Paul – the Missing Person in the Trinity

I’m sorry, but I’m really, really fed up with people using Paul as a whipping stick for anyone who holds to Torah. I just finished an hour long phone conversation with someone who verbally attacked my wife for believing in Torah. It’s one thing to have a biblical discuss, and another to make personal accusations of someone simply because they “follow the Law.”

Why do people who stress “grace over law” have to be soooooo UN-gracious and ?

At this point I really wish Paul would have either not existed, or would have spoken in such a way as to not give people ammunition to slam Torah and the people who live by it. Is he really wearing a halo right now, or polishing his horns? I’m irritated. I’m distraught. I’m tired.

YES, I HAVE READ GALATIANS!

One day, Paul… One day…

One thought on “Paul – the Missing Person in the Trinity”

  1. Shalom Darren,

    You are in good company with your frustrations regarding Paul. Namely Peter:

    2 Peter 3:14-16
    Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation — as also our beloved brother Paul , according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.

    So pray for those “untaught and unstable people” who “twist to their own destruction”.

    Interestingly this passage from Peter seems to put Paul’s teachings on the level of Scripture because of the wording “as they do also the rest of the Scriptures” as if Paul’s writings are included.

    Shalom
