Saul The Apostle
by Samantha Kennedy
Hello I am Cardinal Kennedy and welcome to the Sunday service in UK. So I shall start.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. Therefore, let us pray in this way:
“Our Father who act in Heaven, hallowed be thy name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory,
for the ever and ever. Amen.
I would like to ask now for prayer requests, which you can place in the comments and I will pray for them after the service.
Now I would like to recite the creed.
I believe in God the Father almighty, creator of the heavens and earth.
I believe in Yeshua the Christ, His transcendent Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born to mankind.
He was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead; on the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven and was seated at the right hand of The Father.
He has come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Word of God, the returned Christ, Lord RayEl.
In His great commandment: Love God, Love Each Other.
In the holy Ecumenical Order of Christ.
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
The teaching for today’s service is Saul the Apostate, I shall begin..
Did Saul the Pharisee infiltrate the early Christian churches just so that he could corrupt it from the inside? Saul, a highly educated man,
wrote some brilliant works, but quite often contradicted the teachings of Christ and the first apostles. This caused much confusion,
corruption, and splintering of the early faith.
Acts 7:60 (DRB) – “…And Saul was consenting to his death.”
Acts 8:3 (DRB) – “But Saul made havock of the church, entering in from house to house, and dragging away men and women, committed them to
We won’t go into all of the contradictions that Saul taught, as that would be a book in itself, but much has already been compiled by other
Acts 9:1-5 (DRB)
1 “AND Saul, as yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest,”
2 “And asked of him letters to Damascus, to the synagogues: that if he found any men and women of this way, he might bring them bound to
3 “And as he went on his journey, it came to pass that he drew nigh to Damascus. And suddenly a light from heaven shined round about him.”
4 “And falling on the ground, he heard a voice saying to him: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?”
5 “Who said: Who art thou, Lord? And he: I am Yeshua whom thou persecutest. It is hard for thee to kick against the goad.”
And later Saul says:
2 Corinthians 11:13-14 (DRB)
13 “For such false apostles are deceitful workmen, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.”
14 “And no wonder: for Satan himself transformeth himself into an angel of light.”
We must take note that nowhere else in the Bible does it say that Satan can transform into an angel of light, these are only the words of
Saul. Actually, the Bible states the opposite, so why does Saul state this? Well, he was a Roman Pharisee who had vowed to destroy
Isaiah 5:20 (JPS) – “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that change darkness into light, and light into darkness; that change
bitter into sweet, and sweet into bitter!”
All will be judged, and only then can it truly be said whether Saul, whose name was changed to Paul, was working for good or for evil.
What cannot be disputed is that his teachings have led people away from the teachings of Christ, and possibly caused many Christians to end
up in Hell.
Some would go even further and call him “antichrist” because his teachings are so opposed to what Christ taught. Others would call him
“false prophet”, because his false teachings led to the establishment of the Roman Catholic Church, and all of the “Pauline Doctrine”
Christian churches that are teaching apostate lies.
We’re not suggesting that there is no truth in SOME of what Paul says, we’re only suggesting that Paul has replaced VERY IMPORTANT truths
given by Christ, with his own personal philosophy and context.
A good example of this is in Romans 10:13. Paul leads everyone to believe that simply calling upon the Lord will grant salvation, but when
you read the actual scriptures he is quoting from (Joel 2:32/Acts 2:21), it becomes clear that this is specifically referencing the end times,
and the people of Jerusalem who are gathered to the Lord at Mount Zion… Without that context, Paul has led billions of Christians into
believing a false, “simple” salvation scenario.
In Romans 10:5, Moses is quoted by Paul, based on the scriptures of Leviticus 18:5 and Ezekiel 20:11, where God specifically states that
adherence to the law (God’s statutes, judgements and ordinances) is the way to life… NOWHERE in those scriptures does God say that the
path to life is by “faith”, that is something Paul just adds in, which is HERESY! This has completely misled billions of people into
thinking they do not need to obey God’s laws.
In Romans 10:10-11, Paul says: “For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.
It is just as the scripture says: ‘Everyone who believes in Him will not be put to shame.’”
Psalm 25:3 and Isaiah 49:23 are the scriptures Paul is referring to there, but what he does is VERY deceptive, because he is equating
“not be put to shame” with being “saved”. The verses in Psalms and Isaiah make no such inference, they only suggest that a believer
will not be shamed by their belief… HUGE difference, and again, the cause of billions of people going astray.
But perhaps the most important and glaring proof that Paul was a heretic, can be found in his teachings in Romans 7:6, Romans 8:2,
Romans 6:14, and Romans 6:15, where Paul makes clear his belief that the followers of Christ are no longer under the law…
But Christ said:
Matthew 5:17-20 (DRB)
17 “Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.”
18 “For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled.”
19 “He therefore that shall break one of these least commandments, and shall so teach men, shall be called the least in the kingdom
of heaven. But he that shall do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
20 “For I tell you, that unless your justice abound more than that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”
So clearly Paul was teaching a doctrine that was directly opposed to what Christ taught, and in Matthew 5, Christ made it very clear what would
become of someone teaching this heresy.
These are the main reasons we find it very difficult to defend Paul’s actions or intent, and why every true follower of the Lord should drag
their loved ones away from any church that claims “a person is saved by faith alone”!
One thing I must state is that Paul never witnessed the words of the Lord, He was never involved with seeing the miracles. He never sat
with the Lord and his Disciples and hear the teachings directly. He was never part of them and therefore had no clue to the real truth.
Yet, he is put on this pedestal by Christians who believe him over the real Disciples.
He had his own agenda and that is clear by the very actions and words from Paul himself.
A true Christian would believe the Apostles over a Pharoses who was never witness to the Son of God.
I will now give the closing Blessing =
May our Heavenly Father bless and protect you.
May He face you and shed His light and grace upon you.
May He grant you peace, joy and everlasting love. Amen
Please join our fellow clergy later for their Sunday Services.
And I will say on last thing – Love God Love Each Other Amen.
