We have to be correct in our statements that Jesus sent Paul. The proper way to state it is that Paul stated Jesus sent him in a dream he had about Jesus. Paul was a diehard enemy of Jesus before his conversion to Christianity. I find it ironic that Christians take the intrepretation of Christianity from someone who use to be his enemy, than from most of his disciples who live with him and followed him. I'm sure the real reasons most of the disciples parted with Paul was the trinity belief, which they could not agree with. Anything else is minor, which would have allowed them to follow Paul.
