Sure, because Paul could have NEVER gotten a hold of some of Jesus' teachings while he was murdering his followers, right? You are completely ignoring
the possibility of Paul being a fraud even when the evidence points toward it.
Also, just because I believe in Jesus in a different way than you doesn't mean I deserve eternal torture. Or does it?

ETA: If to know Jesus is to know yourself (I agree 100% with that) then what makes you think we aren't equal with him? You're doublethinking again.
If the Son is all of us, then why do you believe the term includes Jesus alone? Didn't I say something about us all being the "Son" that Paul was
speaking of in one of his epistles? Didn't you reject that notion? So why are you agreeing with it now? Doublethinking again I see.

Consider the words of Enoch:
104.10 And now I know this mystery; that many sinners will alter and
distort the words of truth, and speak evil words, and lie, and concoct great
fabrications, and write books in their own words.
Is it possible Enoch was referring to Paul here? Could it even be he was speaking of Matthew, Mark, Luke or John? I don't think so myself. I see a
unified message of Mercy and Grace on mankind. I see Adam as the ultimate redeemer, as well as the one in error at the beginning. The mystery of God
was revealed in Christ, the one given over from the foundation.
If Paul was an enemy of Christ, his message would have been the Pagan Mysteries and geared toward the Babylon system of Rome. Instead, we find him
working against that system. The Pagan Mysteries are the partially taught mysteries given to those who were fallen from Genesis 6. Enoch calls them
the watchers. We know them as fallen angels. Consider what Enoch said.
106.19 But after this, there will be yet greater iniquity than that which was
committed on the earth before. For I know the mysteries of the Holy Ones,
for the Lord showed them to me and made them known to me, and I read
them in the Tablets of Heaven.
On the side of Enoch, we follow the thread of truth through Jacob and finally Jesus, the Word of the Mysteries. Enoch knew this mystery from both
Adam and Heaven.
103.1 And now I swear to you, the righteous, by His Great Glory and His
Honour, and by His Magnificent Sovereignty, and by His Majesty: - I
swear to you that I understand this mystery.
103.2 And I have read the Tablets of Heaven and seen the writing of the
Holy Ones. And I found written and engraved in it, concerning them, that
all good, and joy, and honour, have been made ready, and written down, for
the spirits of those who died in righteousness.
Consider Paul and his afflictions, imprisonment and his suffering for the message he gave. Does this reflect what we read below? Consider what Enoch
told the Watchers about the Mystery they knew:
16.3 "You were in Heaven but its secrets had not yet been revealed to you;
and a worthless mystery you knew. This you made known to women, in
the hardness of your hearts. And through this mystery the women and the
men cause evil to increase on the Earth."
16.4 Say to them therefore: "You will not have peace."
Did Paul have peace? Yes. Read his words:
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether
well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
Paul is a man of God. Nothing less.
