Paul's Delusions: In 1 Corinthians 7:40, he claimed that he "thinks" that he has the Holy Spirit in him!

The sections of this article are:

1-  Paul's claim in 1 Corinthians 7:40.
2-  The serious issue.
3-  Conclusion.

 

 

 

1-  Paul's claim in 1 Corinthians 7:40:

During my debate with Dr. James White, I raised many points that left him dead silent and spinning around himself (See especially minutes 15:00 and 19:20 in the video).  He even went as far as calling me a liar (again, see the minute-positions that I gave).  One of those points that I silenced him on was quoting 1 Corinthians 7:40, where Paul stated that he "thinks" he has the Spirit of GOD Almighty in him.  My point was this:

1-  For Paul to say that he "thinks" he has the Holy Spirit, he obviously wasn't even sure 100% that he had It.

2-  I gave the example by pointing my finger in the direction of where my wife was sitting and said: "For instance, I don't say I THINK I am seeing my wife.  No!  I see my wife!  She's sitting over there.  You have to speak with authority and confidence, especially when you declare yourself to be a Prophet who was sent from GOD Almighty." 

If I were to say that I think I see my wife, and she's only some 10-20 feet away, then this would tell you that my eye sight is poor and I would need eyeglasses.  Same thing with Paul.  If he wasn't even sure whether or not GOD Almighty's Spirit was in him, then we have a problem.

This was one of the points that I silenced James White on during my debate with him.  His sorry-reply was that I brought everything "except for the kitchen's sink."  Reading between the lines:  Meaning that I (James white) have no response to this point!

It is also worth mentioning that James White, who happily posted all of his debates with incompetent clowns like Nadir Ahmed, has only posted his 20-minute "rebuttal" to me, which actually when you listen through it, you'll see that he was cornered and silenced on many many points, and that he was only whining.

Furthermore, and as I mentioned above, James White called me a liar for quoting Paul saying that he "thinks" he has the Holy Spirit.  Well, I'll let the English translations speak on this.  Let us look at what Paul said:

1 Corinthians 7:40 (New International Version)
40 In my judgment, she is happier if she stays as she is—and I think that I too have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (New American Standard Bible)
40 But in my opinion she is happier if she remains as she is; and I think that I also have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (Amplified Bible)
40 But in my opinion [a widow] is happier (more blessed and to be envied) if she does not remarry. And also I think I have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (New Living Translation)
40 But in my opinion it would be better for her to stay single, and I think I am giving you counsel from God’s Spirit when I say this.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (King James Version)
40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (English Standard Version)
40 Yet in my judgment she is happier if she remains as she is. And I think that I too have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (New King James Version)
40 But she is happier if she remains as she is, according to my judgment—and I think I also have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (21st Century King James Version)
40 But she is happier if she so remain, in my judgment; and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (American Standard Version)
40 But she is happier if she abide as she is, after my judgment: and I think that I also have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (Young's Literal Translation)
40 and she is happier if she may so remain -- according to my judgment; and I think I also have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (Darby Translation)
40 But she is happier if she so remain, according to my judgment; but I think that *I* also have God's Spirit.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
40 But she is happier if she remains as she is, in my opinion. And I think that I also have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (New International Reader's Version)
40 In my opinion, she is happier if she stays single. And I also think that I am led by the Spirit of God in saying that.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (New International Version - UK)
40 In my judgment, she is happier if she stays as she is— and I think that I too have the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 7:40 (Today's New International Version)
40 In my judgment, she is happier if she stays as she is—and I think that I too have the Spirit of God.

As virtually more than 90% of all English translations quoted Paul saying "I think", then obviously Dr. James White was only playing games and trying to desperately grapple his way out of the corner.  I am confident that even his own Bible says "I think", which would really make it quite ironic.  I will investigate this further, insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing).

I also want to say that when I personally get my hands on the debate files, I will post them, insha'Allah.

 

 

2-  The serious issue:

Now moving on to the more serious issues of Paul, I believe it is a very serious thing.  Paul showed absolutely no confidence and no authority in his claims about receiving Divine Revelations.  When he said "I think I have the Spirit of GOD in me," that statement virtually blew away all of his credibility as a true Prophet, because what kind of a delusional and confused person was he?  And what "spirit" was really inspiring him?  Or was he just having plain delusions? 

Historically, we've heard of many many false Prophets that came and went.  Our most recent one was David Koresh of Waco, Texas - USA, where he and his followers were burnt alive by the FBI, which in return caused for the Oklahoma City bombing by, Timothy McVeigh and his other partner who was never captured, and whom the US government calls "John Doe", to happen for vengeance against the US government.  He also had delusions of him being inspired by GOD Almighty.  So why should Paul be any different? 

Furthermore, since the Bible's own theologians admit that its books and gospels had all been:

  1. Written by mysterious men.
  2. Written by an unknown number of men.
  3. Written in unknown places.
  4. Written in unknown dates.

then based on what objective grounds should we even consider Paul's current books to be:

  1. All 100% his work.
  2. Unaltered by men.
  3. All True Divine Revelations from GOD Almighty.

I don't see that being a valid case at all.  Paul clearly demonstrated his uncertainty and doubts about whether he even had the Spirit of GOD Almighty in him.

 

 

3-  Conclusion:

The Bible again and again is proven to be corrupt and false.  Paul was also proven again and again to be a false prophet.  I personally think that since liquor back then was quite harmful to the body, because it was heavily concentrated and full of bacteria and microbes, that it might've effected his head and caused him to start hearing voices and fool and mislead many with him.

Islam is the Divine Truth from Allah Almighty.  I strongly recommend you visit the following links:

  1. The Overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran.
     
  2. Isaiah 53 further prove that Jesus never got crucified, which further confirms Islam.
     
  3. What is Islam?
     
  4. What is the status of Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims in Islam?

May Allah Almighty Lead you and your families to Islam.  Ameen.

 

 

 

 

Contradictions and History of Corruption in the Bible.

Muhammad was prophesized in the Bible.

Corruption in the Old Testament.

Answering Trinity.

What parts of the Bible do Muslims believe are closes to the Truth?

The New Testament confirms the Apocalypse (Revelation in Greek) of Peter which claims that Jesus never died on the cross!

Crucifixion of Jesus is a lie according to several of the Disciples' early writings.

History of Man's corruption of the Bible.

The New Testament was not even written by its original authors.

The "God" title in Isaiah 9:6 was given to others before and after Jesus.

The early Christians rejected Trinity and never believed in it.

Contradictions in the resurrection story in the Bible.

Was Jesus crucified on a tree (according to Peter), cross (according to others), or never got crucified (according to Islam)?

We only believe in Jesus' personal quotes as closest to the truth.

Jesus according to Islam never got killed on the cross.  Allah Almighty saved him.

The blessed Jesus in Islam.

Does Psalm 16:8-11 refer to Jesus' resurrection as the book of Acts suggest?

Jesus was never crucified according to the Gospel of Barnabas.

Isaiah 42-54 seem to predict Islam and the removal of GOD Almighty's Covenant from the people of Israel.

Deconstructing Isaiah 53 & the crucifixion/resurrection of Jesus - Exposing Paul's inventions.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.  My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.  I also showed in Isaiah 52:13 "...he will be raised and lifted up....", which clearly and perfectly agrees with Islam about Jesus never died on the cross.  "Raised and lifted" suggests that Jesus will be picked up right from the cross, or saved right from the cross by Allah Almighty.  It suggests that Jesus will not die, nor get crucified, but rather be raised and lifted by GOD Almighty to Heavens.

None of Jesus' disciples witnessed the crucifixion. They "all fled" and "deserted" Jesus. This further confirms Islam's claims.
