2 I beg you that when I come I may not have to be as bold as I expect to be toward some people who think that we live by the standards of this world.
6 And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.
7 You are judging by appearances. If anyone is confident that they belong to Christ, they should consider again that we belong to Christ just as much as they do.
11 Such people should realize that what we are in our letters when we are absent, we will be in our actions when we are present.
18 For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends
3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
12 We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.
3We are human, but we don't wage war as humans do. 4*We use God's mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. 5We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. 6And after you have become fully obedient, we will punish everyone who remains disobedient.
17As the Scriptures say, "If you want to boast, boast only about the LORD."
I honestly have to rethink this whole verse, because this is very new for me today.
6And after you have become fully obedient, we will punish everyone who remains disobedient.
