“Did Paul champion the Cause of Christ or corrupt it?”

I totally agree with one on the following points:

  1. We only have his (Paul’s) word for it that he ever saw an angel of light, meaning Paul’s “word” is nothing but a fake one. Right, please?
  2. But nobody calls him (Paul) apostle but himself, meaning Paul is a self-designated Apostle, Jesus did no appoint him as such. Right, please?
  3. He (Paul) fits every definition of a man coming in his own name, and fulfills that prophecy, too. I believe Paul doctored the anonymous narrations/gospels so as some prophecies fit on him as fulfilled. I believe that Paul was the wolf, which Jesus prophesied, according to Matthew 7:15 ,15 Beware of false prophets. They come to youin sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. Right, please?
  4. Paul is the reason for the division in Christianity.
  5. In Matthew 28, Jesus told His 11 to teach the nations what Jesus had taught. And Jesus had taught that his mission was only for the the reformation of Judaism people so that they believe and act on the Law of Moses and not on the additions/reduction made by the Jewish clergy after Moses.
  6. Paul comes along, creates an entirely new guy wearing the name of Jesus, and teaches against what Jesus had taught. It is for this that the “Great Commission”* is much disputed by modern scholars:

    *Matthew 28:19 A Text-Critical Investigation, 2006.

This commission towards the Gentiles seems to be clearly manufactured by Paul and has nothing to do with Jesus.

Did I understand the contents of one’s post correctly, please?

Paul was not an eyewitness of the Jesus’ accounts, and Luke* was also not an eyewitness.
*”Some scholars[103][104] uphold the traditional claim that Luke the Evangelist, an associate of St. Paul who was probably not an eyewitness to Jesus’ ministry, wrote the Gospel of Luke and Acts of the Apostles. Others point out that Acts contradicts Paul’s own letters and denies him the important title of apostle, suggesting that the author was not a companion of Paul’s.[105]
As is the case with all the Gospels, it is unknown exactly when the Gospel of Luke was written. Scholars have proposed a range of dates from as early as 60 AD to well into the second century, but the majority of recent critical scholars favour late 1st-century dates after 70 AD”.[106][107][108][109]

Is witchcraft a faith that deserves respect?

What I get from the discussion is that
the superstitious , mythical and violent part of all religions , or non-religions worldviews should be discouraged and not-supported.

I believe that the resurrection of Jesus or resurrection of Christ is
the Christian religious belief that, after being put to on the Cross, Jesus rose again from the dead as the Nicene Creed expresses it, “On the third day he rose again” is wrong. There are very strong clues against it even in the Gospels. Jesus could not and did not die on the Cross for obvious reasons.He was put on the Cross though, but delivered from it in near-dead position yet he survived against all odds.
“Jesus’ rising from the dead” is a myth created by Paul and the Church.

Jesus here wants to assure his disciples with this gesture that he was the same human being as he was before he was put on the Cross. Those who were in doubt that he had died, in between, they could verify by seeing somewhat fresh injuries/wounds on his hands and feet due to Crucifixion. G-d saved his life against all odds and heard his prayers in the garden of Gethsemane. Jesus neither died on the Cross, nor in the tomb where he was put for treatment by his friends. They could see him and verify that. It was just like Jonah was before going in the belly of fish, in the belly of the fish, and out of the belly of the fish. Neither Jonah died for even a single moment when the event of going on, nor Jesus. As Jonah met his his people after the event so did Jesus.
Right, please?
