Paul slaughtered Christians and put them in prison for being followers of Jesus. He did it without mercy and without remorse so in no way is Paul a fine Christian. Once a murderer always a murderer and the lives of the innocent victims should be honored more than their killer. Paul should have been punished for his serial murders, placed in prison, but probably because of his wealth and high status somehow, he got away with it. It is possible he paid the secular court to look the other way. Paul was adept at paying money to remove responsibility for crimes as it was ingrained in his religious beliefs. Paul said he forgets about the people he apprehended. So their suffering means nothing to him.
John the Baptist is the finest Christian according to the voice of Jesus and Paul declares what John taught is meaningless because John taught water baptism removes sin but Paul teaches the death of an innocent life removes sin. Paul wants praise for the death of Jesus. No true Apostle wanted Jesus dead and Peter was even willing to fight to prevent it because Peter had learned what "I desire mercy and not sacrifice means". Jesus never said my death will save you.
Jesus told the Jews that if they want him to die then they do not love Jesus, do not love God and are not the people of God.
1 John 4:7
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God."
If you love someone then you do not agree to his murder for crimes he did not commit. God commands do not kill.
John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me." Note these men are sons of Abraham as is Paul. Paul easily could have been among these temple priests, threatening to kill Jesus, and they ARE doing the works of Abraham that threatened to kill an innocent man that welcomed Abraham into his home. Jesus said, I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
Understand that if you seek to kill Jesus, agreeing he should die then the word of God has no place in you.
"If God were your Father, ye would love me And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?"
In John 8 verse 56, Understand Abraham is dead and when Jesus says "my day" it is the day his sons kill Jesus which would make Abraham if he were alive rejoice because Abraham's lies are believed as truth and the truth taught by Jesus is destroyed. I AM is God and before the father of the lie that he is chosen of God existed, the Truth that Abraham is not chosen existed.
The bloodline covenant does not exist, Abraham lied when he said it does.
That is clear as to what Jesus thinks about killing him as a sacrifice. Do not believe it or approve of it. Water Baptism removes sin, believe that truth.
So, Paul's gospel is kill innocent Jesus for a reward. How could it be wonderful to follow a man that according to Jesus does not love Jesus, does not love God nor is he in the kingdom of God but is found in the house of Judas the betrayer of Jesus that helped to kill Jesus and lost his Apostleship for it. Paul gave himself the title of Apostle and he is not one. Judas lost his apostleship for agreeing to the death of Jesus. Paul is so crafty he gets people to believe he is an Apostle for agreeing Jesus should die and wants people to agree Jesus should die.
