Paul contradicts the teachings of Jesus - The False Prophets

 

Jesus says you must abide by the law, Paul abolished it. 13

Jesus

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them… not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law … Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:17-19 NIV

“It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law.” Luke 16:16-17

“If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:17 NIV

Paul

“by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances” Ephesians 2:15 RSV
“For Christ is the end of the law, that everyone who has faith may be justified.” Romans 10:4 RSV

“But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.” Galatians 3:11 KJV

Jesus said the Pharisees didn’t follow the law properly, Pauls says they did 13

Jesus

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! … But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.” Matthew 23:23 NIV

Paul

"in regard to the law, a Pharisee;"

"as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for righteousness based on the law, faultless." Philippians 3:5-6 NIV

“They have known me for a long time and can testify, if they are willing, that I conformed to the strictest sect of our religion, living as a Pharisee.” Acts 26:5

Jesus said God lives in the Temples, Paul says the opposite. 13

Jesus

“and he who swears by the temple, swears by it and by him who dwells in it;” Matthew 23:21 RSV

Paul

“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands.” Acts 17:24

“But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, ‘This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.’” Luke 15:2

Paul

“… if he is guilty of immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber—not even to eat with such a one” 1 Corinthians 5:11

 

Jesus speaks of righteous people who follow the law, Paul says there are no righteous that follow the law 13

Jesus

“… Zechariah, …his wife Elizabeth” “Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly.” Luke 1:5-6 NIV
“For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.” Matthew 13:17

Paul

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” “…there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” Romans 3:10,12 KJV
 

Jesus warns a sinning believer, Paul teaches all will be saved. 13

Jesus

“And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire… if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell….if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell” Mark 9:42-47

Paul

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 NIV

Jesus doesn’t teach original sin, but Paul teaches original sin. 13


Jesus

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
“Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:14-15 NIV

Paul

“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned” Romans 5:12 NIV

Do not ask anything for preaching or spreading God’s work. 14

Jesus

“And preach as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’”
“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying, give without pay.” Matthew 10:7-8 RSV

Paul

“If we have sown spiritual good among you, is it too much if we reap your material benefits?” 1 Corinthians 9:11 RSV
“If others have this right of support from you, shouldn’t we have it all the more?” 1 Corinthians 9:12 NIV

“Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching;”
“for the scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain,” and, “The laborer deserves his wages.” 1 Timothy 5:17-18



Jesus teaches praying privately, Paul says pray everywhere 15

Jesus

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:5-6 NIV

Paul

“I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;” 1 Timothy 2:8-9 RSV

Which are the Important commandments? 14

”And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”
“On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matthew 22:37-40 KJV

 

Paul

“The commandments, ‘You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,’ and any other commandment, are summed up in this sentence, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” Romans 13:9 RSV
