THE SECOND EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE CORINTHIANS
FRAUD BIBLE STUDY
There’s more Daily Bread on the table, so let’s dig in! What do we know so
far from the first chapter of this letter? We can surmise that someone was
stirring up trouble in Corinth, spreading rumors about Paul. So far, we know
that someone falsely accused Paul of erratically changing his mind. At the
end of the chapter, Paul’s first reaction was to point out that his actions
are according to the guidance of the
BIBLE LESSON ON
BIBLE VERSES WITH
Paul explains that he loves them
so much that he doesn't want to visit them on a sad note ... Having to
admonish them for things, because it doesn't really make for a pleasant
I decided that I wouldn’t visit you again in sorrow.
Because if I make you sad,
who is it then that makes me glad,
but the same which is made sad by me?
And I wrote this to you, for fear that, when I visit,
I might have sorrow from them of whom I ought to be happy
having confidence in you all, that my joy is your joy.
For out of much affliction and anguish of heart
I wrote to you with many tears; not that you should be
but that you might know the love which I have more deeply
Doesn’t that yank on your heart strings?
Here’s Paul, being slandered and he’s worried about the Corinthians being
ashamed, and just wants them to know all the more that he loves them.
But if anyone has caused me grief, he has only grieved me a little:
that I may not be too severe with all of you.
The punishment that many in the church have given to him is enough.
You should instead, forgive him, and comfort him,
So that he doesn’t become utterly discouraged.
For this reason, I urge you to assure him of your love.
I write to you for this reason as well,
that I might know the TRUTH about you,
whether you are obedient in all things.
Whoever you forgive, I forgive also
for your sakes in the person (presence) of Christ,
so that satan doesn’t get an advantage of us:
because we’re not ignorant of his ideas.
LESSON WITH FRAUD BIBLE EXPLANATION
note, if you like to read the text out of the Bible, back in Paul’s day,
when people wanted to show their sincerity about something or claim that
something was true, they would add “in the person (presence) of Christ” to
their claim, and they meant it literally as well, kind of like giving your
word with Jesus watching. You’ll notice that today, people are much more
careless about how they wield about the name of the Lord and say things
insensitively, without even thinking of what they mean when they say things
like, “in front of God and everybody.” Reverence is definitely a quality
that the society of today lacks. Just another pondering point.
Another thing to
tuck away in your memory banks is that satan would probably like nothing
more than when there are situations like this, that people would be
unforgiving and dwell on the punishment instead of forgiveness. It reminds
me a little bit of his unsuccessful attempts with Job, hoping to pull out
evil in people. Great advice from Paul interjected here, covering all the
bases as always.
Paul goes on now to explain:
Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's Gospel,
and an door of opportunity was opened to me by the Lord,
I was worried in my spirit, because I didn’t find my friend Titus:
but when I left them, I went from there into Macedonia.
Now thanks be to God,
who always leads us in triumph in Christ,
and makes known the savor
of His knowledge by us in every place.
For we are, in God’s eyes, a sweet savor of Christ,
in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
to the one we are the savor of death unto death;
and to the other the savor of life unto life.
And who is good enough to do these things?
Because we are not like many,
which defile the Word of God:
but we are sincere,
we belong to God,
and in the sight of God we speak as servants of Christ.
FRAUD BIBLE INFORMATION WITH FRAUD BIBLE MEANING
Paul has a great defense for his credibility, by putting the Corinthians in
his shoes, saying, Look at who we are! Who’s adequate for the jobs that God
needs done? He uses the word “we” a lot in these last verses, so maybe he’s
pointing out (between the lines) that they, too, may face being called a
fraud someday, but in God’s eyes, “we” are the ones who are good enough to
work for Him.
Paul uses his own
unique psychology to get his point across. Even though he may include a
little warning between the lines, he focuses on positive things, building up
the believers and always guiding them to a righteous path. But, he doesn’t
want them to get carried away with the building up and become puffed up, so
you’ll have to join in again next time, and see what his next message is,
