What if the Apostle Paul Was Your Pastor? — 3 Comments

  1. Dear Brother…

    I actually came across this a while back in my Bible study and the Lord led me to 2nd Corinthians to show me Paul’s change of heart on the matter. It is important (I think) to always read the passage in 1st Cor. and also take what Paul wrote in 2nd Cor. before forming any doctrinal belief system.

    The area of scripture in 2nd Cor. is as follows:

    For I wrote you out of great sorrow and deep distress [with mental torture and anxiety] of heart, [yes, and] with many tears, not to cause you pain but in order to make you realize the overflowing love that I continue increasingly to have for you. But if someone [the one among you who committed incest] has caused [all this] grief and pain, he has caused it not to me, but in some measure, not to put it too severely, [he has distressed] all of you.

    For such a one this censure by the majority [which he has received is] sufficient [punishment]. So [instead of further rebuke, now] you should rather turn and [graciously] forgive and comfort and encourage [him], to keep him from being overwhelmed by excessive sorrow and despair. I therefore beg you to reinstate him in your affections and assure him of your love for him; For this was my purpose in writing you, to test your attitude and see if you would stand the test, whether you are obedient and altogether agreeable [to following my orders] in everything.

    If you forgive anyone anything, I too forgive that one; and what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for your sakes in the presence [and with the approval] of Christ (the Messiah), To keep Satan from getting the advantage over us; for we are not ignorant of his wiles and intentions. 2 Cor 2:4-11 (AMPC)

    In His Love,

  2. Timely message for now. Anointing doesn’t appear to be used either (godly anounting) for illness, encouragement in growth, setting apart for specific callings. God bless you in your calling of sharing Father God’s truth.

  3. Not many want to hear the message about sin no, or anger or not liking some one in the church because one does not believe what they are saying or being used of God, they accuse one of something that is not true. Pray for me that I will continue to to fallow and obey what God tells me to do and show respect for these kind of people.
