    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

    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.

    The Corinthians church had a lot of problems, there was alot of bad things going on, that's why they were called babes in Christ. The Corinthians were not eating the meat of the Word because of there sins. Apostle Paul had a hard time, but he had alot of love for that church. The books of Corinthians will teach Salvation of today, the gospel, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Paul calls it his gospel. Read it
