Paulism vs Jesus

Did Paul alway claim to speak for god or also speak from himself or Jesus? Paul writes several declarations and laws that state his views are from him and not God. • “Judge for yourselves what I say” (1 Corinthians 10:15 New International Version). • “Even as I try to please everybody in every way” (1 Corinthians 10: 33 New International Version). • “To the rest I say (I, not the lord)” (1 Corinthians 7:12 New International Version). • “I have no command from the lord but I give a judgment” (1 Corinthians 7:25 New International Version). • “In my judgment” (1 Corinthians 7:40 New International Version). • “Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be” (Galatians 5:2 New International Version). • “Again I declare to every man who” (Galatians 5:3 New International Version). • “I want men everywhere to” (1 Timothy 2:8 New International Version). • “I also want women to” (1 Timothy 2:9 New International Version). • “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to” (1 Timothy 2: 12 New International Version). • “Now I want you to realize” (1 Corinthians 11: 3 New International Version).   “Modern conservative “Christians” (who follow the conservative Paul) are so un-Christ-like and so unlike the Jesus (a liberal) they claim to worship.” – Davis D. Danizier Paul vs. Jesusby Davis D. Danizier   Paul (originally as Saul of Tarsus) was an admitted persecutor of Christians who might have found a more effective way to undermine the followers of Jesus. Perhaps he infiltrated their ranks and taught a doctrine that opposed teachings...

If we attempted to suggest that the Devil was a mortal monster then how is it that he has supposedly lived for thousands of years and possesses the powers of disease, deception, death, pain, and torment and is permitted by an almighty god to challenge his authority. The devil is not satan. It is interesting to note that in the detailed record of god’s dealings with Israel in the Old Testament, nowhere is there given an indication of a personal devil who goes around tempting people. The Hebrew equivalent of the word devil is only used 4 times and is in connection with false worship and idols of wood and stone – not an immortal being. It is impossible for a rebellion to happen in Heaven? Scary Beasts In Heaven? Hell, Heaven and the Power of Imagination. Jesus himself proclaims that god’s will is done in heaven when he teaches his followers to pray for god’s coming Kingdom to be on earth in what has become known as “the Lord’s prayer”: “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10 If god’s will is done in heaven then how is it that...
