Oh man, what Paul did to the religion of Jesus.

According to "The Jesus Mysteries",

... scholars believe his later letters, known as "the Pastorals," are forgeries, which contradict his earlier letters.Like the letters attributed to the other disciples, they were written in the second century CE to combat internal divisions in the Church. But some of the earlier letters, while suffering from editing, additions, and the usual " cut and paste" treatment, are widely believed to have been written by Paul.

The forged letters were written to counter Gnosticism, attacking "many deceivers" who "do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh"

Paul had gained too much authority that they could get rid of him.

Not only does life not need special intervention by a Creator God, it is a natural, emergent expression of the routine creativity of the universe.
