Blasphemy of Paul

Calling Christ as cursed or calling Him a sin is pure blasphemy.

1Cor 12:3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

Gal 3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”),

2Cor 5:21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Double tongued Paul, wrote to the Corinthians that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed yet to the Galatians he called Christ as cursed at the cross and even called him a sin. In this post, we will look into and validate Paul’s logic to see if it is Scriptural.

Gal 3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”),

Deut 21:22-23 If a man has committed a sin deserving of death, and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, his body shall not remain overnight on the tree, but you shall surely bury him that day, so that you do not defile the land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance; for he who is hanged is accursed of God.

Do you think anyone can hang an innocent man on a tree and declare that God had cursed Him because he hung on the cross? That’s exactly how Paul is misquoting the law which says, the hanged is cursed by God if he deserves death.

Gen 2:17 “but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Ezek 16:38 “And I will judge you as women who break wedlock or shed blood are judged; I will bring blood upon you in fury and jealousy.

Jesus did not became a curse for us or a sin for us. The curse of death was upon all humanity and the punishment for the disobedience of the law was upon the Jews. But Christ, was innocent and did not sin and died according to the curse which God spoke. His death broke death itself because He was innocent and He was God’s Word who is God Himself in flesh. Hence, Christ did not become a curse or a sin for us. Instead, He took the curse of death upon Himself to provide a way to eternal life through the curse of death, for He is life.
