There is due respect for the guy saying "he does not know"

Wouldn't you say?

My point is based on Ancient Wisdom that people experienced to work for themselves, focusing on happiness and sharing happiness with others makes life more enjoyable.


As The Bible says and as I quoted in the original post:


You Sow What You Reap

You can only get The Fruits of The Seeds you planted, so plant loving and happy seeds



Law of Attraction.

Wow, I didn't realize this.

Law of Attraction, most Christians take all of Paul's teachings to heart even the contradictions and he continuously uses the word "Christ"; and if Law of Attraction is true and he is a fake Christian it would make sense why may who claim to be Christians connect with him so well.

Recently, I been defending Paul and Yahwrh because if the bible was edited then it is only fair to give the benefit of doubt - but the main virtue I look up to is Equality - treating people fairly, which comes without a book .



The difference between Paul and Jesus....Jesus is the Messiah.

The prophets of the OT told us about Jesus to come, Jesus came, then Paul told the rest after Jesus went back to heaven. Also, Paul was not teaching solely to Jewish believers, he was preaching also to people who were never Jewish to begin with. Even though Paul AND Peter, and the rest of the disciples were actually Jewish and never gave up their Jewish identity, it was not exclusively to Jews they were speaking to.

Christians should also read what Peter wrote. But that's the problem, people stop at Paul and think Paul is the sum total of the New Testament.

Peter and Paul had a feud on HOW to preach to non-Jews, Paul accused Peter and some of the other disciples of being wishy-washy. the feud basically got down to one thing, the circumcision. Paul was against telling non-Jews to circumcise, but accused Peter of that, and yet Peter never did. Later, Paul recanted and apologized to Peter.

The feud is recorded in the Bible, if people would read about it. But Paul DID say "ALL scripture is profitable", and since the Bible was not as it is now, he was referring to previous scripture, but then he goes on to quote from the Book of Enoch. So Paul was relying on the Book of Enoch and teaching it, yet it isn't in the Bible. So, I would say read the Book of Enoch.

But we simply don't know all the scriptures available to them in their day and Paul's teacher was the great Gamaliel. So if you want to learn the basis of Paul's education, learn about Gamaliel. But in this dismissiveness of Paul, the most important thing to remember where he was during the time Christ was alive, he was a Pharisee from the tribe of Benjamin. You have to remember to whom he was preaching, Jews and Gentiles alike. As Paul was saying that the non-Jews were not obligated to Jewish law, then he had to teach Jesus separate from Jewish law. That's where the confusion comes from.

If there is only one takeaway in my post, remember this, Paul was saying that non-Jews were never obligated to Jewish law, even though Jesus was a Jew. Basically, Paul said "If you are not Jewish, then don't become Jewish, because you don't have to". If you approach the Bible with this understanding, then perhaps you may understand when he said "circumcision is of the heart".

Sorry to get offtrack, but thought I would clarify why you think there are contradictions with Paul. He was simply teaching the spiritual nature above the physical law. That is all.

The so-called "Law of Attraction" teaches people to use their connection with the divine for their own personal gain. If you're using your spirituality as a way of "getting the things you want", then you're completely missing the point.

And you're seriously messing with a different law (one that actually does exist)--Karma, which is not equivalent in any way with the former.

The real ones don't play. That might have something to do with it.

Ok lets presume Jesus was a creature who couldnt be swayed by temptation, so therefore Jesus never had sex in his life correct?
edit on 15-11-2013 by AthlonSavage because: (no reason given)


Sex is not a sin, unless its out of wedlock, so if Jesus was married he could have had sex.




Do you believe Jesus was real as depicted in Bible or a fictional character made up as a mechanism for manipulating a belief structure of the peoples.


I believe in the Jesus of the Bible.
