A great article on the Apostle Paul

Posted by joelbyer on July 28, 2011

The Paul We Think We Know | Christianity Today

This article identifies 3 great myths that have been widely held about the Apostle Paul…
1) He was anti-Jewish
2) He was merely about a personal relationship with Jesus to the neglect of living and working within a Christian community.
3) He had a dynamic, alpha-male type leadership personality

For the record, I largely agree with this article.
I think that American individualism, a distorted emphasis on legalism, and American CEO-type leadership styles have wrongly colored our view of the great Apostle Paul.
I would love to get your feedback on Facebook. Read this article and tell me what you think.
But be nice! 🙂
