    Default From the Letter of Paul to Alexandria:

    Therefore there is nothing better than faith, truth, chastity, fasting and charity which will wash away our sins. And which you wish not to do to your self, do not do that to others. Course yourself to the Kingdom of God, and you will receive the crown, which is in the Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Blessings on you! (Nu 6:24-26)


    Col 3:16-17
    16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
    17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

    KJV

    Just my opinion but this letter does not have the tone or language that the Apostle Paul speaks. I am by no means an expert on biblical linguistics, just happy to be a student of the bible, but this paragraph from a letter of Paul to Alexandria does not read the same as Paul's letters in the bible.
    No proof just my opinion.

    Nothing "washes away our sins" but the blood of Christ.
    Your epistle is a fake.

    Correct. There were many fake epistles and "gospels" floating around in the first few centuries, primarily created by Gnostics to promote their heresies.

    If you look closely you can see the seaport of Alexandria at the bottom of the map.
    Also in the top left hand corner are the Church's of; Thessalonica, Philippi and Corinth.
    And then in the middle are the Church's of Ephesus, Laodicia and Collassae.

    Jerusalem is to the right of Alexandria seaport, likely a fake document

    Philippians 4 8-9

    8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9 What you have learned[e] and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

    sounds a lot like Paul to me.

    Then you have found something besides the blood of Christ to wash away your sins.
    Jesus died in vain.

    I hope you can grasp the significance of such unbiblical testimony.

    faith, truth, chastity, fasting and charity

    i cant think of anything more unbiblical than those virtues. im sure those that practice such unbiblical acts will be judged very harshly.

    From the letter of Paul to the sports fans of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:
    "Yo! Congrats to the Eagles for having a pretty good season so far this year. Go Eagles! Beat Panthers! My condolences on the Phillies, but at least they beat the Mets (just messing with you, Ed), and do NOT blame the Lord for what's happening to the Sixers. Even heaven has no idea what's going on there. And, sorry, I'm just not a hockey fan, so haven't heard how the Flyers are doing, but I'll take a cheesesteak wit from Geno's and a pretzel with mustard, if you happen to be going by that way on the way to visit me. Do hurry though, since the pretzels get too hard within 12 hours. BTW, how come you have to say "wit" for a cheesesteak, since by its very nature a cheesesteak already has cheese? And, I'll give Philly a 98 -- good tune, and you can dance to it."

    It's fun making up letters from Paul. Thanks!

    Sounds like someone trying to imitate Paul; "there is nothing better than faith, truth, chastity, fasting and charity which will wash away our sins." This doesn't sound true to Paul's style and choice of words, but have it your way.

    I suspect that this is part of an E Mail Paul composed before realizing he had no way of sending it at the time so it never made it into the NT
