    Love the article and as a pastor I named all those pastors who said and practiced such things. Thank you for your ministry.

    I appreciate this article. It is well said and biblically supported that Paul was converted from ‘Saul’ by the Lord Jesus Himself. I recommend reading just Paul’s Epistles (in isolation from the rest of the New Testament), as an exercise in education in the Gospel of Grace. Paul was specifically chosen by God, taught by the risen Christ to be an “Apostle of the Gentiles.” (Because the Nation Israel rejected their ‘expected’ Messiah) And, he was given new dispensations within the ‘grace gospel’ – within ‘The Mystery’ that had not been revealed at any time before God’s call on Saul/Paul. If more churches and preachers/teachers would ‘get off their high horse’ of modern Bible interpretation (including in seminaries!), and read/study/re-read/study what Paul teaches “for the church – the body of Christ”, they might stay more biblically authentic and ignore all the ‘humanistic’ false doctrine that has overwhelmed evangelical Christianity in the last 50 years.

    WE ARE GOD PLEASERS NOT MAN PLEASERS. Great article, thank you, for encourage the saints to stand firm without trembling! Love the Hymn.

    The title of this article reminds me of an extreme SDA woman who in trying to keep the law joined with a group that only accepted the Lord’s Apostles. This was no doubt because of what Paul said about the law.
    I shared with her what the Apostle Peter said about Paul – Paul who publickly corrected Peter!
    In 2 Peter 3:15-17 he wrote – our beloved brother Paul; . . . . wisdom given to him; . . . things hard to be understood which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do the other Scriptures to their own destruction.”
    Note, Peter here calls Paul’s writings “scriptures”.
    As Paul’s ministry was especially to the Church, his teaching about the rapture would have been hard for
    Peter to understand.

    You are so right.. I asked two well known pastors and author s what the thought of spiritual formation., They never replied.
