    Paul's Gospel 1 Corinthians 15-1-4, Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and was buried and rose from the dead three days in the power of God. If we know that we are a sinner, believe in the finished work of the cross, what more do we have to do to go to Heaven. Believe with faith plus nothing, that's all. It's that simple. Believe with faith plus nothing. Amen Amen Amen

    My friends, Yes Apostle Paul was faithful and believed God, but Jesus had chosen Paul for the Gentiles (Acts 9:15) and the other Apostles had to follow Jesus comments, do not go in the way of the Gentiles (Matt 10:5-7). Paul is our Apostle for our time. So Jesus had to give him new Revelations (Romans 16:25) . We are to follow Paul and read his epistles so we can understand the Bible 2 Tim 2:15
  • Lu2677
    Paul calls the Gospel of Christ "his gospel" because Paul walked by faith, he did everything in faith, he lived in the Spirit, he abides in God's Word.
