Atheists’ Myths: Part 3
Richard Deem
For the time will come when men will not
put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to
suit their own desires, they will gather
around them a great number of teachers
to say what their itching ears want to
hear. They will turn their ears away from
the truth and turn aside to myths. (2
Timothy 4:3-4)
Atheist Myth #3:
Christianity Was
Invented by Paul, Not
Founded by Jesus of
Nazareth
Paul Invented Christianity?
Atheists claim that Paul invented the
majority of Christian doctrines
 Jesus did not teach the majority of
doctrines taught by Paul
 Paul did not know anything about the
Jesus of the gospels, but just knew the
“Cosmic Christ”

Paul Meets Jesus
"But it happened that as I was on my
way, approaching Damascus about
noontime, a very bright light suddenly
flashed from heaven all around me, and I
fell to the ground and heard a voice
saying to me, 'Saul, Saul, why are you
persecuting Me?' And I answered, 'Who
are You, Lord?' And He said to me, 'I am
Jesus the Nazarene, whom you are
persecuting.' "(Acts 22:6-8)
