How much of the New Testament did Paul write?
Thirteen letters, or epistles, of the New Testament begin with a formula like "Paul, servant of God, to [recipient's name]." However, some liberal scholars believe that as many as half of these letters might not have been written by Paul. Many, like 2 Thessalonians, may have been from the "School of Paul"--either dictated by Paul or written by people who came after him and shared his theology.
Which letters are we sure he wrote?
Of the 13 epistles originally attributed to him, liberal scholars believe that at least seven were definitely written by Paul: 1 Thessalonians, Galatians, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Philippians, Philemon, and Romans. Few liberal scholars believe Paul wrote 1 & 2 Timothy, Ephesians, and Titus. There is no consensus on who wrote Colossians and 2 Thessalonians.

Of the entire Bible, only five of Paul's letters are considered authentic by most scholars. The Revelation is agreed to be writen by an unkown person named John from the island Patmos.
All other texts in the Bible (Jewish anbd Christian) are by anonymous authors.
A Books Title is NOT indicative of the author, esp. when the Titles are given centuries after the books were written.
Feel free to believe that book Titled "The LIfe of Abraham Lincoln" written last week is actually written by Abe.
You people are so demented you could claim a dog turd is the 'Feces of God' and lick it every Sunday then call anyone who refuses to lick dog shit a godless sinner.
In the interest of clarity, I need to jump in.

There are 7 uncontested Letters from Paul, understood to contain later interpolations and probably missing edited passages.

Romans
1 Corinthians
2 Corinthians
Galatians
Phillipians
1 Thessalonians
Philemon

Of course, many people said many things as or about Paul after he disappeared, like Ephesians or 1 Timothy, or like this "Letter from Peter to James"

"For some from among the Gentiles have rejected my lawful preaching and have preferred a lawless and absurd doctrine of the man who is my enemy."

This is a reflection of you and the true nature of your heart and soul, not ours. It appears yours is festered.

Thanks. I was going by memory and decided to under estimate.

OK, seven letters that we agree to Paul's authorship. Not much out of 2500 years of hundreds of anonymous and dubious Abrahamic documents.

Screw you, you self righteous dimwit.

You don't know much about anything and yet claim you know everything about God.

The only god you believe in is your own ego.

The 10 commandments are completely unnecessary. The 4 things you mentioned are standards in any moral ethical society and have been for all of the history of humans. We could not exist without those standards.
Your standards are raised to a different level on two counts. First, you are supposedly answerable to your god-being and second your 10 commandments have some special tenants regarding the worship of said god-being.
My standards do not require a god-being...that's the difference. I really can't believe you don't already know that. Odd that just because someone doesn't "like" the 10 commandments they are automatically a thief or a liar or...sheeesh...get a life.
Another fail...keep trying if you wish.
i wish you would have ran for prez instead of Obama & Romney....:(

Oh, the hypocrisy. You're the narcissist, not me. And you know little of my God because it requires something you don't possess. Faith.

So anyone can be a sick, evil scumbag and your deity will love them and take them to an eternal magical place as long as they believe what some insane pagan wrote a hundred year after Jesus died.
Your deity is one sick, evil POS.
Good thing your deity isn't real.
here's the deal - compared to God, we are sick, evil scumbags, but He made a Way for us to be forgiven even still. but, if you prefer your sick evil standard of righteousness better than His Goodness, may that rest on your head for all eternity, DOG.

Beware of any religion that presupposes that humans are evil and then provides the only escape from this imaginary prison.

Fortunately, no one actually needs forgiveness from any mythical deity.
