How Satan Manipulated Paul to Sin Then God Redeemed Him into a Life of Faith

As Ash Wednesday approaches, in his new book, Saul of Tarsus: The First Terrorist, author Jack Minter provides rare insight into the man who was once the greatest intentional murderer of Christians—“the first terrorist”—but was ultimately so touched by God that he became one of the greatest Christians of all time and a martyr for his faith in Jesus Christ. Paul was the ultimate example of redemption.

As Christians across the globe pause to reflect on their relationship with God in observance of Ash Wednesday, Saul’s incredible transformation is the perfect example of how we can also be powerfully transformed by God’s love. Although we may never fully comprehend Christ’s love for us, Saul of Tarsus is the true testament of how radically our lives are changed when faith and trust are put in Jesus Christ.

According to Minter, when Saul finally became transformed to the belief that Jesus Christ was the Son of God, Paul then understood his own pride and hostility.

“Paul began to see that he spent his life living a mistake,” says Minter. “Paul knew that it was he who was wrong in his knowledge. He understood in ultimate repentance that he had been the one who had persecuted the Holy One, God’s Son, the Messiah, now Paul’s Savior.”

Ash Wednesday offers a great opportunity to remember Paul’s ultimate cautionary story for every man that demonstrates repentance can be redeemed through Jesus Christ.

“If redemption can come through Jesus Christ to the world’s first and foremost terrorist, it can come to any man who wishes to rise from the ashes of sin,” adds Minter.
