Question 6: All these things you’re talking about are sins Paul committed before he accepted the Lord’s calling. However, after he was shone by the great light, he began traveling everywhere spreading the Lord’s gospel. He established so many churches and led so many people to accept the salvation of the Lord Jesus. He wrote so many letters in support of the faithful. This shows that Brother Paul had already repented. You can’t conclude that he was an enemy of the Lord Jesus based on his performance before he returned to the Lord.

Answer: It is true that Paul spread the gospel for many years and wrote many letters after being shone by the great light, but that doesn’t mean he really repented. Nowhere in his letters does it ever indicate that he really reflected on and knew his own evil behavior: his fanatical resistance of the Lord Jesus and persecution of His disciples. He just merely acknowledged that he was the foremost of all sinners. He never described his own nature and substance, nor did he say why he resisted the Lord Jesus, what his motive was. The fact that he never addressed these things in writing means he never really repented, doesn’t it? Why was Paul able to answer the Lord Jesus’ calling and work for the Lord? In reality, he had no other choice. Paul knew if he didn’t accept the Lord Jesus’ calling, he’d face punishment and certain death. He was able to spread the gospel and suffer a bit because he wished to atone for his sins. How can one person who just seek atonement truly repent? Furthermore, we can clearly see from Paul’s letters that when Paul was spreading the gospel and doing his work, he never exalted the Lord Jesus or bore witness to Him. He never testified about how the Lord Jesus redeemed people, supplied people, and led people. He definitely never testified about how the Lord Jesus is the truth, the way, and the life, that He is the appearance of God, God incarnate who does God’s own work. Paul never testified about the Lord Jesus’ loveable qualities, nor did he ever testify about how the Lord Jesus suffered pain and humiliation in order to save mankind. He never preached or testified about the truths that the Lord Jesus once expressed or everything He said. He never encouraged other believers to abide by the Lord Jesus’ words, He never told them that they must follow, serve and testify to the Lord according to the truths expressed by the Lord Jesus. He definitely never told them about the substance of the Lord Jesus’ work and its true effects, or how people should do the heavenly Father’s will in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. Instead, he explained the Lord Jesus’ work according to his ideas, and misinterpreted the Lord Jesus’ words. Many words that he said seriously interrupted and disturbed God’s work in the Age of Grace. Does that prove he really repented? Paul’s work did not bring the believers before the Lord Jesus. He did not lead people to experience the Lord Jesus’ words or know that the Lord Jesus was the appearance of God. Instead, he exalted himself and bore witness to himself. He brought the believers before himself and made them adore him. Is this not the same path the Pharisees walked down? These facts are enough to prove that Paul never truly repented.

Previous: Question 5: Paul’s sacrifices and suffering were forced. We admit that as well. However, when you say that Paul in substance hated the truth and was the enemy of God, I don’t agree with that. What are you basing that on?

Next: Question 7: You say Paul did not exalt or bear witness to the Lord Jesus. I don’t accept what you’re saying. Brother Paul wrote so many letters. Weren’t they all testimonies to the Lord Jesus?

Question 4: I read Almighty God’s words, “Corrupt Mankind Is More in Need of the Salvation of the Incarnate God.” I think this is a fantastic passage of God’s word, very practical, and very important. With regard to why corrupt mankind must receive the salvation of God’s incarnation, this is an aspect of the truth that most people urgently need to understand. Please commune with us a little more on this.

Almighty God says, “The flesh of man has been corrupted by Satan, and most deeply blinded, and profoundly harmed. The most fundamental reason why God works personally in the flesh is because the object of His salvation is man, who is of the flesh, and because Satan also uses the flesh of man to disturb the work of God. The battle with Satan is actually the work of conquering man, and at the same time, man is also the object of God’s salvation. In this way, the work of God incarnate is essential."

Question 4: People are sinful, but the sin offering of the Lord Jesus is forever effective. As long as we confess our sins to the Lord, He will forgive us. We are sinless in the Lord’s eyes, so we can enter the kingdom of heaven!

Almighty God says, "A sinner such as you, who has just been redeemed, and has not been changed, or been perfected by God, can you be after God’s heart? For you, you who are still of your old self, it is true that you were saved by Jesus, and that you are not counted as sinners because of the salvation of God, but this does not prove that you are not sinful, and are not impure."

Question 4: When the incarnate Lord Jesus was resurrected after His crucifixion, He became the life-giving Spirit. And thereby the life-giving Spirit dwells within us, blends with our spirit, and the two spirits will become one. So how could we not become God in the end? How could I be wrong about this?

Almighty God says, “The Spirit within Jesus, the Spirit in heaven, and the Spirit of Jehovah are all one. It can be called the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, the sevenfold intensified Spirit, and the all-inclusive Spirit. The Spirit of God alone can carry out much work. He is able to create the world and destroy it by flooding the earth; He can redeem all mankind, and moreover, conquer and destroy all mankind. This work is all carried out by God Himself….”
