Yeah. Good luck with that, Bill. The reluctance of those outside the Family to accept the truth can at times seem heartbreaking to the point of utter debilitation. But I guess we gotta keep on trying, somehow, some way.

cgb2: Thanks for the thoroughness of your post.

I recently found this writing by Hermann Detering:

It is his opinion that Marcion wrote Galatians and probably many more of the "Pauline" letters. More reason to ignore the letters.

It's difficult to "ignore" the doctrines of one who assisted in the beguiling spiritual murder of billions who hold his letters as "scripture". Through observation and reason, I've come to conclude that Constantine wasn't the first prominant person to blend pagan myth, it was Paul (Shaw'ul).

I was recently reminded of this when a former associate shared a rebuttal to a mega church ad for easter. Although I could follow it, the average english reader would get lost due to the insistance on not using any english words with "pagan roots" and a lot of hebronics. The "proofs" were mostly Pauline quotes.

If I get a response to my "You can have Shaw'ul all to yourself", I would not be surprised it to be full of - "You're in the flesh and not in the spirit". Ackkk the pagan myth that the flesh is inherently evil (Yah said his creation including "flesh" was towb) and again Paul's sole focus on Messiah (repackaged in pagan myth) and salvation through "faith & confession".

Yep could be true. Regardless of the origin here's what one gets from Paul's letters only:

I thought it was very interesting that the words "kicking against the goads" is also used in Numbers in relation to Balaam's vision with his donkey.

The elephant headed god in Hindu (Ganesh) holds an elephant goad in his right hand. The early translators realized that it was a common proverb in Greek well before Luke wrote Acts.

Goad
1. sting -s : a prick, a point; hence, generally, a sting, a thing of venom or poison.
2. prick [noun] -s : a point, a prick; hence, a sting
We see the translation of “prick” instead of “goad” in the King James Version:
