Why was Paul described as short, bald, and bow legged?

> In this he is described as 'small in size, bald-headed, bandy-legged, well built, with eyebrows meeting; rather long nosed.

Wouldn't this "turn off" the pagan Greeks and Romans that followed physiognomy where being anointed by God meant you were handsome and tall giga chad or something?

      I thought pagan societies followed the prosperity doctrine where being ugly was seen as you being evil or wicked?

        Probably because he was short, bald, and bow legged.

        >I thought pagan societies followed the prosperity doctrine where being ugly was seen as you being evil or wicked?
        There were a fuckton of ugly Greeks and Romans who were very successful/popular

      >Physiognomy has its roots in antiquity. As early as 500 B.C., Pythagoras was accepting or rejecting students based on how gifted they looked. Aristotle wrote that large-headed people were mean, those with small faces were steadfast, broad faces reflected stupidity, and round faces signaled courage.

        An early version of "the good face" syndrome that played a significant role in the professional scouting of amateur baseball players, until statistics blew that theory up (i.e., "moneyball").

    Jesus: "If you love me, keep my commandments"
    Jesus: "Forsake everything and follow me"
    Jesus: "If you deny me before men, I will deny you before the father"
    Jesus: "If you dont forgive others, neither will you be forgiven"

    Paul and modern christianity:

    >"Oy vey! You don't have to keep the commandments! You stopped masturbating and sleeping with peoples wife, you turn away from sinning? Oy vey, works based salvation, you are not trusting Jesus Christ and his finished work on the cross! Christians can live like the devil and do nothing Jesus told us to do and we will be beamed up to heaven during the rapture, just eat chips and be a hypocrite, vile, sexually devient believer and you will be saved!"

      I'm a chadder-day Saint who despises paul-cucks but even I know that's a criminal shit take. If anything Paul lists the most explicit teachings on day to day morality of anyone. It's only retarded evangelicals that took his teachings on grace and dilated the Ephesians loop hole to such a massive gapeing goatsey.

            Jesus kept the law perfectly, and had imputed His perfect righteousness to our account. If keeping the law, the commandments of God would save you, then Jesus died in vain. Galatians 2:21. Romans 4:5-8. First John 5:13. These things have I written unto you that BELIEVE on the name of the Son of God, that ye may KNOW YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.

            First John 2:2 For He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but for the sins of the whole world. John 3:18. Believers are no longer condemned, but unbelievers are condemned already, because they have not believed on the name of the Son of God

            John 3:16 For God so loved the world, (You and I) that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, that WHOSOEVER, (You and I) believeth in Him, should not perish, but HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. Jesus said it, we believe it, and that settles it.

      Paul knew Jesus the best and the Pauline account is still the most accurate one
