Atheists’ Myths: Part 3 Richard Deem
For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
Atheist Myth #3: Christianity Was Invented by Paul, Not Founded by Jesus of Nazareth
Paul Invented Christianity? • Atheists claim that Paul invented the majority of Christian doctrines • Jesus did not teach the majority of doctrines taught by Paul • Paul did not know anything about the Jesus of the gospels, but just knew the “Cosmic Christ”
Paul Meets Jesus "But it happened that as I was on my way, approaching Damascus about noontime, a very bright light suddenly flashed from heaven all around me, and I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?' And I answered, 'Who are You, Lord?' And He said to me, 'I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom you are persecuting.' "(Acts 22:6-8)
Conclusion • The core doctrines of Christianity are taught not only by Paul, but also by Jesus, the apostles, and Old Testament saints. • The atheist claim that Paul invented Christianity is a myth
