The Bad Fruit of the False Apostle Paul

Why does the left seem to think they can get their way by saying the seemingly magic statement, “I’m offended!”?

This ridiculous teaching comes directly from the false Apostle Paul.

Romans 14:15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died. …
Romans 14:21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

Paul is arguing whether or not it’s ok to eat food sacrificed to idols. He concludes that does not matter, not nearly so much as whether or not you are offending another.

We can do whatever we want on the issue, we have total freedom, as long as we are not offending our brothers.

So all the way down to this very day, Christians, who have elevated Paul’s doctrine above that of Christ, will flee and retreat if evil people say, “I’m offended”.

Paul’s doctrine thus gives power to evil to say these magic words, and Christians who follow Paul will retreat.

The horrible fruit of Paul’s teaching is the result that we see in the decline of America. Good people simply give greater and greater ground to the evil, who take advantage of God’s people who are misled into thinking we are not to offend evil and foolish hypocrites who will be offended at everything we stand for.

This completely violates the true Biblical standards, as follows:

Proverbs 25:26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted well are the righteous who give way to the wicked.

  1. I was always puzzled by these scriptures as if the priorities were all wrong. Why would we care about offending others so much, we can all get over it, cant we? It does seem like its given a political edge to manipulate using this principle. I agree with you, Jesus Christ was not one to go around people pleasing to keep the peace, He spoke the Truth and let the chips fall where they may, even unto his own death. So, I would say you have an extremely valid point here.

  2. You are taking paul way out of context here. What Paul is saying is that the goal matters more than the situation.

    For example I have no problem with having a beer with a friend but I would not do it if that friend was a recovering alcoholic we can’t do anything to temp a brother or sister to stumble as Jesus agrees with Paul in the verses below

    Matthew 18-6-7
    6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!

    Christians don’t hold Paul’s teaching over Jesus’ teaching we see how Paul’s teaching point back to Jesus

  3. How so?

    It’s not Paul’s fault if people misunderstand him just like it’s not Jesus’ fault either

    What you say about Paul also would apply to Jesus

    1. It’s what Jesus says about Paul that counts. So you are saying what Jesus says about Paul, also applies to Jesus? I smell a block coming because the lack of reason here is utterly shocking, and words mean nothing to you.

  4. I’m not sure what Jesus says about Paul though

    Jesus mentions other people by name in revelation and there is no way Jesus would miss naming Paul by name if Paul was a false prophet. Think of all the impact Paul has had on the church and Jesus knew of all the impact Paul would of had on the church

    I don’t see how you can’t see that logic I know how intelligent you are
