After the new covenant has come, what about the old covenant for the Jews? It is still valid for the Jews? Are the Jews still required to follow the law? What laws are invalidated by fulfilling them and what laws still remain? What is the 614th Mitzvot?
The gospel preached by Paul is not the same gospel preached by Christ. You have two choices. The popular choice is a wide gate and broad way, where you are saved by God’s grace through faith and nothing is required of you but leads to death, which is the gospel of grace by Paul the Pharisee. The unpopular choice is a narrow gate and difficult path where you had to deny yourself to live holy and righteous that leads to life, which is the gospel of the kingdom of God preached by Jesus Christ. The choice is up to you. Repent, and believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, not Paul.
Fruits of the Spirit is term used only by Paul in his letters referring to the good attributes that will be evident if we walk in the Spirit. However, the fruits mentioned by Paul are very different from what Christ referred as fruits. The core message of Christ was to cleanse the inside of our hearts with zero tolerance towards sin which are from the seed, His Word or His teachings that bears into fruit by obeying them. Hence, it is inappropriate to substitute fruits of the Spirit in Christ’s teaching on fruits or vice versa.
God will judge any nation that is like a pricking thorn to Israel. In 1948, God gathered the house of Israel and the nation of Israel was formed. They will dwell in their own land, build houses, plant vineyards and dwell safely. While Israel dwell safely, God will execute Judgments on all around those who despise them. Whether it ancient Tyre by Alexander or the Invasion of Iraq in 2003 or Syrian civil-war in 2011, these judgments ruined them.
While there are two ways you can become a son in this world, there is only one way you can become a son of God which is by being born of Spirit (or God) and not through adoption. Do you have Paul’s words in your heart, thinking that you are adopted as sons but never being born of Spirit? Or do you keep Christ’s Words to be born of God to enter the Kingdom of Heaven? To be born of God, we must be never sin (1 John 3:9), become free from being slaves of sin (John 8:34-35) to abide in God’s house. We cannot enter the kingdom of God without being born of the Spirit (John 3:5). Do not be deceived! God is not going to adopt you as sons! You must be born of Him!
Christ did not gave anyone authority to change His canon of Scripture. He included only 28 books: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, I & II Samuel, I & II Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi and Psalms. Just like there are weightier matters of the law (Matt 23:23), Gospels and Revelation are the weightier books in the New Testament. It is blasphemy to exalt and glorify a man’s letter and make it equal with Christ’s words. Turn back to God and His word for everything, even the very definition of what Scripture is.
On the day when the Lord judges a nation, just like the unconquered, undefeated fortified island city of Tyre was brought to its knees, God will judge every nation for its iniquity.
Paul is a vessel used mightily by God for His purpose. This does not make Paul equal with Christ or his letters equal with Christ’s teachings. Paul does not know many things what Christ taught during His ministry and relied on Peter and James. This is why, few teachings of Paul contradicts with what Jesus taught. Here we will analyze the top 25 contradictions commonly told between Paul’s letters and the teachings from Christ. Christ’s teachings always supersedes Paul’s letters.We are called to build our lives on Christ’s sayings which must be our foundation for us to be called wise, then build over it using Paul’s letter and not the other way around. Most importantly, never reject Christ’s teachings in favor of Paul’s letters.
Matt 7:13-14 Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that Jesus Christ have commanded you. Matt 28:19-20
Any doctrine or teaching that does not agree with what God the Father spoke or taught by Jesus Christ is a false teaching and not from God. Ref: Matt 23:23; Isa 55:11; Mar 13:31
