Mathematic Solution to Paul's Theological question :-)

There are 66 books of the Bible. Of the 66 some say 14 or according to another 13 were penned by the Apostle Paul. 

Assuming 14 is true, 

14 ÷ 66 = 0.21212121...

So his writings account for over 21%. That is a lot (of revelation). 

Now, let us solve a problem on the Apostle Paul's theology of salvation. 


Paul says in Colossians 3:3-4, "For you died, and your life  is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life, appears, then you will also appear with him in glory."  In 2:11-15, he also says, "In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. 13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross." Christ died and rose again over two thousand years ago. You and I live in this 21st Century. Yet, Paul says, "You were this or you were that, or you did this you did that along with Christ more than two thousand years ago." 

What is going on? 


Christ is God. 

His value (or profit) = ∞ 
Our sins (or loss) = finite
Jesus paid the price for our sins, so the value he paid for our debts (sins/loss) ≧ our debts/sins

All came from Jesus, so Jesus ≧ all, so when Jesus died and rose again, all died and rose again. 

So in Jesus all who put trust in Him can live a new life that is free of sin and death, full of life.
