The truth is hard to accept sometimes but our own study of the Word is the only way we can understand the message of Christ. Our devotion to Him allows the Holy Spirit to reveal that which we need to know.
We cannot rely on the traditions handed down by men but only by the Word of God.
Matt 4 It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’
Please read this article by a theologian who delves into the writings of Paul and what they are truly revealing.
One quote of note: "Sometimes, Paul speaks as if some human beings will perish along with the present age, and sometimes as if all human beings will finally be saved. He never speaks of some hell for the torment of unregenerate souls."
Seek ye the Whole Truth!
