Did Paul Deceive Christians?

Posted 04-29-2024 at 06:05 PM by MysticPhD

The problem with Christian dogma is that it is carnal, not spiritual. That has been the major problem with understanding Jesus. Our carnal-minded ancestors could not grasp anything spiritual (and they were terrified of Spirits). There hasn't been any difference in interpretation and understanding of the spiritual message of Jesus for over two millennia and counting. Paul tried but was unsuccessful in overcoming the carnal minds of those who controlled the scriptures.

The Comforter has been with us since Jesus died and was "born again" as Spirit (the Holy Spirit). As Jesus unsuccessfully tried to explain to Nicodemus that is what humans do. They die and are "born again" as Spirit. Jesus's "born again" Spirit IS the Comforter He promised us. His Holy Spirit (identical to God's) has established a place in Heaven at the right hand of God for all "born again" human Soirits.

Ephesians 2:15-16 King James Version
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

What Paul said in Ephesians is that the two natures in Jesus (human and Spirit) were at enmity. The law was designed to train us to overcome the baser urges of our human nature. ALL humans have this conflict within us. Jesus merged the two into one Spirit (God's Holy Spirit) and reconciled the enmity as He demonstrated on the Cross. That is why the law was no longer relevant. The Holy Spirit of agape love replaced them because Jesus fulfilled their purpose. That is why the two commands to love God and each other cover all the laws. We can have that same Spirit if we strive as often as possible to be "in Christ"(in the states of mind associated with the "mind of Christ").

Philippians 2:5 King James Version
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

The Holy Spirit IS the True Nature of God revealed, described, and demonstrated unambiguously by Jesus. He IS agape love, kindness, mercy, compassion, gentleness, unconditional acceptance, empathy, sympathy, tolerance, long-suffering, decency, friendliness, peacefulness, joyfulness, understanding, care, concern, solicitude, solicitousness, sensitivity, tender-heartedness, soft-heartedness, warm-heartedness, warmth, love, brotherly love, tenderness, gentleness, mercifulness, leniency, lenience, consideration, kindness, humanity, humaneness, kind-heartedness, charity, benevolence, and He is non-judgmental.

When we are "in Christ" we have access to the Father in one Spirit, (the Spiritual part that was missed in Ephesians.

Ephesians 2:17-18 King James Version
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
