One of the most common arguments stems from the Book of James and the idea that it somehow disagrees with idea of salvation through faith that is expressed through the letters of Paul....   [tags: church leaders, christianity]

Transformation is the complete change in someone’s character. Transformations are not always good, but in Paul’s case, his life would change forever for the better. His story would last for thousands of years convicting others to turn from their sinful ways and ultimately to Christ....   [tags: New Testament, Christianity, Acts of the Apostles]
