  • II Corinthians 11:8-33
  • II Corinthians 11:8-9 – Notice that Paul’s example here shows churches sending money to him directly. This is an important pattern because it allows the church that is sending the money to maintain control of it. If other churches had sent money to the Corinthian church to support Paul, they would have ceded control of the money, which breeds all sorts of problems and breaks the autonomy that should exist between local churches.
  • II Corinthians 11:19 – Paul is being sarcastic here. Gladly tolerating the foolish certainly doesn’t make anyone wise!
