I find it humorous that there are so-called Christians that accept Christ but reject the bible.
No better than believing in Christ and also accepting that we evolved from a one celled entity.
Of coarse people can believe whatever they want, it's their perception that they are in control of, but it's not the true reality. You might as well believe Star Wars is real, in a galaxy far far away.

You've just made yourself look like a fool. You stated, "People who reject Paul are true followers of Jesus." Peter, James and John didn't reject Paul, they gave him the right hand of fellowship. The early Church Fathers didn't reject Paul. Jesus didn't reject Paul but showed up to him.
I don't know how to explain it to you any easier.
It is not intellectually dishonest to state that all scholars believe Paul was real.
Paul being a real person who wrote things is irrelevant to whether he was a true apostle of Christ.
Actually I hate calling him Paul in the first place, he's Saul, he never stopped being who he was, just changed tactics and in doing so he won and corrupted Christs teachings. He persecuted the believers of Jesus after finding that didn't work, converted with spectacular lies and corrupted and destroyed everything Jesus stood for from within.
