Paul, more than any other man, was responsible for the transformation of Christianity from a Jewish sect into a world religion. His central ideas of the “Divinity of Christ” and of “Justification by Faith Alone” have remained basic doctrine to “Christian Thought” throughout all the intervening centuries. Paul was not as successful in preaching to the Jews as some of the other early Christians. In preaching to non-Jews, however, Paul was outstandingly successful, so much so that he is often referred to as the “Apostle to the Gentiles”. No other man played so large a role in the propagation of Christianity as Paul. The main reason of success among the gentiles was that the gentiles, (Greco-Roman pagans) found the ideas propagated by Paul very close to their established beliefs, thus the new faith became quite acceptable to them. The pagan gentiles worshiped many sons of almighty Zeus (The principal god of the Greek pantheon, ruler of the heavens, and father of other gods and mortal heroes), Jupiter and other such gods like Attis, Adonis, Dionysus, etc. They believed that these pagan gods had died for their sins and been resurrected. Paul taught the Gentiles to turn “to God from idols, to serve a living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come”(Corinthians; 1:9-10).
Paul explained to them that Jesus was not merely a normal human prophet but a “Son of God” and that this “Son of God” died in atonement for the sins of all mankind. The gentiles immediately saw the parallels and the great degree of similarity with that which they already believed. All they had to do was to change a few labels. In this manner, Paul managed to convince the gentiles to accept the “Religion of Jesus.” This is because, unlike the Jews, the religion of the Greeks already accepted “father gods” and “son gods,” the death of gods, the resurrection of gods, the incarnation of gods, divine savior gods, the eating of the flesh of gods, and the drinking of the blood of gods…etc. All of these concepts were not new to them. Thus Paul became a great leader among them and was named “Saint Paul” and “Apostle to the Gentiles”.
PAUL – THE SATANIC DISCIPLE:
Paul never met Jesus, is from Christian, Biblical sources, he is not mentioned among 12 disciples. Devil tried to tempt Jesus but was rebuked . “Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”[Matthew 4:10]. Satan is enemy of humanity, it tempted and succeeded to get Adam & Eve from the garden of bliss. Disappointed Satan later possessed Paul through a vision in the appearance of Jesus Christ. Paul changed teachings of Jesus to worship One God, to false pagan doctrines. Paul was tried and punished to expatiate his sins of going against Law of Moses. Whole episode is narrated in Acts:21. Leave false teachings of Devil follow the clear, unambiguous teachings of Jesus Christ still available in Gospels: ‘ Hear, Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord” [Mark;12:29]
