You attack the teaching of Paul all the time. Yet the Bible tells us how to recognize false prophets. Why don't you show us that Paul is a false prophet based on our teachings?
Paul was talking about the idea of righteousness being obtained through the works of the old written Mosaic Law, which would make the gospel "not a gospel", as he puts it, meaning: if that is the only true path to righteousness, then the gospel serves no purpose, since we already had the Law before Jesus even came.
if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

a reply to: AkragonThe verse is "thieves and robbers", not liars, and Paul came after Jesus, not before.
All that came before me were thieves and liars...
It's in that same verse, John 10:8,
Wait, when did I say Paul came before Jesus?!?!?
I think that it is, just from my personal experience, it certainly felt like I was in the center of the Earth.
Jesus did not go to hell... and said firely place certainly isn't located in the center of the earth LOL
I think so.
The story of Job. Metaphorical?
If you go by the belief at the time that was written, they were there simply because they had died, where it wasn't according to what developed within Christianity, that this is where people go after already being condemned by the only judgment that they will ever get.
IF the place exists, those that dwell in said pit of despair are there for a reason...
The New Testament writers were working with the beliefs as they existed at the time, and went from there.
So much myth is spread as absolute truth because its in the good book...

I just read over the thread and realized that I'm an asshole. I'm sorry everyone, especially jmdewey.
It was extremely wrong of me to say what I did to you, and I wish I could take it back.
As for the hateful things I said to everyone else, I'm sorry for that too....
I wish I could just delete this thread...
