False teachers in Corinth were criticizing and even slandering the Apostle Paul. After Paul apologetically wrote in defense of his calling and ministry as an apostle, he then wrote of his love for the people of Corinth and his concerns for their spiritual condition. He was grieved that many of them had remained defiant in their sin, and ignored his apostolic admonitions to repent. Please open your Bible to Second Corinthians chapter twelve, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his study of verses eleven through twenty-one.
