If you are holding the coat of the guy who is killing a defenseless christian on Monday and preaching christianity yourself on Tuesday--either you are
crazy or you are suspiciously unhinged.
Paul did NOT meet Jesus. Paul says he was BLINDED. Who did he see? How does he know who or what happened to him?
Was he having a breakdown mentally? Guilt maybe?
Or, was something more sinister going on?
Paul destroyed those who knew, believed and loved Jesus.
Paul fought against the message of persons who walked with and talked to Jesus.
Paul was an antagonist and a damned clever one, too.
What happened to the message when Paul started writing about it?
Paul CHANGED the message himself while CLAIMING to be personally commissioned by this very same Jesus.
Why aren't we at least mildly skeptical about Paul's motives?
What if Paul was a clever double-agent?
Remember, Pauls letters came first on the scene. The Gospels followed but in the writings of those gospels there seems to be no
awareness of the Paul message.
I find it startling.
