I'm of the opinion that paul was preaching a false gospel. This is the same guy who made two different stories in act coming directly from luke. Who I believe wouldn't lie.
Acts 9 version
"3And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: 4And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 5And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 6And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. 7And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. 8And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. 9And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink"
Acts 22 version
"6And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me. 7And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 8And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest. 9And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me. 10And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do. 11And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus."
Not to mention Paul actually directly contradicts Jesus.
"And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments."
"Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;"
Jesus came to fulfill the law not to destroy it.
"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."
Paul stated otherwise
"Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Not to mention James stated in his epistle that Faith without works are dead.
"But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?"
Paul states the opposite
"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin."
"Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law."
"Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified."
Paul states that there is none righteous
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"
1 John 3:7
"Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous."
So does Jesus
"And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal."
and... Paul apparently?
"For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die."
