How can you assert that reading scripture in the Light of Christ is hearsay? It can only be heretical if you are NOT a Christian. What IS HEARSAY is to claim Christ, but reject His teaching. HE is the WORD
(John 1: 1-14)
Following the Way of Christ means following His teachings and His teachings ALONE. Paul, by his own admission, was simply a commentator, an interpreter of Christ's teachings.

To accept Christ as God, Redeemer, Savior, Messiah is to accept His teachings and His alone
(John 1: 17-18). It is clear, reading His words as recorded in the Gospels, that Christ interpreted the Law and the Prophets much differently than the Scribes, Pharisees, and Sadducees of His day. That fact alone leads to the reality that to follow Christ is to read the Law, the Prophets, and especially Paul’s letters and the other Epistles in the New Testament through the lens of Christ’s teaching. Any other reading of scripture is anti-christian, opposite to the teachings of Christ.

Scripture can be read any way you like, but for it to be interpreted as Christian it MUST be read in light of the Gospel, in the Light of the Words of Christ. Your reading, your interpretation of scripture is just that, YOUR reading. It is not of Christ and IS anti-Christian.

A Rehashed Kind of HERESY!

Yeah, sounds like Peter thought Paul was teaching the Gospel rightly!
