Are the writings of the Apostle Paul inspired?


1 Corinthians 7:12

ESV - 12 To the rest I say (I, not the Lord) that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her.

The answer is in the question.
Apostle means "a messenger, one specially sent".
Paul insists on his direct commission from Christ (Ro 1:1; 1Co 1:1; Ga 1:1,15ff.) along with the rest of the Apostles chosen by Jesus.

So if Paul is an Apostle, his writings are therefore inspired.
