Message Subject the apostle who was a roman spy?
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Probably Paul, the hebrew Roman.

At first he mercilessly persecuted Christians.

Suddenly he allegedly had an apparition, became blind and was healed by a Christian.

And then he immediately changed his name.

That's exactly how undercover agents proceed who want to infiltrate a subversive movement.

He then changed the original teachings of Jesus, making them compatible to the Roman Empire.

Mission accomplished.

Paul declared himself a citizen of Rome.

when he got into trouble with the authority he said "I appeal to Caesar".

5 stars.

More evidence:

"Two years in Rome

"He finally arrived in Rome around 60, where he spent another two years under house arrest.[92] The narrative of Acts ends with Paul preaching in Rome for two years from his rented home while awaiting trial.[Acts 28:30–31]"

House arrest in a rented home, and free speech for two more years! A true follower of Jesus would not have been treated so generously. But Paul has received the typical privileges that a friend of the power still receives today who has been imprisoned only for the sake of form. Nothing has changed in 2000 years. :)

The fact that Nero had him executed after the great fire of Rome does not make him a martyr but a victim of the power structure he was serving. Shit happens.
