Mattew 24:5
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

7. Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.

Revelations 21:7
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he 
shall be my son.

From Culture & Value, page 30:

"The spring which flows gently and limpidly in the Gospels seems to have froth 
on it in Paul's Epistles.  Or that is how it seems to me.  Perhaps it is just 
my own impurity which reads turbidness into it; for why shouldn't this impurity 
be able to pollute what is limpid?  But to me it's as though I saw human 
passion here, something like pride or anger, which is not in tune with the 
humility of the Gospels.  It's as though he is insisting here in his own 
person, and doing so moreover as a religious gesture, something which is 
foreign to the Gospel.  I want to ask- and may this be no blasphemy- : "What 
might Christ have said to Paul?"  But a fair rejoinder to that would be : What 
business is that of yours?  Attend to making yourself more honorable!  In your 
present state you are quite incapable of understanding what may be the truth 

In the Gospels- as it seems to me- everything is less pretentious, humbler, 
simpler.  There you find huts; in Paul a church.  There all men are equal and 
God himself is a man; in Paul there is already something like a hierarchy; 
honours and official positions.  -That, as it were, is what my NOSE tells me.

Let us be human.-"

He lived a wonderful life.
