  • By His Authority. Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Feb 14, 2020

    Paul continues to answer his critics in Corinth, and we are faced with the same problem we had before; we are only hearing one side of the argument, Paul’s side, and we can only deduce what the criticisms were from Paul’s reply to them.

    December 10, 2014 Tom Lowe The Second Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians Lesson IV.A.2: By his Authority. (10:7-11). 2nd Corinthians 10:7-11 (NKJV) 7 Do you look at things according to the outward appearance? If anyone is convinced in himself that he is Christ's, let him again more

  • When Paul Got One-Star Reviews

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on Apr 30, 2019

    The Corinthians criticize Paul's preaching. What can we learn from this conflict?

    [First half of church fight story from Andy Stanley about his Dad - this can be found at the start of Andy Stanley's book Deep and Wide] TRASHING PAUL: It is both stunning and comforting that Paul got some negative reviews. - 2 Corinthians 10:1, 9-10. - We usually think of Paul as the great more

  • Who's In Charge Around Here Series

    Contributed by Donald Mcculley on Mar 20, 2019

    Why would Paul bring up this subject? Because the Corinthians needed to decide who their authority would be.

    WHO’S IN CHARGE AROUND HERE? II CORINTHIANS 10:7-11 INTRODUCTION: A man wandered into the pastor’s study and said, “I’m looking for someone around here with a little authority.” The pastor replied, “I’ve got just about as little authority as anyone, what you need?” Who’s in charge around more

  • A Defense Of God Given Authority Series

    Contributed by Dennis Davidson on Apr 13, 2015
    based on 1 rating

    Those called of God are to use their spiritual authority to build people up & not to tear down. Those who have been granted authority in Christ have within them the ability to call forth the true exercise of authority.

    2 CORINTHIANS 10: 7-11 [GAINING PERSPECTIVE Series] A DEFENSE OF GOD GIVEN AUTHORITY As I read these words, I am appalled at the attacks that were leveled at Paul and the pain he must have felt. What spiritual battles he must have fought yet he still maintained the meekness and gentleness more

  • Keeping A Clear Head During Mixed-Up Times Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Sep 24, 2012

    Leading and following during uncertain eras of church life require us to keep a clear head. So does handling life. Paul rehearses some principles that can help us do that.

    Keeping A Clear Head During Mixed-Up Times 2 Corinthians 10 1. I had a stressful weak; my sister is approaching death, and she and my brother-in-law had to talk about some painful decisions. 2. It is hard to keep a clear head when you are unsure, upset, and heart-broken. 3. But it is our more

  • How Do You Measure Up? Series

    Contributed by Guy Mcgraw on Mar 12, 2012
    based on 1 rating

    The question answered in this passage is what is the standard or basis by which we can determine whether Paul or we or anyone measures up?

    Somewhere between his 2nd and 3rd missionary journey false teachers had entered the city of Corinth and had turned the hearts of the people against Paul Launched a campaign seeking to undermine Paul’s ministry and to steal the flock in Corinth. These false teachers had said a lot of more

  • Who Is Better?

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Aug 29, 2011

    It is human nature to compare ourselves to one another. We do it all of the time very naturally and almost without noticing it. That's what was happening in Corinth and it was giving the Corinthians a false impression about who to trust.

    There is an old saying “appearances can be deceiving.” Or: “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” In the case of the Corinthians, those sayings apply very well. They fell into a trap that many of us fall prey to, using human senses to judge spiritual realities. In this more

    Paul had his critics there in Corinth and in this last section of the letter Paul makes a strong defense against them. We learn some helpful things from Paul about dealing with our own critics.

    Introduction: A. The story is told about D.L. Moody, one of the most effective American evangelists of the 1800s. 1. Like all preachers, he had some supporters and some critics. 2. One day we went into the pulpit to give his sermon. 3. He looked down on the podium and noticed a note for more

    Word for Canada The Lord is widening the net and narrowing the road. Luke 5:5-6 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their more

  • Breaking Free Of Inferiority

    Contributed by Bruce Willis on Sep 8, 2007
    based on 34 ratings

    This sermon seeks to help believers break free from attitudes and feelings of inferiority by dealing with the defects and differences in our lives.

    Most people suffer from some form of inferiority. Even the attitude of superiority is an evidence of feeling inferior deep down and in some area of selfhood. Inferiority comes by comparing those things in our lives which are unchangeable to those features in other people. If we compare our more

  • The Real Insurgency, Pt. 1 Series

    Contributed by Jim Cunningham on Sep 2, 2006
    based on 24 ratings

    A look at spiritual warfare, based not on the popular ideas on the subject, but on the biblical text.

    I am sure that nearly all of us are aware that our country, though not in a declared war, is still fighting two campaigns half a world away. What these campaigns have in common is that the enemy, while defeated, is still waging a war of insurgency against our troops and against our more

    based on 2 ratings

    Second in a series looking at spiritual warfare not on the basis of popular Christian views, but on biblical teaching.

    Two weeks ago I started preaching on this passage, and I told you at the time that as I began to study though it, what I had intended to be a single sermon had grown into at least two. Now it looks like three. And frankly, we could spend many more weeks on the subject of spiritual warfare. As I more

  • The Real Insurgency, Pt. 3 Series

    based on 4 ratings

    Third in a series looking at spiritual warfare not on the basis of popular Christian views, but based on the biblical text.

    The third and hopefully last in this series on spiritual warfare. To go back and recap: 1) So much has been written in the last 35 years, much of it with wild sounding terms like spiritual mapping, casting down strongholds, generational curses and binding spirits. I am not saying, nor have I more
