul’s letters and doctrines. Saul’s writings are confusing, illogical and contain grammar worse than mine. His hypocritical ways and double-mindedness will be apparent to those who are willing to take the time to compare what he wrote.
We have been brought up and taught not to question the Bible. I agree that we shouldn’t question God’s word, but we first have to determine which books contain God’s word. The letters by James, Paul, Jude, etc. are exactly what they are… just letters. In the early centuries, these letters were circulated and used solely for edification, encouragement and to address certain issues that arose among the believers. They weren’t regarded as coming directly from God himself. Let’s think about this logically. If a pastor from church, who you consider really spiritual, wrote a book, would you say that the book is a divinely inspired by God and were God’s own words (God-breathed)? Chances are you wouldn’t. This is exactly the same with these letters of the Bible. There were many letters falsely attributed to the apostles floating around the landscape in the early centuries. There were also many other letters that taught Gnosticism and a mix of other ideas and religions as well. We would have to compare them to the Tanakh and Yashua’s teachings to see if they conform to the same message.
In this day and age, we have more resources and technological aids that will help us get to the truth of the Bible easier. It is our due diligence and highest responsibility to search out a matter (Proverbs 25:2) and to seek out answers (Matthew 7:7) for our own sakes as well as those of our loved ones. Rather than accepting blindly what you have been brought up and taught, you should pray for and seek out the answers to your faith. It is my firm belief that Saul of Tarsus is a false prophet and the following articles lay-out my findings and supporting evidences.
