(like some say)
Although he wrote the majority of the New Testament and was responsible for countless numbers of Christian converts for the last 2,000 years, I have heard him referred to as a "male chaivinist", anti-female, a liar, and a false apostle.
One "prophet" was saying "ya gotta watch that Paul" alluding Paul was in error and that the Catholic Church was somehow mistakenly responsible for including Paul's writings as scripture.
Many Messianic Christian Jewish brethren stumble at Paul's epistles. Even the vast majority of Christian ministers and pastors bear no resemblance to the ministry, faith, and walk of Paul.
Paul has told lies, and he is in all probability the false apostle that Yahshua commended the Ephesians for rejecting.
1. "His apostleship was unrecognized by others.",
And of all the people who shouldn't need to have others testify on their behalf, Yahshua was that person. Yet he had Moses, the prophets, the Psalms, John the Baptist, the Fathers voice from heaven declaring to everyone "this is My beloved Son..." and hundreds of those who witnessed his resurrection just to name a few. Paul had none of these."
These two instances came from the same person. Not from Yahshua, or any of the original apostles, but from Paul's close traveling companion and personal press secretary Luke.
Both accounts are found in Luke's record of the Acts of the Apostles, (chapter 14:4,14).
Here Paul is referred to as an apostle along with Barnabas. By this time in the story, Luke would have been very accustomed to Paul calling himself an apostle, and he would no doubt have been in agreement with Paul's assessment of himself. By these statistics alone, it is evident that Paul is by far his own biggest fan... and his side kick Luke was his number two fan.
This leaves no one else anywhere in the Bible going on record as recognizing his apostleship!
