I have trouble appreciating some of the teachings of St Paul and wish to share this.
Feeling confused and disagreeing I question teachings like:
“All things are made lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
And in 1 COR. 9
20And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;
21To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.
22To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
God laws are constant, just and for the good of man. And so we see through the history of God revelations to mankind that all Prophets not only preached and did practice same.
Not only did following God s laws bring peace and justice it also prepares us for better lives in the hereafter.
Now, St. Paul is claiming to have been given exception to this and I wonder by whom, where, and under what authority [rationale]
MT 10 v4: The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
Is Paul given a license do all it takes to gain converts?
There are more verses like this I believe some of us may have had similar view about.
