    A brother in Christ wrote a response to this post with the following…..

    “This is partly our fault. Given the ignornace of Scripture out there, by now we should know better than to harp on “Paul this, Paul that,” rather than on “the Lord, through His words through Paul.”

    We are dealing with ignorance on a mass scale. As such, we have to be vigilant in our attempt to address these issues keeping in mind, first of all, that we are dealing with ignorance on a mass scale, secondly, that such ignorance will read it’s own ideas into our “Paul this, Paul that,” though what we have meant has been, “the Lord through Paul this, the Lord through Paul that…”

    For some reason, we Gentiles are rather stupid when it comes to this issue. Throughout “the four gospels” the Lord continually uses phrases like, “what did Moses say you should do… Moses said this.. that which was written by Moses…” and such, and no one bats an eye – not even His worst enemies.

    Perhaps because those people grew up hearing that while we grow up hearing the completely idiotic “what would Jesus do,” a statement in violent opposition to what the Scriprure plainly declares He later also did – RAISED UP A NEW APOSTLE – “OF THE GENTILES – WITH A TOTALLY UNEXPECTED, A TOTALLY NEW MESSAGE.


    I mean, how plain can a statement be, or are we simply that willfully stupid a people? The answer is obvious. Offensive, nevertheless, obvious.”

      Hey brother Dano, thanks for commenting! 🙂 Using Moses as an example is a very good answer to those who accuse us of elevating the person Paul. We’re elevating his office (Romans 11:13) and his position, as our Apostle and spokesman for today (Acts 9:15-16, Romans 11:13, 15:6, Galatians 1:1, 1 Timothy 1:1, 2:7, 2 Timothy 1:7-14). We’re told to follow him (Romans 16:17, 1 Corinthians 1:10-11, 1:17-18, 4:16, 11:1, 14:37-38, Philippians 3:17, 4:9, 1 Thessalonians 1:6, 2:13, 2 Thessalonians 2:13-15, 3:9, 1 Timothy 1:11-16, 2 Timothy 1:9-11, 1:13-14, 2:2, 2:7, 2 Timothy 3:10-14, Titus 1:1, 1:3)
