But when God, who set me apart from birth and called me by his grace, was pleased 16to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not consult any man, 17nor did I go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went immediately into Arabia and later returned to Damascus.
18Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Peter and stayed with him fifteen days. 19I saw none of the other apostles—only James, the Lord’s brother. 20I assure you before God that what I am writing you is no lie. 21Later I went to Syria and Cilicia. 22I was personally unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. 23They only heard the report: “The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” 24And they praised God because of me.

My question of the day is this: why the crap didn’t Paul consult with any man? He just had a crazy, psychidelic experience. What the heck was he doing in Arabia…. milking Camels? What the monkey was paul doing for three years before he started his ministry? That sounds absolutely nuts to me.
Anyways, just wanted to say reading that passage messed me up for today.
