Paul's Ministry Defended

6 and I am fully prepared to punish every act of disobedience, when once your submission has been put beyond question. 7 Look these facts in the face. If any man is fully persuaded as regards himself that he belongs to Christ, let him consider again with himself, that just as he is Christ's, so also am I. 8 If, however, I were to boast more loudly concerning the authority which the Lord gave me (not to cast you down, but to build you up), I should have no cause for shame.
