Puzzle number 9(of 1250 puzzles)
they said that every word , every letter of the Bible is inspired God`s word, word by word ..let see
if you ask mr. Banana pie , was Paul (the apostle) inspired by God when he wrote his letters , banana pie`s answer would be : OH YEAH
Was Paul inspired By God :
Paul (the inspired) tells us (in God`s inspired Book) that he is determined to winter in Nicopolis (personaly I don`t care , do you?)
12 When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter.
what has this statement to do with God and his inspiration
the inspired Paul , asked his friend timothy (in the inspired Book), to bring him his jacket and his books:[/B]
II timothy 4:10-13
10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.
11 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.
12 And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus.
13 The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the parchments.
why are Paul`s jacket and his books , so important for us , so God has decided to put it in his inspired Book ?
so was Paul inspired by God , when he wrote his letters??
if we study this matter closely you will find many obvious examples of Paul admiting that he was not inspired ?
1 Corinthians 7:10-12
10Now, for those who are married I have a command that comes not from me, but from the Lord. A wife must not leave her husband. 11But if she does leave him, let her remain single or else go back to him. And the husband must not leave his wife.
in this Verse Paul is saying that this is not his word , but God`s words , but in the upcoming verses we find Paul saying:
12Now, I will speak to the rest of you, though I do not have a direct command from the Lord. If a Christian man...........
very obvious confession , Paul admited that this is not the God`s word but his own
one more obvious example:
1 Corinthians 7:25
25Now, about the young women who are not yet married. I do not have a command from the Lord for them. But the Lord in his kindness has given me wisdom that can be trusted, and I will share it with you. 26Because of the present crisis......
again Paul admiting that he does not have the Lord`s permission
one more example:
2Listen! I, Paul, tell you this: If you are counting on circumcision to make you right with God, then Christ cannot help you.
he said I PAUL , he did not say I THE INSPIRED PAUL
one more example :
1 Corinthians 1
14I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15for now no one can say they were baptized in my name. 16(Oh yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas. I don't remember baptizing anyone else.)
this is very obvious that Paul has no Idea what he was talking about ,he said:
1.he did not baptize any except 2 men : Crispus and Gaius
2.all of a sudden he accidently remebered that he actualy baptized the household of Stephanus also
3.then again the inspired Paul does not remeber baptizing anybody else.( so it could be one or 20000 baptized , Paul is not sure while he was inspired )
so what is going on here ,it seems that the inspired man is unsure of what he is doing
so question to apple Banana & CO , why is Paul`s Jacket and Books are so important , Why Paul wasn`t sure what he has done before (in his so called the inspired letter)
and who cares where would Paul spend his winter ???<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
any comment from Banana ???
I challenge Banana and his Exmuslims company if they can give any answer ?
