Paul: A Liar And Charlatan

In the previous chapters, we have outlined the origins of Paul and how he rose to prominence as the founder of the religion which is today known as Christianity. Having established that Paul was never acquainted with the original teachings of Jesus (PBUH), we aim to demonstrate that this liar never was inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Let us now take a look at what Paul was reported to have said:

1 Corinthians 7:25 – 28
25 Now about virgins: I have no command from the Lord, but I give a judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy.
26 Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for you to remain as you are.
27 Are you married? Do not seek a divorce. Are you unmarried? Do not look for a wife.
28 But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this.

There are a few important points to be mentioned here:

  • Paul never met Jesus in person while Jesus was on earth. Paul became a prophet” by claiming that Jesus appeared to him on his way to Damascus.
  • The Jewish Law allows for a man to divorce his wife if she is not pleasing to him.
  • Paul was a Jew, and from his writings he seemed to be very knowledgeable about the Jewish Law.
  • Paul, who had never met Jesus, was obviously unaware of the fact that Jesus forbade divorce between the husband and the wife, except in the case of adultery.

Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 7:27 exposed him to be a liar, because if the Holy Spirit was truly inspiring him, then he would not have uttered such statement! Paul, the Jew, was talking about divorce in general. Yes, the Jewish Law allows divorce between ordinary couples, but Jesus had forbidden it.

In Christianity, divorce between ordinary couples (when neither one of them committed any major sin against the other) is strictly forbidden, and Paul’s general advice for his followers to not seek a divorce makes it clear that he was ignorant of what Jesus had taught. The Holy Spirit would have inspired Paul to be speak only about those whose spouses had cheated on them to not get divorced from them, which we have no idea how this would have helped his followers.

Paul in fact was speaking in general terms, which can be summarised as:

  • Are you married? Do not seek a divorce.
  • Are you unmarried? Do not look for a wife.

Paul was clearly not speaking about adultery here. The two parts of 1 Corinthians 7:27, when put together, are clearly speaking in general terms and to all people in general. What man or woman can live with an adulterous spouse? And why should they not divorce when Jesus(P) allowed them to do so?

Let us look at what Jesus(P) said:

Matthew 5
31 It has been said, Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’
32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.

There is no question that Paul was unaware of this law by Jesus(P), and if he truly was inspired by the Holy Spirit, then the latter would not have deceived him like that.

Paul was a liar and a charlatan who claimed to be a prophet” sent from God Almighty, that he was inspired by the Holy Spirit. Clearly, the only spirit that inspired him was none other than the spirit of Satan.


  1. oh..i think u should study theology in order to understand, sometimes we canot just read it based on the word one
    if not will bcome fanatic

  2. In the name of Allah, most gracious, most merciful.

    Well a clear contradiction noted here, even a layman (non theology) can see. Hope to see more articles, continue your cause for knowledge and truth so that many Muslims can equip ourself to face our enemies.

  3. Assalamuailaikum

    Again, you (Nasara) took our Quranic verses out of context especially when it calls killing of unbelievers and famous Al Baqrah (Surat 2) ayaat 256 : no compulsion in religion.

    Now here my bro muslim now take it out of context as well.

    Masha Allah.

  4. I just stumbled across your website today and read this article.

    My main issue is with the statement:

    The two parts of 1 Corinthians 7:27, when put together, are clearly speaking in general terms and to all people in general.”

    Paul was in fact addressing a very specific issue in the Corinthian church (1 Cor 7:1). There were people within the church at Corinth teaching that all sexual relations were wrong, and therefore those who are married should cease and that those who are single should not seek marriage at all.

    Paul was teaching in response to a specific situation- note how in verse 26 he says because of the present crisis.” Paul doesn’t want Christians to get divorced based on the false teaching that all sexual relations are evil. And he also speaks against the converse- every virgin doesn’t have to seek marriage.

    In fact, Paul addressed another specific situation in verses 12 – 16. What happens when one spouse is a Christian and the other isn’t.

    If you would like to continue a dialogue about this or any other issue you have concerning the New Testament, feel free to email me. [mjoettinge21[at]tntech[dot]edu]

    May Allah guide the christians and open their eyes to the truth.


  6. Wow! Everything Saul taught was a lie, he went againts the old testament and changed everything God taught, may his soul rst in hell.

  7. I have for the last several years been on a quest for truth based on my belief that the internet is a gift to all mankind on that path. As a Christian believer of a certain denomination for 50 some years, I realized that my faith has been based on what I was told by my leaders as to church foundation and history; unable until the internet age to independently confirm that information to be true. I found out decisively that it was not true. My faith otherwise remains intact; but it made me realize just how fragile truth is, and how valuable. It is the story of the clock and the compass. You can work your butt off and suffer no end of trouble by ignoring the compass full speed ahead watching the clock. Going in the wrong direction not knowing the truth is futile no matter how strong your belief and your drive to succeed may be.

    Going back to the God (Allah) of Abraham we have common ground; but some things that happened thereafter sent us in opposing directions. Does an absolute truth exist independent of the many different human beliefs? I believe that it does, for God said so to the prophets of old and he is never-changing. So how do we find that all-important true path? If we can eliminate errors or false teachings we improve our compass and avoid going in wrong directions. That will help our progress and may open the door to further truth found along a better path.

    I too have had my doubts about Saul/Paul. He taught a different gospel than the other Apostles saying only faith and not works (the law) was required, misleading many. Also, the Lord’s anointed servants were required to obey the law explicitly .…. in fact that was one of the criterion on which they were chosen. If a candidate were to have broken the highest laws such as murder or adultery, he would not qualify. We are told that Saul was an accomplice to the murder of Steven before his conversion. I understand that he also was known by the name of Simon Magus and that there was record of him violently attacking and injuring Peter on the temple steps. I am fairly sure this would not be suitable behavior for an Apostle! I have wondered if the great words attributed to him were taken from the works of others since there are many other worthy contemporary servants of the Lord who were not heard from.

    There was certainly room for other great books to have been canonized .… some in the apocrypha and also the pseudepigrapha had important knowledge. The Book of Enoch, for example, told of the fallen angels and the giants called Nephilim they brought that were the curse of mankind. Giants also existed after the flood that inhabited the promised land. David was commanded to destroy them and inherit the land of Canaan. They were not Gods creation, but Satans; and cursed for destruction as were the giants before Noah. Interestingly, these Nephilim are prophesied to return during the Great Tribulation to enforce the mark of the beast, so we should know more about them for sure.

  8. I believe Paul’s writings are a test to see who we will follow, Jesus or Paul. Jesus said he did not come to abolish the law, Paul said no more law, Jesus said to go and teach all nations teaching them to observe whatsoever I have commanded you, Paul said the law was just for the jews, Jesus said there is one flock, one shepherd, not two standards one for jew one for gentile. Here is the patience of the saints, here are they that keep the commandment of God and the faith of Jesus. See You need both! We need faith and the law not faith instead of the law. Don’t fail the test, follow Jesus, not man. Ask God for his spirit to guide you. You do not want to live in a world free of the law. David loved the law and we should too. 1 John 2:4 Any one who says, I know him, but keeps not the law is a liar. Paul is a liar. go thru the narrow gate, not the popular wide gate.

  9. When Paul stated all scripture is inspired by God, his own letters had not yet been compiled into a book called the New Testament as it had not yet been made. Even Paul was not speaking of his own letters. Also look at the book of Job, his friends quoted scripture and sounded oh so religious but what did God have to say about their remarks? He was not pleased with them and their words were not God inspired yet they’re in the Bible. Not everything in the modern Bible is God breathed. Quit following Paul, he is not the savior, he is not God. His teaching is the opposite of Jesus’ teachings. God tests/tries us to see if we are really following him, choose Jesus.

  10. One more thing, there is more than one story of Paul’s calling. The stories don’t jive. In one the witnesses see something but do not hear anything and in another version in the book of acts, the witnesses do not see anything but they do hear something. It is fabricated. The evidence is there. If anyone disagrees with Jesus’ gospel it is a lie.
