God Thinking XV - By Design 7

"Remember how Paul was evangelized.  Paul was true to his religion.  He believed fervently that to destroy Christians was the honorable way to serve God.  Was he right? No.  He believed a lie.  He believed what religion was teaching at the time.  He forsook the Word in lieu of religious security, security of being with the most influential group at the time. 

How did God get Paul’s attention?  He knocked him down and blinded him for a time.  Paul had no choice but to be led by others for a time.  Paul believed a lie.  He acted upon it.  His entire experience with God had been built on a lie.  

Had he not had the Damascus road experience and heard the voice of Jesus, he would have continued on his path throughout his life."
