You believe what Paul said about faith and salvation. I do not doubt that it is not true.

But Jesus said much more. Like the following

Matthew 5
Note that he is clearly talking to only Jews and that by loving our enemies we may become sons of god just like him and that we must be perfect just like Jesus. It is scripture like this that made me convert to Judiaism after being reborn in Christainity.

Paul's message was to the Gentiles. God goes easier on the Gentiles. The requirements are less difficult as you have pointed out. Only faith matters for the Gentiles as indicated by the Samatarian woman. The Gentiles in the Gospel are saved or healed by their great faith. But the Jews have to keep the law including loving thy enemy and those that persecute you. But our reward is to become sons of God, as stated above.
