PAUL’S NASTY OPINION OF HUMANKIND
LET NO MAN GLORY IN MEN. (I Corinthians 3:21)
THEY THAT ARE IN THE FLESH CANNOT PLEASE GOD. (Romans 8:8)
FLESH AND BLOOD CANNOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD. (I Corinth. 15:50)
For ALL HAVE SINNED, and come short of the glory of God. As it is written,
THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE: there is none that doeth good,
there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable;
THERE IS NONE THAT DOETH GOOD, NO, NOT ONE. (Rom. 3:23, 10-12)
THEIR THROAT IS AN OPEN SEPULCHRE; with their tongues they have used deceit;
the poison of asps is under their lips: whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.
Their feet are swift to shed blood: destruction and misery are in their ways:
and the way of peace have they not known: (Rom. 3:13-17)
They which are THE CHILDREN OF THE FLESH,
these ARE NOT THE CHILDREN OF GOD. (Rom. 9:8)
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to EVERY MAN that is among you,
NOT TO THINK OF HIMSELF MORE HIGHLY THAN HE OUGHT TO THINK. (Rom. 12:3)
IF A MAN THINK HIMSELF TO BE SOMETHING,
WHEN HE IS NOTHING, HE DECEIVETH HIMSELF. (Galatians 6:3)
THE NATURAL MAN RECEIVETH NOT THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
They are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Ye might learn in us NOT TO THINK OF MEN ABOVE THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN,
that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. (I Corinth. 2:14, 4:6)
As BY ONE MAN (Adam) SIN ENTERED into the world, AND DEATH by sin;
and so death passed upon all men, for that ALL HAVE SINNED. (Romans 5:12)
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.(King David)(Psalm53:3) (Paul)(Rom.3:23)
Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.
(Speak for yourself, King David.)(Psalm 51:5)
For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
(Mystery Theologian, maybe Solomon)(Ecclesiastes 7:20)
also: (Romans 5:12)(Paul) death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned
(I John 1:8)(John) If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
(I John 1:10) If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
(Romans 3:10-12)(Paul) refers to:
(Psalm 14:2-6)(King David): The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord. Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.
(Psalm 53:3)(King David talking about his enemies) Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
(Romans 3:13-14) refers to:
(Psalm 10:7-10)(King David): His mouth (the wicked’s) is full of cursing and deceit and fraud:
under his tongue is mischief and vanity. He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages:
in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are set privily against the poor.
He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
(Please note that King David doesn’t get as nasty as Paul, and that he’s referring specifically to the wicked who hurt the poor financially, which Paul doesn’t mention.)
(I John 1:8, 10)(John) I we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
JESUS’ GLOWING OPINION OF HUMANKIND
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?
And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. (Matt.10:29-31)
Is it not written in your law, “I said, Ye are gods?” I have said, ye are gods;
and all of you are children of the most high. (John 10:34)(Psalm 82:6)
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth:
but I have called you friends. (John 15:15)
The Kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:20-21)
PAUL LAUNCHES THE INQUISITION
PAUL: THEY WHICH COMMIT SUCH THINGS ARE WORTHY OF DEATH
THERE BE SOME THAT TROUBLE YOU,
AND WOULD PERVERT THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST. (Galatians 1:7)
For many walk, of whom I HAVE TOLD YOU OFTEN, and now tell you even weeping,
that THEY ARE THE ENEMIES OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST:
WHOSE END IS DESTRUCTION, WHOSE GOD IS THEIR BELLY,
and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things. (Philippians 3:18-19)
Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity.
Continue in his goodness: otherwise THOU ALSO SHALT BE CUT OFF. (Romans 11:22)
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
for THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE ARE NOT CARNAL,
but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;
CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS,
and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God,
and BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT to obedience of Christ;
and having IN A READINESS TO REVENGE ALL DISOBEDIENCE,
when your obedience is fulfilled. (II Corinthians 10:3-6)
(Some) being filled with all unrighteousness, FORNICATION, WICKEDNESS,
covetousness, maliciousness, full of ENVY, murder, DEBATE, deceit,
malignity whisperers, backbiters, HATERS OF GOD, despiteful, PROUD,
BOASTERS, inventors of evil things, DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS,
without understanding, covenant breakers, WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION,
implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that
THEY WHICH COMMIT SUCH THINGS ARE WORTHY OF DEATH,
not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them (kill their friends too). (Rom. 1:29-32)
PAUL ON KILLING HERETICS: A NICE COMMUNITY EVENT
It is reported commonly that THERE IS FORNICATION AMONG YOU,
and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles,
that one should have his father’s wife. And ye are puffed up,
and have not rather mourned, that HE THAT HATH DONE THIS DEED
MIGHT BE TAKEN AWAY FROM AMONG YOU.
For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already,
as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed. (I Corinthians 5:1-3)
THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ. (Romans 6:23)
In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, WHEN YE ARE GATHERED TOGETHER,
and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
TO DELIVER SUCH AN ONE UNTO SATAN
FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF THE FLESH,
THAT THE SPIRIT MAY BE SAVED in the day of the Lord Jesus. (I Corinth. 5:4-5)
For THE WRATH OF GOD IS REVEALED from heaven against all ungodliness
and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may
be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shown it unto them. (Rom. 1:18-19)
Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
PURGE OUT therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump,
as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us. (I Corinth. 5:6-7)
Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world?
And if THE WORLD SHALL BE JUDGED BY YOU,
are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
Know ye not that WE SHALL JUDGE ANGELS?
How much more things that pertain to this life? (I Corinth. 6:2-4)
EXAMINE YOURSELVES whether ye be in the faith; prove yourselves. (II Corinth. 13:5)
What indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what zeal, yea, WHAT REVENGE! (II Corinth. 7:11)
For Moses truly said unto the fathers, “A prophet shall the Lord your God
raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me;
him (Jesus) shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
And it shall come to pass, that EVERY SOUL,
WHICH WILL NOT HEAR that prophet,
SHALL BE DESTROYED FROM AMONG THE PEOPLE. (Acts 3:22-23)
(I Corinth. 5:6) Paul turns on its head what Jesus said in (Matthew 13:33):
“The Kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, til the whole was leavened.”
Paul also wrote:
This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
A little leaven (“false” doctrine) leaveneth the whole lump. (Galatians 5:8-9)
MYSTERY THEOLOGIANS SPEAK: “THEM THAT SIN REBUKE BEFORE ALL”
THEM THAT SIN REBUKE BEFORE ALL,
THAT OTHERS ALSO MAY FEAR. (I Timothy 5:20)
That which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing,
WHOSE END IS TO BE BURNED. For our God is a consuming fire. (Heb. 6:8, 12:29)
For IF WE SIN WILFULLY after that we have received the knowledge of the truth,
THERE REMAINETH NO MORE SACRIFICE FOR SINS,
but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and FIERY INDIGNATION,
WHICH SHALL DEVOUR THE ADVERSARIES. (Hebrews 10:26-27)
IT IS A RIGHTEOUS THING WITH GOD TO RECOMPENSE TRIBULATION
TO THEM THAT TROUBLE YOU. (II Thessalonians 1:6)
He that despised Moses’ law died WITHOUT MERCY under two or three witnesses:
of how MUCH SORER PUNISHMENT suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy,
WHO HATH TRODDEN UNDER FOOT THE SON OF GOD, and
HATH COUNTED THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT, wherewith he was sanctified,
AN UNHOLY THING, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
For we know him that hath said, “VENGEANCE belongeth to me,
I WILL RECOMPENSE”, saith the Lord. And again, “The Lord shall judge his people.”
IT IS A FEARFUL THING TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD. (Heb. 10:28-31)
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not,
and ye shall not be condemned. (Luke 6:37)
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged,
and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. (Matthew 7:2)
Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven. (Luke 6:37)
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses,
neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. (Matt. 6:14-15)
