Q. I enjoy reading your articles but I’d really like a direct answer to a direct question. I feel the question of whether or not Paul wrote all his letters was a yes or no question and you gave a round about answer. It should be answered and then fell free to elaborate on it after. So, what’s the answer? Did he write them or not?
A. I thought my answer was obvious. In the 2nd paragraph I said, “Pauline authorship is easily proven.” That means it’s easy to prove that Paul wrote his epistles. As a matter of fact, all you have to do is look at the first word of every one of them. It’s Paul, which identifies him as the author. If you believe the Bible is the word of God and you believe that God can’t lie, then this should be proof enough.
