Paul is a very clever man, indeed. He introduced Roman paganism to Christianity. Big sin and God-man or trinity were his theories. True or not his theories were good enough to attract more believers from Roman Empire so that Christianity became state religion of Romans. It didn't crumble for several centuries.

It is well known that Paul never saw Jesus. Early believers of Jesus were Jewish as Jesus was. At the beginning Paul, who were a Pagan, was not accepted as Jewish. This was a small obstacle for a genius man. He convinced others saying that he had a vision of Jesus.

I admire his big sin theory. A messenger, Jesus, was killed by Roman soldiers brutally. This was a big crime. Who were guilty? Roman soldiers or others who just watched the execution. Paul found very good answer. Jesus sacrified himself. Everbody relieved with this answer. This solution perfectly worked for Romans, still it does. I can imagine how does the mind of a Christian work? What Jesus did for you? He died for you. Sorry God died for you. Is God dead? Of course not, thanks to Trinity. They are all alive.
