I think I did a good job presenting some evidence here that Paul and the Disciples were extremely sincere, and that their writings were not corrupt but rather, the Disciples truly knew each other.
I made the thread as a rebuttal to a Muslim and to many Muslim claims in general regarding early Christianity versus the belief that the Disciples were Muslims and the message was later corrupted.
So I want to read the other side of the coin from Jews, Muslims and Atheists/Agnostics regarding Paul. What evidence can you present that he was making up lies or just flat out nuts?
For Muslims: Please read the posted thread and explain how one can not see the sincerity of Paul and the other Apostles. What were they trying to gain from lying?
For Jews: What is your view of Paul in light of all he wrote? Was he crazy (he was obviously a pharisee) or was he just a liar. I know Jews don’t often concern themselves with Christianity, but I would really love some opinions and proofs.
Non-theists: Was Paul out of his mind or some conspiracy theorist? Was he lying and what was he trying to gain from his lie?
I would really love some evidence, or some serious reasoning based on logic that Paul was lying or nuts in his letters that preached love, and Early Church Doctrine.
