Begotten of God or begotten of Paul?
Yahshua said in Mat 23:9 Call no man Father upon the earth for one is your Father, which is in Heaven.
He also said ‘Neither be ye called Masters/teachers for one is your teacher, Messiah
Contrasted with Paul in 1Cor 4:15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors/leaders in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
I have wondered incessantly at times why Christianity is so obsessed with Paul. Why Christians continuously use Paul to trump Yahshua. Forgetting or never knowing that they are making void the Commandments of God teaching for doctrine the lawless evangel of Paul.
I suppose it had not fully occurred to me that Paul is their Father, they are begotten of him and not God at least not the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Certainly not The Heavenly Father of Yahshua the Messiah.
No matter how one desires to word it, Paul is the father of Christianity in so far as Christians are birthed from his words. Even as Paul himself has said ‘…I have begotten you,…’
Yahshua prophesied of the evil one who would come and sow his sons, the tares, among the wheat.
Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
So we know that Yahshua The Messiah is the Son of Man that sowed the good seed. However contrary to popular opinion concerning Paul, he was a complete dismal failure at the end of his career. He had been thoroughly decimated by James the brother of Yahshua and the Apostle John. At the end Paul was alone, he had no followers, his letters were trashed and burned. He was know as anti-christ.
However in the year 144 AD a man named Marcion found hidden in a trunk several letters of Paul that had survived the purge. Marcion was an extremely wealthy man and he single handedly in a very real sense resurrected the reprobate Paul and the Pauline movement began once again, this time without the Apostles of the Lamb to defeat the Pauline doctrines and keep the people free from the ravenous wolves that have thoroughly corrupted what was once a very powerful movement.
So while men, i.e. The Apostles of the Lamb slept, an enemy (The gospel of Paul and Marcion) crept in and sowed the tares, the false gospel among the wheat.
At this time the wheat and tares do bare some resemblance until there comes a choice to hearken diligently to Words and Teachings of Yahshua or Paul.
Yahshua said it was the ‘devil’ that sowed the tares. Devil is defined as ‘Slanderer or False Accuser.’ He is also known as the Great deceiver
Did Paul slander or accuse falsely, did Paul deceive or use deceit? Let’s see, in the testimonies concerning Damascus Road, not one time do the testimonies match, they are remarkably inconsistent.
The men that were with ‘heard the voice’ the men that were with him ‘did not hear the voice’, the men stood, the men all fell down.
Paul says the ‘voice’ told him to go to Ananais where he would told what to do, in the third testimony Ananais is not even mentioned and the voice gives Paul the messianic title of ‘light to the gentiles.‘ Therefore Paul is either the Messiah or the Anti-Messiah, you can’t have both. One is true, one is a lie.
What is so tragically apparent today is that Christians count Paul as the Messiah, and Yahshua is just a secondary figure whose Words have no import whatsoever. Though they would never say so outright, they prove it by their actions.
Yahshua said ‘you will know them by their fruit’ meaning their actions. Yahshua said ‘heaven and earth will pass away but MY WORDS will never pass away. Yahshua also ‘Think not that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets, I am not to destroy but to fulfill.’
The word ‘destroy’ is in the Greek ‘kataluo’ #2647 ‘To dissolve, to Disunite, render vain or void.
The word ‘Fulfill’ is in the Greek ‘Pleroo’ #4137 meaning ‘to cause to abound or overflow.’ It never means terminate.
Psa 119:142 ‘…Thy Law is the TRUTH.’
Did Paul slander the Law? Paul said the Law was the power of sin, the knowledge of sin, a yoke of bondage, witchcraft’
Does the Law of God or the Commandments of God enslave, does TRUTH enslave?
Yahshua said ‘If you continue in MY WORD you will know the Truth and the TRUTH will set you free.’ However Paul says ‘NO the Law and the Commandments will enslave you, if you do them you will fall from grace and truth and be entangled with a Yoke of Bondage.’
Yahshua said ‘IF you love me, keep my Commandments.’
Yahshua said ‘no man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other or else you will HOLD to the one and despise the other…’
To slander the Law and the Commandments is to slander the ONE that gave them.’
Did Paul use deceit? Obviously, he even said he did. Rom 3:7, 2Cor 12:16 ‘I caught you with guile.’ Guile is deceit.
So we have Yahshua who said ‘I AM the Way, The TRUTH, and the The Life.’
And we have Paul the LIAR.
It’s very similar to the Jews choosing between Yahshua and Barrabas.
So, are you begotten of God or Paul?
