TEACHING OF SAINT PAUL AND ITS IMPACTS ON CHRISTIANITY
After having been ascended of Prophet Jesus Christ, a Jew namely Paul appeared on the scenario of Christianity and claimed to be an apostle of Jesus. His claim was rejected by true companions of Prophet Jesus but one of them namely Barnabas had testified Paul so he was also seen as a disciple of Prophet Jesus Christ. Having entered into Jesus’ followers, Paul begun to preach their thoughts affirming them as Jesus’ teachings. Paul presented a new salvation theory through Jesus’ crucifixion which was differed from traditional Judaism. Additionally, he abolished all commandments of Torah and declared keeping faith on Jesus’ atonement sufficient for salvation. Furthermore, he announced that Jesus is begotten son of God instead of prophet or man. His views about Jesus, Torah and other Jewish rituals had been considered blasphemy against Jewish religion so the companion of Jesus strictly opposed him but Paul’s influence on Christian society continuously spread. Gathering great number of people, he isolated his cult from Jewish-Christianity and founded a new version of Christianity which was totally against Jesus teachings. In this article, it has been analyzed that how to spread Pauline thoughts in Christian societies and what did they influenced upon this religion.
