Bible: 2 Corinthians 10:1-4

Paul’s Authority from the Lord

10:1 Now I, Paul, appeal to you 1  personally 2  by the meekness and gentleness 3  of Christ (I who am meek 4  when present among 5  you, but am full of courage 6  toward you when away!) – 10:2 now I ask that when I am present I may not have to be bold with the confidence that (I expect) I will dare to use against some who consider us to be behaving 7  according to human standards. 8  10:3 For though we live 9  as human beings, 10  we do not wage war according to human standards, 11  10:4 for the weapons of our warfare are not human weapons, 12  but are made powerful by God 13  for tearing down strongholds. 14  We tear down arguments 15
