2 Corinthians

Begins with Paul reminding the congregation of the Church at Corinth of his relationship with them. Paul set an example that any CHRIST follower could template their lives after, he was always honest & straightforward with everyone he came in contact with. Paul’s 1st letter dealt with helping them develope a mature Faith, gave them a platform for conflict resolution, sexual morality, marriage and how to deal with their consciences. His 2nd letter reviews his ministry among them & the growing problem of false teachers urging them to turn away from the truth, JESUS shed HIS BLOOD on the CROSS so we could have eternal Salvation. This letter is as true then as it is today, we are inundated by mass media contradicting GODs WORD we must not allow ourselves to be influenced by this ocean of sewage. We must hold everything up to the light of Scripture, discarding all untruths. Pray for discernment which leads to Wisdom, giving us a solid foundation when we come up against false teachings. Finally Paul tells us we must care for the poor.
