Paul the Anti-VEGAN Fake Apostle Endorsed by Demons. Go VEGAN! By Dr. Chapman Chen, HKBNews




"Saint" Paul was anti-vegan (1 Corinthians 10:25 NIV) while Jesus was vegan (Luke 21:34, Evangelion Da-Mepharreshe: Old Syriac-Aramaic Manuscript of the NT Gospels; Matthew 9:13 CSB). Paul's preaching was endorsed by the demons (Acts 16:16-18 NIV); and people, who invoked Jesus' name together with Paul's in order to drive out demons, were badly defeated (Acts 19:13-16). No wonder US President Thomas Jefferson called St. Paul the "first corrupter of the doctrines of Jesus" (Washington 1854).


1. Paul's Preaching was Endorsed by Evil Spirit


In Acts of the Apostle, an evil spirit preached the "Gospel" to people, urging people to believe in the way of salvation as taught by Paul:-


(Paul and Silas in Prison) Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her. (Acts 16:16-18 NIV)


Now, what kind of ministers were Paul and his underling Silas when their preaching was endorsed, promoted and propagated by a female demon?


In fact, this is the only occasion in the Bible on which an evil spirit preaches the Gospel. “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand?" asked Jesus (Matthew 12:25-26 NIV). Therefore, an evil spirit will never fight Satan to preach the real Gospel. The Gospel it preaches is for sure a false Gospel leading to destruction.



2. Failed Exorcism


The Jesus preached by Paul could not drive out demons. In the text above, by invoking Jesus Christ's name, Paul managed to cast out a demon. However, in Acts 19:13-16, when seven fellows tried to drive out an evil spirit by invoking Jesus' name with "whom Paul preaches" added to it, they were badly beaten up:-


Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding (Acts 19:13-16 NIV).


It follows that Jesus Christ and the Jesus preached by Paul are two different entities in the spiritual realm. The former can drive out demons while the latter is not feared by demons (cf. End Times Truther Wing Wong 2021).



3. The First Corrupter of Jesus' Teachings

As pointed out by Albert Schweitzer (1910) in The Quest for the Historical Jesus, Paul perverted the discourse of Jesus and "displace[d]" it. The perversion involves at least seven domains, namely, eating food sacrificed to idols, eating animal flesh, denigration of women, slavery, justification by faith alone, submission to the authorities, and debasement of Moses' Law. Here, we will confine our discussion to the first two domains only (For more details, see Chen [2021b]):-

3.1. Eating Food Sacrificed to Idols


In I Corinthians 8:4-13, Paul argues that eating meat offered to an idol is not immoral, because “an idol is nothing at all” (I Cor. 8:4 NIV). “Food,” he asserts, “does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do” (I Cor. 8:8 NIV). "To the pure, all things are pure" (Titus 1:15 NIV).

On the other hand, in the letter to the church of Thyatira, Jesus rebukes them for tolerating a prophetess who "seduce[s] my servants to ... eat things sacrificed unto idols" (Revelation 2:20 KJV). And The Jerusalem Council led by James the Just, Jesus' natural brother, wrote to Gentile converts the Council's "decision that they should abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals" (Acts 21:25 NIV).

3.2. Eating Animal Flesh

Eating anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience" (1 Corinthians 10:25 NIV), advises Paul. For two thousand years, this has (mis)led numerous Christians to think that it is alright to slaughter innocent animals and eat their flesh.

Paul even defames vegans as weaklings in terms of faith:- "One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables" (Romans 14:2 NIV).

In contrast, Jesus warns against meat-eating:- “Be on guard, so that your hearts do not become heavy with the eating of flesh" (Luke 21:34, Evangelion Da-Mepharreshe — Old Syriac-Aramaic Manuscript of the New Testament Gospels). And He admonishes the Pharisees, quoting Hosea 6:6, "Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice" (Matthew 9:13 CSB).


In the Gospel of the Ebionites, Jesus condemns animal sacrifice in the Temple of Jerusalem:- “I have come to abolish the sacrifices, and if you cease not from sacrificing, my wrath will not cease from you” (Panarion 30.16.5). Jesus also rejected the Passover meal :“I have no desire to eat the flesh of this Paschal Lamb with you” (The Gospel of the Ebionites 22.4).

Throughout His human life, Jesus cared about animals, like sparrows (Matthew 10;29-31 NIV), "fowls of the air" (Matt. 6:26-33 KJV), sheep (Matt. 12:11), chickens (Matt. 23:37 KJV), yoked animals in general (Matt. 11:29-30), a donkey and her colt (Matt. 21:1-3 NIV). He even rescued and healed a badly beaten mule (Linzey and Dorothy 1998: 38-39; Linzey 2010: 60-61; Chen 2021).

Whilst Jesus showed compassion for animals, Paul sneered at exploited and downtrodden oxen:- "For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?" (1 Corithians 9:9 KJV)
