What Paul did in the Corinthians Church was to do something that he found extraordinarily difficult to do. He had decided to use the worldly tactic of comparing himself to his opponents and last week we spent some time looking at this. This week we continue with the same theme, but Paul now goes on to compare himself with those who are bragging about their communication with God, as we say, “To fight fire with fire” and so he compares their visions to his own but there is always a twist in how he goes about this!
2 Timothy 3: 16-17
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
