2 Corinthians 11:1-15

Paul is concerned that the Corinthians believers might become deceived by false teachers. They had interacted with people claiming to be Christian teachers who were not teaching the truth, that the apostles had received from Jesus and faithfully taught abroad. We must also be careful to focus on the pure teaching of Jesus as seen in Scripture. We should develop our ability to distinguish this from false teaching. We read about the contrast between the genuine selfless motives Paul had proven through years of his actions and the selfish motives of these false teachers. This should be an important lesson for us.
