    Galatians 2:7-8 7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter 8 For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles: Paul had a mission from Jesus himself to reach out to Gentiles and Peter to reach out to Jews.
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Paul is telling us who he was and not who he is after he got saved.

    1st Timothy 1:[12] And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
    [13] Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

We are seeking for answers or just want to express ourselves to others in what we have learned, that is good. We must keep searching God until that day comes. We can only hope that people will find God. God bless you. ....
