Getting Scripture Right by the Words of Jesus Christ

in response to reader comment: The parakletos and Paul?

In this, finally we come to the central disparate idea of this attempt (by the misnomer kerusso alethes) to discredit not only Paul, but Jesus Christ Himself. Paul DID have it right by telling us that Jesus Christ WAS sent to die as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind. By saying it is not so, any who hold to this idea that Jesus Christ is not our propitiation for our sins violates scripture in SO MANY ways, it is incalculable. (2John1:9) Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

Here is the mission of salvation by His sacrifice described by Jesus Christ Himself (Matthew 20:8) Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

And lest any who reads this not understand how the 'Comforter' ministers to each true believer, here is what Jesus Christ says: (John 14:26) "But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." Therefore each believer is accessed by the Holy Spirit to give credence to the truth, including the truth expressed by Paul's epistles. For anyone to believe that any person after the imparting of the Holy Spirit has any power to change the WORD of the LORD such as is suggested by 'kerusso alethes' needs to ask the LORD Jesus Christ into their hearts and give that discernment of the Holy Spirit necessary to 'declare' the real 'truth' about the Hebrew Holy Scriptures.
