The pupil is not greater than the teacher.

ROM 9:19-20 You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who resists His will? On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it?
This is probably a little strong for your average sweet so-called lovable Christian, who behind that facade of love is a vicious two-face, double-crossing, lying hypocrite.
I have no authorization from the word of God to kind of “smooth over” some of Paul’s so-called rough points. The apostle Paul was a very controversial and feisty individual known to have an outgoing aggressive personality,
Anyone who was mentored and even mentioned by him, or who taught and mentioned Paul’s doctrinal teaching also became subject to the controversy, lies and jealousy that followed Paul wherever he went.
LUK 6:40, “A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.”
