Conversion of St Paul It is written in Acts 22:3,4,

“I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day. And I persecuted this way unto the death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.”

What I wish to point out is that Paul says he was taught according to the perfect manor of the law of his fathers yet he killed those who believed in Jesus.  Though schooled in all of the learning of the Jews, at the feet of Gamaliel, Paul was unequivocally wrong and it took a spiritual experience, a personal revelation of Jesus, to change his mind.

Therefore, we have scriptural precedence that illustrates how spiritual experience can and should fundamentally change a person’s doctrine.

Here is a truth,

“If it happened to him it can happen to you.”
