Actually Two Paths Is A Concession

If you read Matthew 5:17-19 carefully, it says that you have to keep all the laws of moses no matter what else you do in order to get into heaven. The laws of moses are a necesary condition, but perhaps not sufficient.

So there are really not two paths. There is but one highly qualified path. Too bad, no Christians qualify.

Paul realized that when he invented the ultimate sacrifice story 'that christ made keeping the laws of moses unnecessary for Christians'. But it directly contradicts what Christ himself said.

Who do you want to believe, Christ or Saul/Paul.

Remember Saul was a great anti-Christian turned Christian. I think he undermined the teaching of Christ. For example, Paul relegated women to almost non-human status when he said that "god is to man as man is to woman"; whereas Jesus made woman a central part of his ministry, and Mother Mary seems to have taken on the role of a near-Christ, a mother God in modern Catholicism.

So Christians are basically followers of Paul and his teachings, not the original teachings of Jesus.
