Where Paul to return today, I think that Paul would be seen as a fanatic, social outcast, and theological deviant even among Christians…a radical in every social circle.

Why?

Php 3:7 But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Php 3:8 Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ

 Lk 14:33 So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.
