"The most important commandment is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
Mark 12:29 - 31
'The Other Paul' embodies my life-long journey through the intellectual study of history and God’s revelation to mankind, and also my hope to pass on what I learn to Christians of all kinds who likewise desire to grow in knowledge. My mission is as follows:
I - To guide believers through the intellectual trenches of the Christian religion, and by extension curious unbelievers.
II - To guide believers by means of example; not merely speaking and writing theory for people to consume, but to demonstrate good learning and how to achieve it in my conduct, particularly in audio-visual content.
III - To enable learners to do their own learning in relevant topics, such as by providing all primary and secondary sources utilized in my content.
IV - To discern a complete and coherent expression of the Christian faith so as to resolve controversies and achieve unity across the Christian traditions as much as is possible this side of the eschaton.
V - To glorify God and fully to enjoy Him forever (WLC §1).
Paul is an Australian Anglican in his 20s and is based in Sydney, NSW. He runs a ministry under the name The Other Paul, whose mission it is to guide Christians through the intellectual trenches of their faith in all areas of theological study. Paul's particular areas of interest are biblical exegesis and the first few centuries of early church history, but he also engages in just about any other topic pertaining to scripture or history for which he sees a need for good, educational content. He also frequently engages in ecumenical dialogue and debate with other Christian traditions, especially Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy. Paul is also working towards entering ministry as an Anglican clergyman, where he hopes to put his education to use by leading fellow parishioners in studying the faith and living the Christian life.
