Ah, there's something I've studied more than many Catholics. I had a wonderful teacher for much of it, I put on the level of Gamaliel that taught Saul of Tarsus, in a word. Of course I'm prejudice. I will quite enjoy that. Are you doing that here or on another forum or thread?
LOL @ studied *snort*

Now see if you can find anywhere in Paul's writings where he ever claimed to be taught by Gamaliel, or where he claimed his name was Saul, or where he claimed to be from Tarsus.(BTW, Paul didn't write Acts)

The ignorance and arrogance of Christianity is always entertaining.

Hillel is closer to the teachings of Jesus.

If Paul studied under Gamaliel, he sucked as a student.

For sure my friend. I know many Catholics, but they only follow what they're told to do. I concern myself with the RCC's massive and lucrative 'business' and their 'government' or 'hierarchy'.
Absolutely... Join me, should be interesting. I'll keep you posted...:)

It's history. It is written in every book on Paul and on every website whether secular or Christian. So you don't believe history either? Figures. Paul was brilliant and was a wonderful student as Saul. This is taken from a secular site although you'll find basically the same FACTS anywhere.
Paul was by birth a Roman citizen, as was his father.[Acts 22:25-29][cf. Acts 16:37] His was a devout Jewish family in the city of Tarsus—one of the largest trade centers on the Mediterranean coast.[27] It had been in existence several hundred years prior to his birth. It was renowned for its university, one in which students could receive a superior education. During the time of Alexander the Great, Tarsus was the most influential city in Asia Minor.[28] Stoicism was the dominant philosophy there. In his letters, Paul reflected heavily from his knowledge of Stoic philosophy, using Stoic terms and metaphors to assist his new Gentile converts in their understanding of the revealed word of God.[29] His wide spectrum of experiences and education gave the "Apostle to the Gentiles"[Rom. 1:5][11:13][Gal. 2:8] the tools to effectively spread the Gospel and establish the church solidly in all parts of the Roman Empire.[30]
He was born about the same time as Jesus (c. 4 B.C.) or slightly later. He was converted to faith in Jesus Christ about A.D. 33.(He died c. A.D. 62-64, most likely in Rome.)[6]
Paul referred to himself as being "of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee."[Phil. 3:5] However, the Bible reveals very little about Paul's family. Paul's sister's son is mentioned in Acts 23:16. Acts also quotes Paul indirectly referring to his father by saying he, Paul, was "a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee".[Acts 23:6] Paul refers to his mother in Romans 16:13 as among those at Rome.
The family had a history of religious piety.[2 Timothy 1:3] Apparently the family lineage had been very attached to Pharisaic traditions and observances for generations.[Philippians 3:5-6] Young Saul learned how to make the mohair with which tents were made.[Acts 18:1-3] Later as a Christian missionary, that trade became a means of support for him, one that he could practice anywhere. It also was to become an initial connection with Priscilla and Aquila with whom he would partner in tent-making and later become very important teammates as fellow missionaries.
While he was still fairly young, he was sent to Jerusalem to receive his education at the school of Gamaliel,[Acts 22:3] one of the most noted rabbis in history. The Hillel school was noted for giving their students a balanced education, likely giving Paul broad exposure to classical literature, philosophy, and ethics. Some of his family may have resided in Jerusalem since later the son of one of his sisters saved his life there.[Acts 23:16] Nothing more is known of his background until he takes an active part in the martyrdom of Stephen.[Acts 7:58-60;22:20] Paul confesses that "beyond measure" he persecuted the church of God prior to his conversion.[Gal. 1:13–14][Phil. 3:6][Acts 8:1-3]

so my wife likes to watch criminal minds (proof that they're the weaker sex, but that's another sermon;) and i occasionally suffer through it just to be with her. last night a homosexual was killing people and i thought 'finally it's not a 'christian' doing the evil in an episode'!

turns out that this homo-guy was all twisted up cuz of this abusive'christian' treatment center his twisted 'christian' dad forced him to go to when he was a kid.

even though this homo-guy killed several of both innocent gays and women, the self-righteous FBI team was the most compassionate and gracious to this serial killer than i've ever seen them be in an episode before! GO FIGURE!!!

and to think y'all antichristers claim that you're not being continuously brainwashed! too funny!!!

Galatians 1:1 “Paul, an apostle (not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead)”

Romans 1:1 “Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God

2 Timothy 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God” This is repeated over and over in his epistles (1 Cor.1:1; 2 Cor.2:1; Eph. 1:1; Col.1:1; 2 Tim1:1.) If this is not true then the Scripture is not inspired by God and cannot be trusted anywhere as accurate

.......An account of Helen's first months must come from her mother, Kate Adams Keller, and other relatives. It was reported that at six months she could say "How d'ye" and "tea, tea, tea." She also knew the meaning of the word "water," which she pronounced "wah-wah." When she was a year old, she took her first steps,.........
I hate to spoil things for you.......(ok i don't, I enjoy it).....

many babies, of average intelligence, can babble one or two sylabble words. wah wah for water being one example.

when children are talked too on a daily basis by adults, they will learn language skills quite early.

my 2nd and 3rd sons had a vocabulary of 20+ words by the time they were a year old. saying at least 7 words at 6 months old.......dada, mama, hungy (for hungry) dog dog, whoa, up, and bubby (nickname for my oldest). my 2nd son walked at 9 months. the youngest walked at 7 months.

so, to say helen was intelligent, or a genuis, is really a stretch.
