Pauls Gospel is the Gospel thAt saves us today.It is what you are going to be asked about on Judgement Day.

John 12:48, "He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day."

In peace

Romans2:16.    “ in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to MY GOSPEL”

Who do you think inspired Paul to say these words? The Bible states that ALL Scripture is inspired by the Holy Spirit .If Paul said it— Jesus said it.The few times he writes about HIS personal opinion,he makes it clear to the reader.If one refuses to obey the one that Jesus declared His “chosen vessel”, you are in dangerous territory—- To reject Paul , you may be rejecting Jesus too.

God uses all true believers to spread the Gospel, to teach, to preach and to be His “chosen” servants.  Paul, and we too, God’s followers, have work to do, mainly to spread the Gospel of Christ, just as Paul did.  

- Selah

2 Corinthians 5:20 

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 

1 Peter 2:9-10 

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

Excellant point, but God chose Paul to do waaaay bigger things than we do,obviously.Many if the things he was teaching—- secrets God had held for Millenia— were so different from the ways of Paul’s Jewish brethren ,God gave him the power to raise the dead and perform all types of miracles to verify he  was unique and one chosen by Christ Himself.

Amen!  Of course! :) 

The point I was trying to make is that Paul was a mere human that God chose.  Paul was not God, just a human. God will choose who He will choose, and He chose Paul to write most of the New Testament!    -Selah

ALL would do WELL to remember that .     Did I tell you I have all joy in the LORD .

Happy is the one who keeps HIS sayings .     Now for the saying that will get attacked .    Did you know , by grace I have been a single man for many years .

Wanna know why I DONT REMARRY .   CAUSE IT WOULD BE ADULTERY .     Oh me and oh my ,   YET happy I am .

HE who does not forsake ALL and follow CHRIST .  ITS ALL ABOUT LOVING ALL HIS SAYINGS , not just some , but ALL.

AND if we have the SPIRIT on our heart, WE WOULD LOVE AND DO HIS SAYINGS and WHAT A JOY THEY TRULY ARE .

SO ,   let me leave us with what JESUS said and paul said too.

HE who puts away his wife, Save for the cause of fornication , or death of course ,    And remarries another COMMITS ADULTERY and so does she who was put away .

SO HAVE WE REALLY received HIS WORDS .      For many I trow not .  I see all sorts of folks twisting whatever saying of his , GETS in their way .

No .   its just so long as one is in willfull sin ,   they in grave danger .

Why do you think paul said , SO then if while her husband lives , She be married to another man she shall be called an adulteress.

But not if that lady tells that second husband ,  CEE YA .     THEY MUST CEASE the SIN , REPENT OF IT .   

Christains should never have sat under men that remarried and remarried and kept making excuses .  

Will adulterers inherit eternal life .  NOPE .  Ye must repent .  Notice paul said she will be CALLED an adulteress so long as she is married to that other man

SO long as her husband lives .    THEY TOOK JESUS SERIOUS .   I SUGGEST we do the same .

Save for fornication or death .   only way to be remarried to another .  save for fornication or death .   

OH they can be separated ,  But let them remain SINGLE or BE RECONCILIED to one another again .  

I am sticking with JESUS and pauls words .    Fornication or death .

Will God honor gay marriage . NOPE .   IF two gay men were married and one repents and comes to Christ , CAN HE STAY MARRIED   .  NOPE

Well gay marriage aint the only sin .  SO IS ADULTERY .  OH but it is .  adultery is sin too .   

I know you KNOW that .  I am jus making a point is all.

Ps.    You throw those hands up and praise the LORD .    From here on out , let no man or woman EVER encourage one who is married

that its okay to leave that woman or its okay to leave that man ,  and heck GO get you a new one .  WRONG .  ITS ADULTERY if they do .  LEST it be for fornication

OR unless the spouse dies of course .

Amen.

Even this one: Matthew 6:24, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."

Jesus is clearly saying that we either choose God or mammon. We can't do both. Yet who receives this word? Who quits their job and stop serving mammon in order to serve God alone?

Like you mentioned, people twist Jesus' words to get their way...
