    I hope Buhari fires this man immediately he takes over.

    One of the problems of humanity is a God with low self esteem and IQ desiring a constant worship and praise from everything he lazily and carelessly spoke into existence. Today is sunday,and a God full of pride will be looking forward to getting a praise from humans who have brains and can reason. Sometimes when I hear God marketers(pastors) say God has a plan to give an expected end,I wonder if God forgot that humans have brains and can determine what’s good or bad for them since the serpent told man the truth about eating a fruit in the book of genesis. Again,I keep wondering if God has lost so much color and value that he always needs marketers like pastors and bishops to say something nice about him in exchange for money and materials.

    Mr Femi you have got it all wrong i must say. The Gospel paul preached and the one preached by Jesus and the rest of the apostles are one and the same. the disparities are in your understanding given your point of view. Jesus also preached the Gospel of Grace. it is embedded in virtually all his teachings. Again, the mystery Paul talked about was not referring to only what he Paul knows but to the salvation planned for all mankind Jews and gentiles alike before the foundation of the earth and was revealed through Jesus. i will urge you to read better and also not to be hand picking verses to drive your points. Jesus also admitted that there are many things he would have told the apostles but when the holy spirit come it will reveal all truth. the bible is too versed to be hand picked and got people decieved. I never see any contraction in what Paul taught the only contradiction is the ones in your understanding of the scripture.
