  • Hi,
    This is my humble comment to your post #64 on the thread 'Sabbath Keeping'.

    It is clear that Paul had a very important role in spreading Jesus message in his time. But should we consider Paul's message for all times too... as Jesus message is?

    And, if we like hearing God's Living Word, should we believe that we can hear more important natural truths and/or better explanations from Paul that Jesus forgot or didn't have time to reveal?

    Thank you.
    Hi Kerim,

    Paul started out teaching the gospel of repentance, but later developed his own gospel. Paul's message is useful in the way that it differs from the facts.

    Habakkuk 2
    4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
    5 Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:
    6 Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and to him that ladeth himself with thick clay!
    7 Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them?
    8 Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.

    Some of what Jesus taught was only hinted at, mostly through parables.

    Matthew 9
    13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

    Matthew 12
    7 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

    Hosea 6
    6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of Elohim more than burnt offerings.

    Regards, Theo.
