Jesus said, "If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." Paul said, "By unmerited favor are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God." 1.) Being an exact reflection of God and always speaking what The Father instructed Him to say, Jesus spoke the very Words of God without any possibility of error or discrepancy. Paul was the Chief of Sinners who remained ever in process of attaining the goal of Godliness and maturity. 2.) Jesus had all power in Heaven and on Earth given to Him, and embodied Godliness in human form. Paul was running a race and achieving things. 3.) Jesus constantly commanded repentance, and cessation of sin. Paul rarely mentioned sin, and liked the long process of drama laden struggles. 4.) Jesus spoke of merit related forgiveness dependant upon willful obedience to His Commands. Paul spoke of unmerited righteousness before God as a gift. 5.) Jesus spoke of YHWH to Jews, who knew only The Law, as "Father." Paul spoke of YHWH to Christians, who were filled with The Holy Spirit, as "God." 6.) Jesus did not speak the "Grace" word. Paul did all he could to speak about Grace. 7.) Jesus marvelously expounded upon the Godliness of The Law as it had been intended to be in effect. Paul was most put off by The Law as a victim of its illused history, and wanted nothing to do with it. 8.) Jesus spoke The Gospel in terms of obedience to His axiomatic commands. Paul spoke The Gospel in terms of his personal issues and preferred syllogisms. 9.) Jesus came from God the Father. Paul came from Phariseeism. Should Scripture as it regards God's forgiveness of sins be rightly divided, or should it be merely snipped into workable pieces and squashed together as best as might be accomplished? Why are Jesus' concise Words so difficult to preach, while Paul's writings are so easy to preach? Please respond here to the specific content of this thread, rather than overreacting to "how it seems." Thanks.
