I don't find anywhere that Paul paid expenses for a full-blown ritual for 4 men, complete with head-shaving, animal sacrifices, and participated himself; nevertheless, the concept that Paul adhered to, in order to bring others to the Savior, is as follows:<quoted text>
Proof of Pauls Lies
Why was the Jerusalem church still practicing the very things Paul claims Jesus sacrifice did away with? Because the Jerusalem church was still practicing Torah including the works, Paul was teaching contrary to this, and they found out.
Then to prove himself this, he was asked to participate in a cleansing ritual. Acts 21:23-24:
So do this, what we say to you: We have four men who have taken a vow.Take them and be cleansed with them, and pay their expenses so that they shave their heads. And all shall know that what they have been informed about you is not so, but that you yourself also walk orderly, keeping the Torah".
This was a shrewd act on the part of James. This way, if Paul was teaching contrary to the works of the Torah, he would be exposed as a hypocrite. Paul complied, and completed the ritual. Acts 21:26:
"Then Paul took the men on the next day, and having been cleansed with them, went into the Set-apart Place to announce the completion of the days of separation until the offering should be presented for each one of them".
Most Christians can't see the contradiction here because they are ignorant of Torah Law. Do you see a problem here? Paul taught that Jesus' sacrifice eliminated the need for animal sacrifice for sin and other works of the Torah (Hebrews 10), yet here he is participating in a ritual that required an animal sacrifice for a sin offering.
This is one more example of Pauls lies and hypocrisy.
1 Corinthians 9:20
And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;
