CONCLUDING REMARKS ON THE SECOND EPISTLE TO THE CORINTHIANS.The most remarkable circumstance in this Epistle, observes Mr.
Scott, is the confidence of the Apostle in the goodness of hiscause, and in the power of God to bear him out in it. Opposedas he then was by a powerful and sagacious party, whoseauthority, reputation, and interest were deeply concerned, andwho were ready to seize on every thing that could discredit him,it is wonderful to hear him so firmly insist upon hisapostolical authority, and so unreservedly appeal to themiraculous power which he has exercised and conferred atCorinth. So far from shrinking from the contest, as afraid ofsome discovery being made, unfavourable to him and the commoncause, he, with great modesty and meekness indeed, but withequal boldness and decision, expressly declares that hisopposers and despisers were the ministers of Satan, and menacesthem with miraculous judgments, when as many of their deludedhearers had been brought to repentance and re-established in thefaith, as proper means could in a reasonable time effect. It isinconceivable that a stronger internal testimony, not only ofintegrity, but of divine inspiration, can exist. Had there beenany thing of imposture among the Christians, it was next toimpossible but such a conduct must have occasioned a disclosureof it. Of the effects produced by this latter epistle we haveno circumstantial account; for the journey which St. Paul tookto Corinth, after he had written it, is mentioned by St. Lukeonly in a few words, (Ac 20:2, 3) We know, however, that St.Paul was there after he had written this Epistle; that thecontributions for the poor brethren at Jerusalem were brought tohim from different parts to that city (Ro 15:26;) and that,after remaining there several months, he sent salutations fromsome of the principal members of that church, by whom he musthave been greatly respected, to the church of Rome (Ro 16:22,23.) From this time we hear no more of the false teacher andhis party; and when Clement of Rome wrote his epistle to theCorinthians, St. Paul was considered by them as a divineapostle, to whose authority he might appeal without fear ofcontradiction. The false teacher, therefore, must either havebeen silenced by St. Paul, by virtue of his apostolical powers,and by an act of severity which he had threatened, (2 Co 13:2,3;) or this adversary of the apostle had, at that time,voluntarily quitted the place. Whichever was the cause, theeffect produced must operate as a confirmation of our faith, andas a proof of St
Paul's divine mission.
