2 Corinthians 8:10
So here is my opinion on this matter: It is to your advantage, since you made a good start last year both in your giving and your desire to give,
But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I am going away. For if I do not go away, the Advocate will not come to you, but if I go, I will send him to you.
(Now it was Caiaphas who had advised the Jewish leaders that it was to their advantage that one man die for the people.)
1 Corinthians 6:12
"All things are lawful for me" -- but not everything is beneficial. "All things are lawful for me" -- but I will not be controlled by anything.
1 Corinthians 10:23
"Everything is lawful," but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is lawful," but not everything builds others up.
2 Corinthians 12:11
I have become a fool. You yourselves forced me to do it, for I should have been commended by you. For I lack nothing in comparison to those "super-apostles," even though I am nothing.
2 Corinthians 11:16
I say again, let no one think that I am a fool. But if you do, then at least accept me as a fool, so that I too may boast a little.
