Paul taught the opposite of Yahshua, and the Apostles
Although many of the Gentiles accepted Paul, and his doctrine, once he was gone from them, according to Paul, most of them turned to the teachings of others outside Paul’s circle.
In Galatians 1:1-12 Paul said
“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel” Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”
These verses alone tell us that Paul’s doctrine was very different from the doctrine the disciples taught.
Many Christians think that the Apostles, and disciples of Yahshua accepted Paul, both as a Christian, and an Apostle, but this is untrue. Acts tells us the reason they were gracious toward Paul at times…..
Acts 9:26 “And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple”.
They did not accept him, they were afraid, and leery of Paul. They were wary due to realistic suspicions of the man they knew was Saul. God never told the disciples that Paul was one of them, but told the prophets to separate from Paul, and his men. (Acts 13:1-3)
Yahshua’s Teachings Compared To Those Of Paul
Yahshua Messiah had a very loving spirit. He cared for those who were lost as much as anyone. He showed a lot of meekness and became a servant and taught us to be servants.
But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
Yet many who claim to love God and his son, show more loyalty to the False Apostle Paul than to God.
You say you love Yahshua, you even say he died to save you. Do you really believe that? Than why do you live by Paul’s words instead of His?
Let’s Compare Paul’s Teachings To Those Of Yahshua’s
Becoming As Little Children
Yahshua taught that people who would enter the Kingdom of Heaven must be as little children
And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Paul taught to put away childish things
1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things
What are children like? They are innocent, very open to learning, and they ask their parents a lot of questions. They don’t commit sin or even know what it is. They are innocent, believing, and fascinated. Children take you at your word and don’t doubt. Everything about children you can think of is how we are suppose to be. We lose so much when we grow up.
 Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living;
But Paul taught differently
 For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE
God said if a man writes a bill of divorcement and his wife departs out of his house and she marries another then the first husband should not take her back, even if the second husband dies.
1. When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife.
3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;
4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
But Paul said a woman should return to her husband
1 Corinthians 7
10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
In Matthew 19, As Yahshua and his disciples travel south towards Jerusalem, he’s approached by some Pharisees testing him, and began to question Him whether it was lawful for a man to divorce a wife.
“And He answered and said to them, “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” And they asked, “Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?” But, Yahshua said to them, Matthew 19:8
He saith unto them, “Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so”
Divorce was never God’s desire, but something that he tolerated because of a person’s hard heart.
Yahshua is very clear on this:
In Matthew 5:31,32….Where Yahshua is teaching he says.. 31. “It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement”.
32 But I say unto you, “That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery”.
God hates divorce and Yahshua said the only way it’s permitted is if a spouse commits fornication (has sexual relations with another) Paul tells the people at Corinth if a spouse wants to leave let him leave
1 Corinthians 7:15. But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
But Paul taught that the children would be unclean and unholy if the parents did not sanctify each other (whichever is not sanctified)
In 1 Corinthians 7:12-16 Paul instructs believers that if they have a non-believing husband or wife, they must stay with that husband or wife if they wish to stay. In verse 13 Paul says “ And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him
14. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband.. Then Paul says something strange “else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.” or “Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.” (Paul is the only one who taught this
Yahshua Taught to do good to our enemies so we can be the children of our Heavenly Father.
Matthew 5:44,45 48
44. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. 45. That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven……….48. Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Paul said to give food and drink to our enemies, not to become children of our heavenly Father, nor to to help our enemies, but to heap coals of fire on their heads
Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head
Yahshua said not to forbid those that did not follow them
49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.
50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
But Paul said let those who did not preach the same as he did, be accursed, even if it is an angel from heaven
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Exaltation Before Man
Yahshua said exaltation amoung men is an abomination
 But he said to them, You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts; for what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.
 Woe to you, when all men speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets.
But wouldn’t you know it, Paul taught just the oppositE
 for we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord’s sight but also in the sight of men.
 Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all men.
 he who thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men.
 just as I try to please all men in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.
Yahshua taught not to call anyone on earth, Father.
And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
Paul taught that the Elders were to be entreated as a Father
1 Timothy 5:1
Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father ; and the younger men as brethren;
Paul indicated that his converts were his sons, and he took on the characteristic of their Father.
2 Timothy 1
11. Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles
Paul taught that flesh could not inherit the Kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 15:50
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption
Yahshua taught we are to enter into the Kingdom of God in Flesh as well as spirit.
In Luke 24:15-51 after finding the tomb of Yahshua was empty (body and spirit)
He opened their eyes and they saw him. He sat at meat with them and brake bread, blessed it, than he vanished out of their sight.
Later, he appeared to them and they were afraid because they thought they had seen a spirit.
To show them that he had raised his body along with his spirit, he asked if they had any meat, and he ate it. He ate fish and a honeycomb. He taught and blessed them, and he, his body and spirit was carried into heaven.
So Flesh entered into heaven, which is contrary to what Paul taught.
Forgiveness of Trespasses see also justification
Yahshua said if we forgive we will be forgiven
 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you;
 but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses
The only time Yahshua talked about us receiving Grace (Mercy) He said we would get mercy by giving mercy. Grace for Grace
And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
But Paul said it’s was by Grace and The Blood
 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace
 who was put to death for our trespasses and raised for our justification.
Judgement of Others
Yahshua taught that if someone didn’t hear them, or their words not to judge, just leave them alone.
And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
Paul said he judged them even though Yahshua said he didn’t
1 Corinthians 5:3
For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
Paul taught that someone (even in the church) who commits fornication should be killed . so that his soul would be saved.
A sinner was to be rebuked before all to create fear in the other people.
1 Corinthians 5:5
To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus
1 Timothy 5:20
Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
Yahshua said to keep it private
Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
Justification see also forgiveness
Yahshua said we are justified (or not) By our words.
 for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.
But Paul said we are justified by God’s Grace
 they are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus,
 For we hold that a man is justified by faith apart from works of law.
 Since, therefore, we are now justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.
Source Of Teachings
Yahshua Said: He gave everyone God’s word, that it was truth and would sanctify them
 I have given them thy word;
 Sanctify them in the truth; thy word is truth.
But Paul said He Wasn’t Taught By Anyone
 And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who possess the Spirit.
 For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.
Yahshua made it clear many times that we are to keep our Father’s commandments
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments
says they are to keep everything God has told them “all the days of their life” and teach them to their son’s and their son’s sons.
Paul wanted us to think that no one can become righteous through the law.
Paul said the Law was given so every man would become guilty. Paul is the only ONE who ever made this statement in scripture
Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God
But the scriptures tell us differently. The Law was given so it might be well with us, for our good
O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day
One of the most dangerous doctrines Paul taught is that of predestination.
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
Because of this teaching there are so many who think all you have to do is acknowledge Yahshua is the son of God and the work is done. After all, they feel, we are predestined and therefore nothing can take away our salvation.
God gave us free will and did not predestined us to be saved or lost. What a cruel God that would make our loving Father. We would be hopeless and nothing we did would matter if we were predestined to be lost.
The way to be lost is by sinning against God, not predestination.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
John 3:16 says: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Many Christians will use this verse from Romans where Paul says there are none that are righteous to prove man can’t be. This is why it is important to read the Old Testament. Have you ever looked up the scripture that Paul is suppose to be quoting?
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one”
But no such scripture is written
Let’s look at Paul’s whole statement
“10. As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one; 11. there is none who understands; there is none who seek after God. 12. They have all gone out of the way; they have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no not one. 13. Their throat is an open tomb; with their tongues they have practiced deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips; 14. whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness. 15. Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16. destruction and misery are in their ways; 17. and the way of peace they have not known. 18. There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
Now, let’s read the actual verse in Psalms where Paul gleaned some of his statement
1. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good 2. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God 3. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one 4. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD 5. There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous 6. Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge 7. Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad”
David wasn’t speaking of every man. He was speaking of the fool, atheists, workers of abominations, corrupt, ignorant, and workers of iniquity.
Paul took the remainder of his statement, out of context from Psalm 5:9, Psalm 140:3, Psalm 10:7, Isaiah 59:7,8, and Psalm 36:1
In each passage it is speaking of evil men and it contrasts them with the upright, innocent, just, and righteous.
Paul says there is none righteous, so what does that say about what he thought of Yahshua? Yahshua was without sin, therefore righteous. Yahshua said he didn’t come to call the RIGHTEOUS, but the sinner. If there were no righteous, Yahshua would have said he came to save all, because all would have been sinners.
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one”
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.
Yahshua taught to keep THE commandments and endure till the end. Yes, there is some work involved
And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved
Yahshua taught that faith was only one of the requirements
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
For the definition of Judgments read
Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them
Paul said we are saved by Grace through faith. You will not find anyone else in the scriptures claiming this.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Paul said he had another doctrine. Absolutely nothing to do except believe. Paul is the only one that taught we are saved without works
2 Timothy 2
8. Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: (Paul)
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law
Paul uses Abraham as an example to try and prove his doctrine of faith
For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness
Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness
James, knowing what Paul taught, contradicts him
What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
James 2:17, 21, 22
17. Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 21. Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22. Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
24. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.. 26. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also
Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
“Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; BECAUSE Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My Laws.”
Seed of God
God promised Abraham his promises and covenants were for his seeds and for his seeds seeds (For all of the Jews)
“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.”
“Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.”
But Paul said God didn’t mean many seeds to include all the Jews, but only one seed, Christ.
“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.”
Yahshua knew the Gentiles (Christians) who were supposedly saved would claim to be Jews, so Yahshua said this
“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan”
No non-Jew calls themselves Jew except one, and that is the Christians
If the Jews are no longer the Jews chosen of God, why were they sealed.
“And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. ”
Abraham’s works, showed his faith
Yahshua said it was so important not to sin, that we should cut off the member of our bodythat does
And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee
Yahshua taught that we can’t serve two masters.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light
Paul said he served the law of God with his mind but he served the law of sin with his body
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin
Paul taught that everyone has sinned and that no one can live a sinless life
But that is not what the others taught
Paul wanted the Gentiles to keep on in their sin and he himself couldn’t stop sinning. How could he be a church leader if the Gentiles KNEW that sin was to be stopped?
But Yahshua didn’t say everyone had to be saved. He indicated there were righteous people
But go ye and learn what that means, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Many people argue that Paul healed others, did many miracles, and therefore was of God.
We need to read the Old Testament to find truth.
The Worship of God or Yahshua (Jesus)
Many religions tell you to come to Jesus and find salvation that he is the only way
What the old Testament says about people who do miracles but are evil.
1. If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
4 Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
