Under the Influence of Paul
From a thread over at TruthSeekers, the link is on the side panel.
Over on the thread ‘A Systemic Neglect of the Message’ I was staggered by what some had to say concerning Salvation being found in the ‘Sinner’s Prayer.’
For those who are unfamiliar with Rom 10:9 it goes like this:
If you shall confess the ‘lord Yahshua and shall believe in your heart that God raised Him from dead, you shall be saved.’
That Paul was a false prophet, a self confessed liar, a self confessed deceiver, etc is no contest. He is a remarkably corrupt tree. Paul is the LEAVEN of Christianity and the Messianics. There are numerous articles here on ‘Truth Seekers’ for any one that desires to know the truth about Paul. Let’s face it, Paul accused the Apostles of the Lamb of being ‘Angels of Light, who had transformed themselves into ministers of righteousness.
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Can you believe that? I mean that he had the gall to accuse the 12 of being satanic deceivers.
Is the truth in Paul? Here he looks more like the ‘Accuser of the Brethren.’
But let’s take a look at what James the brother of Yahshua had to say:
James 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
And James 1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the inborn word, which is able to save your souls.
It is the WORD of Truth that saves our souls.
Was Paul a ‘corrupt tree’? Absolutely! Can good fruit come from a ‘corrupt tree’? Can the LIE give birth to the Truth? These are questions for you to answer.
Perhaps the issue is this, is someone ‘saved’ when they utter a prayer? No, they are not. Salvation is a path that takes your whole life to complete.
You must endure false anointed ones, a multitude of false prophets, false teachers, you must also take great care that no man deceives you. Which includes Paul.
Yahshua said ‘he that endures to the end shall be saved.’
You must follow Yahshua, i.e the Word of Truth. Come to Him hear His Word and do it. Everything else is vanity.
