Paul always agreed with Jesus..
No…please read your bible. This has been a fundemental thing from the emergence of Christianty. You are clearly confused if you think they agree.
Jesus said made Himself equal with God, forgiving sins and accepting Thomas calling Him God.
See the problem is you’re reading the English translation.
And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God (John 20:28)
The Gospel of John the passge you are eluding to was written in Greek. The words used in the passage are Kyrios and Theos…
“Kyrios” is a title given to people by their servants as a sign of respect.
“Theos” means gods representative, vice regent.
So in the Greek text the passage would say;
And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Kyrios and my Theos.
You have to read the original text as it is the only way to fully understand and comprehend what is being said.
The Trinity is not 1+1+1=3 but 1/3+1/3+1/3=1.
Jesus recieved broiled fish and a piece of honey comb…why? God is self-sufficient why would he need to ask for food? Are we to also to assume god also defecates? If Jesus was god why does the bible give him human traits? Why would god need to come down to his own creation to teach us a lesson but limit himself in all areas if he is all powerful? Why would he allow himself to be crucified and tortured by his creation?
If you can give me the passage where Jesus says “I am god, worship me” I will convert right here right now to Christianity.
Gospel of John chapter 14, verse 28: “for the father is greater than I”
Gospel of John John 10:29: “My father, who has given them to me, is greater than all”
Gospel of Matthew 12:28: “It is by the spirit of god I cast out demons”
Gospel of Luke 11:20 “I drive out demons by the finger of god”
Gospel of John 5:30 “By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me”
Please explain why Jesus is having to refer to someone greater than he if he is equal to god?
The Trinity is in every book of the NT.
Ofcourse it is…who says otherwise? I’m talking about the Old Testament where the trinity or any other relations are non-existent. There is not a single statement in the OT of the trinity…not one.
Paul came in contact with Jesus on the road to Damascus.
The Son of Sam also came into contact with god apparently through the physical form of a dog talking to him. There are many men who have said they have talked to god…should we believe them?
btw there are passages in the bible which warn against someone like Paul…but I’m guessing your ignoring it to make your faith more suitable without having to question clear differences in the application of faith by Jesus and Paul. The latter who has borrowed heavily from the pagans…
Paul was one of the most if not the most spiritual man who ever lived. He almost died 7 times before his final martyrdom.
I’m not a Paulian nor do I think you should be one if you put Jesus before Paul…I put Jesus before Paul. Jesus said there is one god…Paul says there are 3. Jesus said he “casts out demons with the finger of “god”...Paul and others say Jesus himself did cast out demons…
