2 Corinthians (127)
Paul warned the Corinthians that they were in great danger. And yet his closing words were full of hope and expectation.
Lessons from Paul about the necessity and right use of church discipline.
Paul knew that if he spared the Corinthians, he would be viewed as a failure. But that was a price well worth paying if they were restored.
Paul urged the members of the church in Corinth to examine themselves. Were they truly saved? Would they die under God's judgement or would they submit to chastisement and be restored?
Paul had come to Corinth twice. If he came a third time and found no repentance, he would not spare the guilty.
