I will answer you with two verses from Quran that describes your position:
(Nobel-Translation)(2 - Al-Baqarah)(79. Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say, "This is from Allâh," to purchase with it a little price! Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for that they earn thereby.)
(Nob âh," but it is not from Allâh; and they speak a lie against Allâh while they know it.)
Page after page of his writings unveil such rich insight into the nature of the life in Christ that we'd be severely handicapped without it.
I have learned so much about living the Christian life from Paul that I can't imagine not consulting his wisdom.
I have no comment about your verses from the Quran because that is not my book of faith.
But, not to sound disrespectful, you have to be CRAZY to think that we Christians can afford to ignore Paul's insight and wisdom into the nature of the Christian life.
