Question 3: Even if Paul’s words are not God’s words, yet after being called by God, he spread the gospel and endured suffering for the Lord for the rest of his life. He traveled so far and worked so hard to establish the churches. He paid such a heavy price. His contributions to the church are as plain as the eye can see. His faith in the Lord and the way he suffered for the Lord are an example for all Christians. Do you not accept these facts?

Answer: How many people just read about how Paul spread the gospel and suffered in his letters but do not understand Paul’s nature and substance. Everyone knows that when the Lord Jesus did His work, Paul was the main culprit that hated the truth and resisted the Lord Jesus. This is something that Paul himself did not dare deny. The Lord Jesus gave so many sermons and performed so many miracles. Why did Paul still hate and resist the Lord Jesus? Why did he fanatically persecute and hunt the Lord Jesus’ disciples? This is evidence that Paul’s nature and substance was hatred of the truth and of God. Why did he work so hard to protect the interests of the chief priests and Pharisees? Why did he stay loyal to Judaism? This shows that his heart was only thinking of his position, not God. To increase his position, he resisted the true God and persecuted His believers. He wanted to obtain rewards from Judaism at all costs. What kind of person is he? It isn’t hard to tell. What was the situation that caused Paul to accept the Lord’s call and spread the gospel as an apostle? When he was fanatically hunting and persecuting the Lord Jesus’ disciples, the Lord had no choice but to appear to Paul in the sky. The Lord blinded him with a great light, bringing him to his knees. The Lord did not appear to Paul because he was loyal to the Lord. He appeared to him as part of a punishment; He had no choice. Paul was forced to sacrifice and suffer for the Lord Jesus because the Lord Jesus appeared before him. His objective was atonement. He saw that the Lord was too almighty, capable of blinding him and forcing him to kneel down. He was afraid that he would be punished and sent to hell. That’s why he sacrificed for the Lord. If the Lord Jesus had not appeared to him, would he have followed the Lord or sacrificed for Him based on his devilish nature that resisted the Lord Jesus? Definitely not! Therefore, Paul did not really have faith in the Lord Jesus. His suffering and sacrifice were not done willingly. He had no choice; he was forced.

Previous: Question 2: You say Paul’s words are not the truth. Then why are his words in the Bible? Paul’s words are written in the Bible. Therefore, they were inspired by God; they represent God’s words. We should pursue them!

Next: Question 4: Even if Paul wasn’t perfect, the Lord wouldn’t remember his past transgressions. Paul worked and suffered for the Lord for many years; he paid a higher price than anyone else. His suffering must have earned the Lord’s praise. Brother Paul is still our exemplar! He is an example to all Christians. If Paul did not obtain God’s praise, then who can?

The world is beset by catastrophe in the last days. What warning does this give to us? And how can we be protected by God amid disasters? Join us for our topical sermon, which will tell you the answers.

Question 1: I have studied the Bible for more than 20 years. I can be certain that there is no word of God outside of the Bible. All of God’s word is in the Bible. Anything that violates or goes beyond the Bible is heresy and fallacy!

Almighty God says. “In Jesus’ day, He led the Jews and all those who followed Him according to the work of the Holy Spirit in Him. He did not look to the Bible for evidence, but spoke as His work dictated. He did not concern Himself with what the Bible said, did not lead His followers down a path found in the Bible. From the very beginning, He preached the way of repentance, and the word ‘repentance’ was not mentioned at all in all the prophecies in the Old Testament."

Question 1: It is clearly written in the Bible: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Heb 13:8). So the name of the Lord does not change, but you say that the name of the Lord Jesus will change in the last days. How can you explain that?

Almighty God says, “There are those who say that God is immutable. That is correct, but it refers to the immutability of God’s disposition and substance. Changes in His name and work do not prove that His substance has altered; in other words, God will always be God, and this will never change. If you say that the work of God always stays the same, then would He be able to finish His six-thousand-year management plan? You merely know that God is forever unchanging, but do you know that God is always new and never old?"
