1- Paul's contradictions:
Let us look at the following verses about baptism:
"I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit. (From the NIV Bible, Mark 1:8)"
"Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. (From the NIV Bible, Mark 16:16)"
The practice of baptism today is done by literally dipping a person into a small pool of water. The point from it is not to physically clean him from body sweat and odor, but rather to symbolically show that he had been spiritually purified or sanctified, and to sort of mark a date and time of him being "born again".
Let us see how Paul nullified and contradicted the point of baptism:
1 Corinthians 7:10-15:
10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the
Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband.
11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.
12 To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her.
13 And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him.
14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.
15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so. A believing man or woman is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace.
16 How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?
Paul considered disbelieving husbands who are married to believing wives as purified/sanctified and holy. Their children too are considered as such even if they turn out to be disbelievers.
Anyone here must ask the simple question: If the disbelieving husband becomes a believer and embraces the polytheist trinity paganism, then given the fact that he had already been purified through his physical marriage, would he still have to be purified through the physical baptism? As we saw above, the whole point from baptism is to give sanctification. Now, if the disbelieving husband had already been sanctified through his marriage, then what is the point from sanctifying him again?
My point here is not focusing on the baptism itself. I am not desperately trying to pick out silly points and make a big deal out of them. My point here is: What is the spiritual wisdom behind the disbelieving husbands being purified through their marriage to the believing wives?
Where is the divine perfection in this?
More Proofs of Paul's words in NO WAY being Divine:
By the way, this is not the only time where Paul's writings were exposed and clearly proven to be nothing but fraud. Examine the following from his books:
2 Timothy 4:9-13
9 Do your best to come to me quickly,
10 for Demas, because he loved this world, has deserted me and has gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia.
11 Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, because he is helpful to me in my ministry.
12 I sent Tychicus to Ephesus.
13 When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, and my scrolls, especially the parchments.
12 As soon as I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, because I have decided to winter there.
13 Do everything you can to help Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way and see that they have everything they need.
14 Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order that they may provide for daily necessities and not live unproductive lives.
He decided to winter there???
The above from his books are clear evidence, from among the many, that his writings are not Divine Revelations from GOD Almighty!
The myth and lie of Paul's words being Divine Revelations is soundly exposed!
He said: "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, (From the NIV Bible, 2 Timothy 3:16)"
How can his scriptures be all "God-breathed", when we clearly and irrefutably see nonsense in his book?
Interestingly, Paul who spoke 2 Timothy 3:16 had ridiculously contradicted himself, because he himself admitted before that he wasn't always inspired by GOD Almighty himself (1 Corinthians 7:25-35). Verses 1 Corinthians 7:25-35 are today permanently preserved in the "Bible". If GOD Almighty indeed spoke 2 Timothy 3:16 through Paul, then He wouldn't have contradicted Himself in the Verse about the entire Bible being His Words, while permanently preserving Paul's personal words and suggestions in the "Bible". This should be one solid proof that Paul was not truthful.
2- They are holy?!
We have already seen Paul's terrible choice in considering disbelievers as purified. He further makes a worse mistake by calling them "holy". Now, I am very certain that Paul knew what the word "holy" meant. The question here is: How can any disbeliever be considered as a "holy" person to any person's religious denomination?
Paul really admired the "holy" people and elated their status very high. He, for instance, considered religious leaders as perfect, sinless and infallible:
"The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man's judgment. (From the NIV Bible, 1 Corinthians 2:15)"
How can Paul consider a spiritual leader as a "holy" person, and yet at the same time, consider a disbeliever as "holy" too?!
Also, how can a person in general be considered as purified and holy, and yet be condemned to Hell?
What is the dumb point from calling him "holy" and "pure" if he will still be among the evil and bad people who will (according to the polytheist trinity pagan belief) burn in Hell for Eternity?
3- Paul contradicted GOD Almighty in the Old Testament!
Let us look at GOD Almighty's concern in the Old Testament about marrying disbelievers:
"When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations-the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and stronger than you - and when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy. Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, for they will turn your sons away from following me to serve other gods, and the LORD's anger will burn against you and will quickly destroy you. This is what you are to do to them: Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones, cut down their Asherah poles and burn their idols in the fire. For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. (From the NIV Bible, Deuteronomy 7:1-6)"
The Old Testament is crystal clear about the danger in marrying disbelievers, especially in the old days where women used to automatically follow their husbands' religions in the male-dominated societies. GOD Almighty in the Old Testament NEVER called the disbelievers as "holy" and "pure". Only Paul fell through his lies and uttered such stupidity!
Not only that, but GOD Almighty also Warned the People of Israel that if they ever marry pagans, then they will be destroyed!
The Old Testament clearly confirms my points above about Paul's words in NO WAY being Divine, because the GOD Almighty of the Bible didn't consider the disbelievers as "holy" and "pure."
The question that now begs itself is:
What's next now for Mr. Paul? Calling pagans as Saints, Bishops, Deacons and Church Fathers?
Paul's words in the verses above have been proven to be illogical and full of utter nonsense and personal self-contradicting opinions. I personally don't care what Paul says or believes, but when YOU tell me that his words are all GOD Almighty's Holy Revelations and Inspirations, then the matter becomes different.
Through simple examination of Paul's words, it is clear that they don't have any Divine Wisdom in them what so ever. They also proved to be self-contradicting and full of stupidity!
Once again, the lie and myth about Paul's words being Divine Revelations from GOD Almighty had been soundly debunked in this article! Embrace Islam and you will be saved. All Praise due to Allah Almighty.
5- My Rebuttals:
My rebuttal to Sam Shamoun's "Demonstrating how Paul's writings nullify Osama's desperate attempts to finding Bible Contradictions" article.
My response to Sam Shamoun's rebuttal to my article "Paul, Peter and John are in clear contradiction with each others regarding the disbelieving husbands to believing wives!".
PAUL, the self-appointed Prophet, was proven to be a deceiver who contradicted the teachings of Jesus and mocked the Law of Moses.

Most of the Bible's books and gospels were written by mysterious people!
Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.
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.
