2 Corinthians 10:1-6 New International Version

Paul's Defense of His Ministry

10 1  By the humility and gentleness of Christ, I appeal to you-I, Paul, who am "timid" when face to face with you, but "bold" toward you when away! 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. 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. 6  And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.
