Even if Paul did write all 13 books & letter attributed to him (scholars think he actually only wrote 8 of them) then that means that the majority of books in the New Testament weren't written by Paul.
All the stuff attributed to Paul is only 20% of the New Testament. That means four fifths of the NT are NOT Pauline.
The four Gospels alone account for 48% of the NT.

The term Chakra has no place in a discussion of biblical or Christian matters.
I have no particular aversion to the term, or its origins, but it does not have relevance to Christ or any of the contents of the bible. The man is wrong to conflate anything that could be discerned from study of Chakra, with any thing one could learn from the study of the Bible.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
makes ya wonder eh...
There is a difference between a Commandment, capital C, and a commandment.
You on the other hand, have constructed your own Christ with the help of your emotions.
Maybe you are thinking that because there are so many church buildings and 501c type groups, you see thousands of sects but what you fail to see is many of these groups believe Jesus Christ died in their place for their sins and rose again to give justification and eternal life to those who believe on him.
Cult groups like Mormons, Jehovah Witness, Church of Christ, Catholic church (east and west) etc . . .
believe Jesus Christ died in their place for their sins and rose again to give justification and eternal life to those who believe on him.
There are not thousands the Body of Christ is one not thousands
Sure. His name, Yehoshu'a, means "YHWH is salvation", and as Murgatoid's video so clearly delineates, Jesus had a habit of stating, 'I am that I am'.
True, but this Yehushu'a was born of a virgin as predicted by Isaiah, died on the cross as the suffering servant as predicted by Isaiah, and claimed to be God. Furthermore
His impact was so significant that it survived almost 2,000 years of history despite multiple attempts by various kingdoms to extinguish the truth.
John15:19“If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20“Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21“But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me.
Matt 8: 11“I say to you that many will come from east and west, and recline at the table with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven; 12but the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” 13And Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; it shall be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed that very moment.
