Pauline Christianity is a term applied to what some perceive as the religious teaching unique to Paul's writings and distinct from the gospel of Jesus. That is, Jesus taught one thing, and Paul tau...
We should not believe any false teaching about Christianity. One should remember that Christianity is not a religion but is a belief system. There is no separate Pauline Christianity. Those who preach against Pauline epistles are charlatans and evangelical hucksters who twist the Bible truths.
Acts 19:8 And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God. Acts 20:25 And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. Acts 28:23 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening. Acts 28:31 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Galatians 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 2 Thessalonians 1:5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: Acts 14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. Paul's christianity was the same as his lord and saviour Jesus whose great message was about the soon coming Kingdom of God..... Paul also preached about the death and resurrection of Jesus and how it was necessary for Jesus to be a sacrificial sin offering in order that we could be reconciled to his God and ours, his Father and ours. Paul taught the things about Jesus that related to how we will co-rule and co-inherit all things with him when he ushers in the kingdom upon his return. Paul outlined how we are to prepare for the coming kingdom by living out the lord Jesus in our lives, in loving our God and Father will all the energy of the spirit of Jesus in us and loving our neighbors as Jesus loved all people willingly giving up his precious life in order that all men might have the opportunity to be delivered from the wrath that is surely coming!
The Pauline gospel is the gospel that was boldly preached by Paul, Romans 1:16, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.". As for this purpose he was called. Romans 1:1, "Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God," Again, Galatians 1:15,16, "But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:" So then, the other disciples who took notice of its effectualness, give approving testimony in Galatians 2, verse 7, "when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter,", verse 9 "...James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision." Why was this gospel so mighty? Cause it was extraordinarily given to him by the Lord himself! Galatians 1:11,12, "But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." This gospel, is so special that it comes with its own stern warning, Galatians 1:8, " But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed." Finally; 1 Corinthians 11:1, (KJV) "Be you followers of me, even as I also am of Christ." Paul gives us assurance that it is of the Lord.
