St. Paul, Prophet or Charlatan?

St. Paul, Prophet or Charlatan? Part II

                Our conception of divinity is radically altered with the astonishing proposition offered in Part`s one and two of this series. Namely, that Jesus did not die on the cross at all. This idea, causes the work of St. Paul, to be seen clearly for what it is "a political tool. St. Paul`s philosophy was to turn Christianity into a cult of worship over a dead God, for the sake of instilling fear in his subjects and authority in his self. St. Paul was possibly what the Letters of John warn as an Anti-Christ ", a wolf in sheep`s clothing.

                The point of these articles is to show that St. Paul never ceased being Saul the Pharisee and persecutor of Christianity. In fact, his blasphemous of creations of redemption through faith, and atonement for sins is a cause of much of the world`s despair, even today. As a through and through Pauline Christian, it does not matter what actions I perform.

One day, I could be a war criminal the next, I could convert to Paul`s doctrine and claim that I had been freed from sins. Washed clean of guilt I could go on to repeat being a war criminal, and then converting to Paul`s doctrine, over and over. There is no real atonement for sins in this perverted form of Christianity. If there were, the focus would be on preserving life and compassionate works for others, as Christ the man would have shown us.

Unfortunately, for the modern Christian, Paul`s work usually finds itself juxtaposed with many a sermon and service. Why is this so? Could this be the reason for the modern world`s inability to free themselves from revenge? Paul`s work creates an inferiority complex in the practitioner. Refusing to let us be like Christ, Paul forces us to relegate ourselves as meek and small in comparison to our savior. Thus, we are not responsible for our sins "we are saved as long as we believe in Paul.

                The Letters of John warn of Anti-Christs " and Nietzsche`s Anti-Christ critically wounds the image of St. Paul. What is the connection? Clearly, Christ himself was something foreign to the sheep. Something disguised, buried and ultimately lost to the false doctrine for two-thousand years. Beyond St. Paul we only have his church to blame and the construction of his bible (missing all the relevant chapters on the life and works of Jesus Christ) to read.
