Let’s meet Col. Rose Mary Sheldon, head of the history department at the Virginia Military Institute and all-around theological windbag.

Recently The Associated Press reported that Col. Rose Mary Sheldon, the head of the history department at the Virginia Military Institute, co-authored the recently released book Operation Messiah: St. Paul, Roman Intelligence and the Birth of Christianity. The book suggests that the Apostle Paul could have been a Roman spy who faked his conversion in order to infiltrate the early Christian church.

divine-sightTalk about a bum rap! Here’s a dude who was physically blinded by an angel of God solely for the Lord to get his attention, and now that was hype and a rouse so he could tap John, Peter and whosoever will’s phone line?! Lady, what tree banked on the River Jordan are you smoking?!

Let me get this right Rosey:

  1. He wrote 2/3 of the New Testament, and STILL hasn’t made it on Oprah’s book of the month club
  2. He has a testimony that involves murdering Christians… for kicks!
  3. His conversion to Christianity was so renowned that his face was posted inside Roman post offices everywhere
  4. He is often considered one of the first martyrs for Jesus. That means he did much more than roll out of bed on Sundays and make it to church 15 minutes late
  5. He is considered the faith’s first pastor, only without the bling, megachurch and Bentley
  6. His ministry was the birth of man’s search for justification, redemption and reconciliation

All of that, and so much more, flushed down the toilet to sell Amway products and play a quick game of espionage. Yeah, that’s a great foundation. Go with that and enjoy all those book sales.
