Paul is the cornerstone of Christianity, as well as the spokesmen. He helped get Christianity on it's feet. If it weren't for Paul, their might not even be a Christianity to debate. This guy wrote 13 letters that comprise the NT. Alot of the book of Acts focus on his missionary journeys. Paul is considered by many the most important interpreter of the teachings of Jesus and the importance of his life, death, and resurrection. But many do not know that Paul was born a Roman citizen, and he and his father were pharisees. Paul claims that he had a chat with Jesus on the road to Damascus, in which the carpenter revealed the mysteries of heaven, and appoints him alpha male of the Gentiles. But like the cadaverous carpenter, Paul is quite the storyteller. He claimed 500 people saw Jesus after the resurrection. But none of the Gospels places the number more than a few besides the disciples. But Jesus walked around for some 40 days before the assension, and the book of Acts states only 120 seen him. And Paul's claim of "Where there is no law, there is no transgression." probably left God a little embarressed, not to mention made him look like a total idiot for him destroying most people in the flood and Sodom and Gemorrah. Paul is nothing but a male chovinist pig, a liar, and he even admits that there's nothing good about him:
I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.
