It's a lack of understanding and study. Paul was chosen by Christ specifically. Paul didn't go out and "invent" Christianity, it was simply a way to recognize all who belived in Jesus, both Jew and Gentile alike.

Yes chosen by Christ three different times in three different ways... Just like Joseph Smith and Mohammed and many others claiming to be named by Him. Jesus named Mathias to succeed Judas.

Now... That said it's not my place to determine if Paul is false. He's still a man prone to mistakes. His ideas are worth considering, but his ideas come AFTER Jesus. If his idea has conflict with what Jesus actually said and did, I... Keep it in perspective. Paul is a sinner like you and I. What he said and preached was an interpretation.

We've been through this same topic week and weeks ago, you are still woefully incorrect about Paul. For some reason the apostle Paul has you wrapped around the axle. So Paul is "claiming" to be chosen by Christ now? There is no defined set number for how many apostles there should be. So we should simply toss out a chunk of the New Testament because of the many letters Paul wrote? Tell me now, what does Paul say that contradicts anything Christ said? There is nothing but love, reverence, and respect for Jesus from Paul, any other idea(such as yours) is wrong, and frankly I find it working towards manipulation of others who don't understand. Careful now and don't insert your interpretation.

Careful about condemning what books/letters came after Christ in the Bible. James, Jude, Peter, John, they all wrote about things after pentecost, do we throw those out as well or consider them to be their interpretations? Or are you going to say they were apostles who were directly in contact with Jesus and therefore infallible?

You aren't going to change my mind about Paul whatsoever, and fairly certain there are others who would most likely agree. Stop using google to read and research the Bible.
