Paul & The History Of The Church [ I ]

Saul (Hakham Jews), or Paul the Apostle?

Paul the Apostle (3 M - 62 M): Hebrew name was Saul. A resident of Rome who is Jewish, was born in the year 3 BC in the city of Tarsus in southern Turkey, from both parents Jewish children of Abraham. His father was a Persian descent Benjamin Jacob (Israel) (Romans 11:1). Paul himself did not believe in the divinity of Christ. He also looked at the followers of the Messiah, just as religious and political threat to the country. Therefore, he tortured them with a painful torment and drive them either inside or outside of Jerusalem (Al-Quds).

On his way from Jerusalem to Damascus to arrest Christians who fled from Jerusalem, he said that Christ appeared to him and led him into the path of faith (Acts 22:1-11), and since then Paul bear the task of spreading Christianity, which he wrote four letters betas (assuming that he is the author of the letter to the Hebrews) which are all incorporated into the Bible and is premised on the future, through the General Church Council decision-establishment of Christianity as the format it is today. To the extent that the Christian religion became the nickname Al-Masihiyyah Paul (Paul Christian).

Paul to move where at the time of the spread of Christianity to some countries (Cyprus, Antioch, Jerusalem, Syria, and Rome), until he was killed in Rome on February 22, 62 AD (Encarta Encyclopedia). Another opinion says that he died on the events of the burning of Rome in the reign of Nero in July 64 AD (Bible Dictionary. Dictionary Encyclopedia Bible also mentions the opinion above).

At that time, the city of Tarsus, the city where Paul grew up, is central to the development of science and the philosophy of Stoicism (peace), who focused his teachings on morality, and the flow of Pantheism (Wihdatui form). Influence of this school of thought is evident in the various expressions of Paul on the basics of Christian doctrine, as explained in Bible dictionaries (Page: 196). This means that Paul has the cultural background of Greek philosophy and culture are also Jewish (Old Testament) because he was Jewish.

We will start by describing Paul about himself in his letter to the inhabitants of Rome, he said:

[1] And Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle (Apostle) and sanctified (separated) to preach the gospel of God. (Romans 1:1)

We can note the paragraph above, that the expression of the called as an apostle means that the word apostle Paul is saying. This is not the same as the Apostle says to the prophet Moses. It could be that mean in English Apostle that also means that students (hawariy) is not a prophet, as mentioned in the text of King James in English-this is the right word to describe the essence of Paul's claim that he was a student and not a prophet .
At-Tafsir At-Tathbiqi li Al-Kitab Al-Muqaddas, pages 2373 to explain the meaning of the verse, "When Paul was a Jew who is fanatical and who like to oppress Christians believe that God used to spread the gospel throughout the world."
So! Actually, Paul did not have a special treatise. Even its main task is limited (according to his understanding) in the dissemination of news and gospel, as he said:
[19] By the power of signs and miracles and the power of the spirit. Thus the round trip from Jerusalem to llirikum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. (Romans 15:19)
Meaning is reaffirmed in the following verse:
[16] I repeat again: Never should anyone who thinks I'm stupid. And if you think so, as a fool receive me so that I too may boast a little. [17] What I'm saying, I say not as one who says the word of God, but as a fool who believes that he should boast. (2 Corinthians 11:16-17)
As we see, that this is the verse which states that Paul was not an apostle or prophet, but he's trying to get into the class of prophets, without revelation. Paul also admitted openly (What I'm saying, I say not as one who says the word of God, but as a fool) the intention is that his word is not a revelation, but he was just stupidity, and he is entitled to take pride in ignorance, as written in the modern translation of the verse
[16] I say it again: Never should anyone who thinks I'm stupid. And if you think so, please accept me as a fool so I can get a little pride. (2 Corinthians 11:16)
Paul tried to lift himself by claiming that he was not much different from a messenger who has the privilege, although he himself did not mean anything, and though he boasts openly folly.
[11] Indeed, I have to be stupid, but you are forcing me. Actually I have to praise you. Because even though I do not mean at all, but in all things I am not inferior to the apostles was incredible. (2 Corinthians 12:11)
Latest translation of the Bible to clarify the meaning of the verse,
[11] Indeed, I have to be stupid, but ye have forced me. You ought to praise. Since I'm no different in all respects with the apostles was incredible. (2 Corinthians 12:11)
As we can see that Paul admitted his ignorance openly, though he was trying to get sympathy and praise from the public (you ought to praise ...). Not only that, sometimes he talks like a madman, when he explained that he is the primary waiter Christ and the best, because he's more of the burden.
[22] Are they Hebrews? I'm also the Ibran. Are they Israelites? I'm also the people of Israel. Are they descendants of Abraham? I am a descendant of Abraham. [23] Are they ministers of Christ? -I say-I like a madman over again! I am tired a lot of exhaust; more frequent in the prison; whipped out of bounds; often in danger of death. (2 Corinthians 11:22-23)
It is not true that Paul had to say it, because people are unsure of the message it carries. In any event, an apostle is not allowed to talk like a madman. How could the people will trust the words of a lunatic?

Paul argues that he was not much different at all-with the apostles who have excess, although he admitted that he was stupid and did not mean anything! And Paul continues to believe that, although he was not good at speaking.
[5] But in my opinion I'm not one bit less than the apostles who were matchless. [6] If I do not understand in terms of words, not so in terms of knowledge, for we have put it to you at all times and in all things. (2 Korintusl 1:5-6)
Paul is trying to seek the support of people, despite having to pay expensive, rneskipun he must let go of his Christian faith, he rnengatakan:
[19] Even though I am free from all men, I made myself servant of all, that I may win as many as possible. [20] Thus the Jews Yabudi I like people, that I may win the Jews. For people who live under the law I became like the people who live under the law, even if I do not live under law, that I might win those who live under the law. [21] For people who do not live under the law I became like one who does not live under the law, even if I do not live outside the law of God, because I live under the law of Christ, that I may win those not living under the law. (1 Corinthians 9:19-21)
This is a verse that reflects Paul's philosophy in general, he was reading by any means, and through any religion, to get their appeal and popularity of their community (For people who do not live under the law I became like one who does not living under the law), he tried to profit by all the risk, although he must look like a heathen!

It is clearly seen that the idea is not the revelation of God, if it is viewed from all aspects. The true revelation of God (New Testament) must be free of human acceptance and rejection of the apostles. That must be done by the apostles, was to bring religion's sake, regardless of whether it carries religious or not accepted by society. Attitude that can not be justified, if the apostle read in accordance with the wishes of a group, because it is so it can eliminate the essence of religion in divine sermons. This is a special word of God given to any messenger,
"If you turn away, then indeed I delivered to the instructions that I was sent to deliver it. And the Lord will replace you by another people, and you can not make the slightest harm to him. Verily my Lord hath care of everything." (Hud: 57)
The verse above is, if they turn away or challenge the prophets and apostles, the prophets should / apostle tells them, "I have delivered what has been assigned to me for you all, if you take it, then it is a good luck to you , and if you leave it, then Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala will replace you with a another people, then mengadzab you, you also will never make harm to him, even if you leave it. " The verses of the Qur'an with regard to it again, and to explain to us, that when a man challenged by the apostle delivered something, then there is no obligation for the apostles, but deliver it. Word of God,
"And if they turn away, your duty is only to convey to the light." (An-Nahl: 82)
Mathematical thinking and editorial continues opposes legal matters related to the above purpose, God said,
"If they turn away, say: I have to tell you all frankly. And I do not know whether the threat is near or far? Verily, He knows the words (you say) openly and He knows what ye conceal . And I may not know it (delay Allaah) a trial for you or a fun time until a little market. (Muhammad) said: My Lord give a fair decision. And our God is a Merciful God who requested his help to what you said. "(AI-Anbiyaa ': 109-112)
"If they turn away, say: I have to tell you all frankly" means: If they fight you, then say to them-now-we will split up after both know the truth, so that they bear their own sins. I hope that the Christian clergy to compare this with the editor of the editorial staff is said by the apostle Paul is stupid, wishy-washy, and hypocrites, who talk like crazy, according to his own confession. In the Qur'an, the word "turn" is mentioned 33 times as much. The words have made us cry bowed to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala, because we are negligent in performing his rights.

Therefore, the mission brought about by the apostles, was limited to carrying out the commandments of God alone, and is carrying out this task with diligence and kekhusyu'an, up to the level of vibration in the body and soul together, such as the word of God to His apostles,

"So ye Convey openly everything that was ordered (to you) and turn away from the idolaters." (Al-Hijr: 94)

This is a command that can vibrate the apostles and their followers, so that the liver and were difficult to express verbally the sentence "So Convey ye openly", which is impossible for us to understand the meaning of the sentence, but after plugging in the word of God, which describes the reflection of the decline revelation to the mountains, the word of God,
"Had We sent down the Qur 'an is to a mountain, you'll definitely see it subject to disintegrate due to the fear of God. And perumpainaan-perurnpamaan that we make to mankind so that they berftkir." (Al-Hashr: 21)
Let the Christian clergy reflect on the phrase "so they think" that verse mean?

The question that came out today! Did the Prophet Muhammad tried to find the glory of themselves and attract the sympathy of others, as Paul did? This is the word of God in the Qur'an,
"Say: Wages that I ask is for you. My reward is only from Allah, and He knows all things." (Saba ': 47)
As we all know that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'alalah immediate reward merit to the apostles. The reward of the faithful will return to itself. He was the one who will take advantage of his faith and salvation hereafter reward he hoped for, namely the attainment of the objectives of the creation of the creatures in this world, as reflected in: Faith based on reason. The point is that men of understanding faith and conduct rules / Shari'a (the importance of conducting good deeds). Implementation of the Shari'a is not something created by humans, but it is a commandment and the law of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala that we must follow, for every slave who believe in Him. This is the word of God to Moses alaihis Salam:
[16] On this day the Lord thy God commanded thee to do these statutes and regulations do them faithfully, with all your heart and all your soul. (Ulangan26: 16)
We come back to the apostle Paul (or Paul a Hawari [disciple of Jesus]), he attempted to reject any accusation lie against him in various letters.
[31] The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I lie not. (2 Corinthians 11:31)

[20] I assure you before God: What do I write to you, I'm not lying. (Galatians 1:20)

[7] To witness that I have set as a herald and an apostle-I say is true and I am not lying, and as a teacher of people who are not Jewish, in faith and truth. (Timothy 2:7)
This is how Paul defended himself throughout the letter that he had made, he admitted that he did not lie at all, he was maintaining his stupidity, as we saw in the preceding paragraphs, as Paul asked people about the folly predictions.
[1] It would be nice, if you are a little patient with my ignorance of this. Indeed you bear with me! (2 Corinthians 11:1)
Thus, according to Paul's message is simply a competition and race in the interpretation of the Gospel texts, with the other liars, as in the following text:
[12] But what I do, will still be done to prevent those who are looking for an opportunity to declare, that they cooperate with us in terms that can boast about / proud. [13] For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:12-13)
Therefore, Paul is always accuse others of lying, and false prophets, with the goal-still in his view, pride and self actualize according to contemporary views. Therefore, the message / mission according to Paul's view is simply a war of ideas with others, to actualize itself (what I do, will still be done to prevent those who are looking for an opportunity to declare, that they cooperate with us in terms that can boast / proud}.

Here's a glimpse of Paul's disciples (not the apostle), forming the figure of the Christian faith, as we see today. Look at how he describes himself and nature. Well, is there a messenger who said to his people, "Indeed, I have to be stupid but you are forcing me!" "It would be nice, if you bear with my folly!" "I said, like a madman!" "But in all things I am not inferior to the apostles extraordinary itui" "Though I do not mean at all!" "I'm not lying!"

He was trying to get glory to himself, "Actually I have to praise you!" He also always acted hypocritically in order to master them before men, to the extent that he was willing to present himself as if he were a pagan, "For people who do not live under the law I became like one who does not live under the law ! " He wanted to conquer the people even have to pay dearly, even had to pretend to be a pagan, heathen, and to live without law / Shari'a! Could it be that people like Paul can be categorized as an apostle? Word of God,
"... Is there not among you who have sense?" (Hud: 78)
Then, if konpensasinya? In the Qur'an Allah describes Muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wa treatise Sallam,
"And he said (Al-Qur'an) according to his desires. He (Al-Qur'an) is nothing else but that the inspired revelation. Yang taught him (Gabriel) is very strong." (An-Najm: 3-5)
I hope all Christian theologians read these verses again over a few times, so that they can understand its meaning. Realize that the Christian clergy, that the apostle is not said according to his desires? That he was talking about was none other than the inspired revelation, science and religion is taught (Gabriel) is very strong, not because of superstition, myth, ignorance, ignorance and not an attempt to actualize themselves.

If we talk about the letters of Paul, we do not find the word "revelation", but only once (Romans 11: 4). That, too, because he's talking about the prophet Elijah, not about himself. Are these liars notice it? Know that an apostle should be guided by the true revelation of God in every speech. Word of God,

"I do not follow except what is revealed to me. Say: Are the blind and the seeing? Will ye not menukirkan (her)?" (Al-An `am: 50)

I really hope these liars want to read the above verses over and over again, so they are aware of the truth that they believe in and find out what exactly is the true essence of God's revelation. Therefore, the issue of religion is a scientific problem that can be digested by common sense and logic, not permasalahn filled with stupidity and ignorance. "Do you not think his (her)?"

Reflection

As we have seen-on-Alenia Alenia above, that Paul, the only one spreading the gospel, or even was one of the premier interpreters of the Gospel. He also admitted it openly, and also admitted that he did not speak on behalf of the revelation that fell from the sky, but speaking on the basis of a growing culture that was followed at the time (regardless of his ignorance, which he admitted). And we know it-now-that Paul has written fourteen letters (if we assume he is the author of that letter to the Hebrews), which has been inserted into the Bible, which later, through a decision of the Superior Council of the Church, expressed as the basic teachings Christians in the current format. Pauluslah which determines the divinity of Christ, he also declared the Messiah the son of God (Trinity), he also said there was a fatal mistake, and that speaks of sacrifice and the cross, and other statements. This form of Christianity that no longer rests on Christ, but relied on Paul.

The question that came out today!

First: How can a Christian clerics allowed interpretation of Paul (Paul's letters) was infiltrated into the Bible (regardless of its truth) and consider the interpretation of (the letters of Paul's) as part of complementary and penyempuma Christianity?

Second: How could the Christian clergy to let Paul's view of Christianity, as the only correct view of Christian doctrine, and force it to everyone (view formatting Christianity is today). Even Paul's view that people are looking to ban Al-Masih with a view of the truth!

Third: What is Paul's view was correct in understanding and interpreting Christian doctrine?

We note here, if the scholars of Islam following the concept described above, it is certain interpretations of the Qur'an prime (such as Tafsir AthThabari, Qurtubi, Ibn Kathir and others) are recognized as part of the Qur'an own. This means, mixing the divine revelation to man-made text. But it never happened in Islamic teachings. So is the sunna nabawiyah (everything that comes from the Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wa Sallam either word, conduct or silence him), not including the verses of the Quran. Even the traditions nabawiyah has been classified in a separate branch of science that can be studied, deepened and tested for validity. To the extent that it can Sunnah nabawiyah graded according to mutawatir or other levels by Islamic scholars and clerics.

In general, an event like this is not a rarity in Christian thought. Because the Gospels themselves were written without a revelation from heaven (as the word "revelation" is not even mentioned in the Gospels that states how the writing of the Gospels). Even the Gospels were written in the form of stories that reflect the views of the penults of events that took place at the time of Jesus' life. It can be seen clearly in the letter of Luke (Luke). Gospel of Luke, is like a letter written by "Luke" to someone named Theophilus (At-Tafsir At-Tathbiqi not to mention its relationship with Luke) to tell him the events seen at the time, as in the opening of his Gospel which says ,
[1] Many people have tried to compile an account of persitiwa-events that have happened between us. [2] As presented to us by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the Word. [3] Therefore, after I investigated all things carefully from the beginning, I decided to write an orderly account for you, [4] so that you can mengetabui, that everything that is taught to you so true. [5] In the Age Herodas, King of Judea, was a priest named Zechariah of the group of Abia. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, her name was Elizabeth. (Luke 1:1-5)
That the Gospel of Luke (the third Gospel of the Bible) is similar to a story (narrated by Luke) for the incident that occurred at the time of Jesus' life. This form of writing the same gospel with another gospel, which was narrated by Matthew, Mark, and John-that is writing the story of an incident which took place at the time of Jesus' life, according to the history of the author, without going through the revelation. And do not mention the word "revelation" is clearly in the four Gospels, as described previously. Has been equally aware that the writing of the gospel begins between 70 and 115 years, and none of the writers knew Jesus was the Messiah, or to hear his talk. Similarly, the Gospel was first written in Greek, when Jesus spoke the language of Aramaic.

On the other hand, when we look into the idea of ​​revelation of the Qur'an (New Testament), then we will get that revelation is obvious teriihat. There is no mingling of verse and mystery in it. Almighty Allah said to His Prophet,
"And follow what is revealed unto your Lord. Verily Allah is well acquainted with what ye do." (Al-Ahzab: 2)
The concept of revelation is not a new thought in Islam, but is a form of relationship between God and His Apostles, the same as the relationship between heaven and earth. Therefore, God said to Muhammad sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam to say to mankind,
"Say: I am not the first apostle of the apostles, and I do not know what will be done and not (also) against you. I do nothing but follow what is revealed to me and I'm nothing but a warner to the light." (Al-Ahqaf: 9)
Meaning of the apostle and the treatise itself is different in the Qur'an, Allah says,
"And We sent down the Qur 'an to the truth of the Qur'an benamya and it has come down with (carrying) the truth. And We have not sent thee but as a bearer of glad tidings and a warner." (Al-Israa ': 105)
This is a brief discussion about the revelation.
