1 Tim. 1:12-15

12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;

13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy , because I did [it] ignorantly in unbelief.

14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

15 This [is] a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

Paul WAS a blasphemer and persecutor of Christians and Christianity.  He longer does that.   But like all Christians; we are still sinners.  And each of us should consider ourselves "the chief sinner", holding ourselves not above any other.
