This is the third time I am coming to you. "Any charge must be sustained by the evidence of two or three witnesses."
I warned those who sinned previously and all the others, and I warn them now while absent, as I did when present on my second visit, that if I come again, I will not be lenient—
since you desire proof that Christ is speaking in me. He is not weak in dealing with you, but is powerful in you.
