    Romans 10:9 could be wrested to make it seem that faith is the sole requirement, but for Romans 10:10, which shows that confession is required, and in the process showing that faith is not the sole...

    I'm not satisfied that "they were not of us" indicates that "they never had been of us." I think that "once were of us" is a more expected interpretation arising from "had remained" μεμενηκεισαν...

    There might be a parallel with Galatians 2:12 here. "Before certain men from James came, Peter ate with the gentiles." It seems likely that the apostles had "schools" within the church, though not...

    1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

    It won't go where you want it to. "Have no sin ..." doesn't mean "do not (continue to) sin" {even...

    I think his primary aim is directed at identification of true and false teachers, rather than a general overview of believers. Even so,

    It seems, from the content of pp 107-108, that Fredriksen's opinion is; Paul's gospel had Jesus returning, sometime in the near future, to take up the role of messiah as it had been envisaged by the...

    ah ... his past misdeeds.

    but Paul's writing does exhibit tension, notably in Philippians 3: 12-15 ... Paul is not perfected (12)...

    No - Paul's assent to the existence of other gods, deeming them unworthy of notice, and adhering to only one particular god would make him henotheistic, not polytheistic. Nor does henotheism of and...
