Paul The False Apostle?

Q. I read an article on another site I frequent regarding Paul, specifically calling him a false apostle. Have you heard similar claims and have you read this person’s work?

A. I haven’t read this man’s work but I have heard criticism of Paul along the lines that his gospel is different from Peter’s and that he “invented” Christianity and took it to the Gentiles when the Jews refused to listen to Him. These claims go all the way back to Biblical times, and Paul addressed them in 2 Cor. 11.

This criticism of Paul presupposes that the Bible is not inspired, that the Lord allowed what they say is Paul’s false doctrine to be included in the Bible and become the basic foundation of Christianity, and then confirmed it through miracles by healing Paul whenever his attackers beat him up and allowing him to heal others. I don’t buy it.
