Now I, Paul, appeal to you with the gentleness and kindness of Christ—though I realize you think I am timid in person and bold only when I write from far away.
Well, I am begging you now so that when I come I won’t have to be bold with those who think we act from human motives.
We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do.
We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.
References for 2 Corinthians 10:4
We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.
And after you have become fully obedient, we will punish everyone who remains disobedient.
