Is Paul A Paper Tiger? [2 Corinthians 10:1-6]

Gospel Light Christian Church by Gospel Light

Episode notes

By Pastor Jason Lim

Paul had been accused of being a timid, weak and wimpy man by his enemies.They say that he is all bark but no bite. He is just a paper tiger. An empty threat. He doesn't carry out the discipline he writes to warn people about anyway.He is not forceful nor assertive like the other false teachers.So Paul sets out to explain that he is not weak, but meek.He clarifies that the gospel ministry is not to be undertaken in carnal, fleshly ways.And so, we learn about the true nature of spritual ministry or spiritual warfare.We also gather that the power for effective gospel ministry lies in the simple and plain preaching of the gospel.
