    Your Opinions
    "There is no conflict between Paul and Jesus. Jesus showed us the life He wants us to live. Paul explained exactly who Jesus Christ was and what He did."

    "If you follow Paul, if you accept any of his exclusive doctrines, you are ignorantly disloyal to Jesus. Christianity, as we know it, is nothing but Paulism."
