"O L-RD, Who are my power and my strength and my refuge in the day of trouble, to You nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, 'Only lies have our fathers handed down to us, emptiness in which there is nothing of any avail! Can a man make gods for himself, and they are no gods? 'Therefore, behold I let them know; at this time I will let them know My power and My might, and they shall know that My Name is the L-RD".
Jeremiah 16:19-21

Paul of Tarsus: False Apostle and Deceiver?

May 9, 2011

in Saul/Paul of Tarsus

by Salisbury Boy

I admit that at one time I believed and did not question that Saul (aka “Paul”) of Tarsus was a true apostle and that his epistles were “God-inspired” scripture. I have since come to question that after reading, studying, and thinking on the subject of Paul and his writings.

To those who think it is blasphemous or unthinkable to question Paul, I ask that you examine the writings of Paul and seriously think about the argument against him. You may be shocked to find that the truth about Paul is far different that what you may have been led to believe. There is overwhelming evidence to conclusively prove that Paul is a liar and a deceiver. Just because Paul’s writings have been included in the “Bible” does not mean that they should be. The Apocrypha and other writings have been excluded. It is believed that Paul’s writings were originally included as part of the “Bible” by Emperor Constantine (who made Roman Catholicism the official religion of the Roman Empire).

Paul’s own writings show him to be a false prophet. He routinely lies and even misquotes and misrepresents Old Testament scripture. Paul taught against what the Messiah (“Jesus”) taught. He taught against keeping the Old Testament law, and taught people to obey the rules and laws of men, including all laws of civil authorities (see Romans 13:1-7). Remember that Paul was a Pharisee who ruthlessly hunted down, arrested, and murdered the followers of the Messiah. He even boasted about it in his writings. Yet, he never expressed repentance for those great sins in his epistles. In reality, Saul/Paul transformed from a persecutor and murderer of the Messiah’s disciples into an infiltrator and deceiver who sought to attack the true message of the Gospel from within by masquerading as an “apostle.”

Also, remember that Saul/Paul was not trained by the disciples, the men who walked, talked, and lived with the Messiah. He claimed to have received his knowledge from “revelations.” He was not recognized by the true apostles as a genuine apostle. Paul claimed that title for himself.

Here are just a few examples of Paul’s lies and false teaching:

1. Paul lied about his “Conversion” on the road to Damascus before King Agrippa in Acts Chapter 26:

The story of Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus is recorded three separate times in the book of Acts. Here’s is Luke’s account of the event from Acts chapter 9: “And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And 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. And 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. And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. And 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.” (Acts 9:3-8)

Note here that the voice only tells him to arise and go into the city and THERE it shall be told him what to do. The other account of Paul’s “conversion” in Acts is basically the same as the one from Acts Chapter 9. Now, here is Paul’s version of the event in front of King Agrippa in Acts Chapter 26:

“Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” (Acts 26:12-18)

Here, Paul claims that the voice told him these things he was to do THERE ON THE ROAD. This is a clear departure from the other accounts of the event. The two stories cannot be reconciled. At least one is not true. Luke’s account in Acts 9 is most likely accurate. Paul embellished the story before King Agrippa.

2: Paul claims all the law is fulfilled in one commandment:

“For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” (Galations 5:14)

3: Paul boastfully claims he was the “father” of his followers:

“I am not writing this to shame you, but to warn you, as my dear children. Even though you have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel. Therefore I urge you to imitate me.” (1 Corinthians 4:14-16)

“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” (Matthew 23:9)

Admittedly, these are only a few examples of Paul’s lies.

One must do their own research and study in order to gain a full understanding of the fact that Paul was a false apostle and deceiver.

The issue of Paul of Tarsus is a raging controversy. Do you have any data on historical evidence? I see the word “Noahide.” Are you aware that these laws will be used by the synagogue of Satan to persecute believers?

Respond to email, thanks.

This is really out there… most people don’t understand Paul because he is presented in a very negative light. Actually, Paul gave us the Pauline Revelation, the most important message to the Church ever given. It is based on the doctrines of Identification and Substitution, and reveal to the believer who they really are in Christ.
For a better understanding of Paul, check out a recent blog entry I did on him:

Hmmm – I have been on to your blog and the reason why I have no time for Paul- is because he is anti Torah – he comes over as a fool and any one is a fool who tries to change the Torah. The Pauline revelation is not compatible with the Torah and therefore cannot be taken seriously.

If you wish to check out the Truth and seriousness of the Torah check out our blog more fully! Or better still read the Torah in a proper translation of the Hebrew Scriptures such as Artscoll Chumash or Chabad http://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/15830/showrashi/true

The New Testament is not a compatible with the Jewish Scriptures – and they and Christianity have absolutely nothing in common. There is no old testament because the Hebrew Scriptures are still correct, therefore there is no New Testament because it is not needed. The Torah is eternal!

Warm Regards

Dave and Yvonne.

In regards to the part where you claim that Paul never expressed remorse, read 1 Corinthians 15:9. Paul was a strong advocate for the Law(torah). For example read Romans 3:31 and Romans 7:12. The law paul was stating the we are no longer “under” is the Sacrificial Law which was used to atone for sin, but now seeing we are under the grace of Christ, animal sacrifice is no longer needed. The grace of Christ does NOT mean we can now break the law, on the contrary. According to 1 John 3:4 sin is the breaking of the law and in Hebrews 10:26 we see that there is no remission for willful sins only for sins commited through ignorance. The Law of the Most High is in effect to this very day. Psalms 119:142 clearly states ” thy righteousness is an EVERLASTING righteousness and thy LAW IS THE TRUTH.” Even Christ himself says so in Matthew 5:17-19 “…till heaven and earth pass, not one jot or one tittle shall in NO WISE pass from the Law, till ALL be fulfilled.” 

Pauls statement in Galatians 5:14 is absolutely correct. According to 2 John vs.6, love is the keeping of the commandments(law). In order for someone to truly claim they love their neighbor, they have to keep the Law. Also the love of God is defined in 1 John 5:3, which is keeping the commandments which are NOT grievous. I hope this sheds some light on the writings of Paul. If any body has any questions or comments i strongly urge you to contact me…kent_cuellar@hotmail.com…I look forward to your responses. Shalam! All praise to the Most High!

Thank you for your comment, but this is not correct. Paul was not a contender for the Law he was an abrogater and an imposter. His epistles contradict themselves time and time again and he has a very bad memory … http://noahide-ancient-path.co.uk/index.php/articles-by/dave-yvonne/2012/05/paul-fanatic-heretic-and-egotist/

Paul was actually not ‘anti-torah’ as beautifully explained in this article:  http://www.bu.edu/religion/files/pdf/NTS-NTS56_02-S0028688509990294a.pdf

Paul was about as much for Torah as Hitler was for the continued existence of the Jews. Anyone can make him sound like an angel: you just have to ignore what Paul actually wrote in comparison to what the Jewish Bible teaches.
