Bart Ehrman on Christianity without Paul

Beliefnet continues adding features on Paul with a nice new short article:

Christianity Without Paul
What would the religion be like if the Apostle Paul had never lived?
By Bart Ehrman
What would have happened had Paul never lived? One could argue that the vast majority of people who today call themselves Christian would still be worshiping the gods of Greece and Rome, and Christianity would be one of the small sects within Judaism, with little impact on the world around it.
Lots more is available on the site in connection with the forthcoming special Jesus and Paul and I will be linking to some of the other items later.
