2 Corinthians 11:3-6 (MSG)
3 And now I’m afraid that exactly as the Snake seduced Eve with his smooth patter, you are being lured away from the simple purity of your love for Christ.
4 It seems that if someone shows up preaching quite another Jesus than we preached—different spirit, different message—you put up with him quite nicely.
5 But if you put up with these big-shot “apostles,” why can’t you put up with simple me? I’m as good as they are.
6 It’s true that I don’t have their voice, haven’t mastered that smooth eloquence that impresses you so much. But when I do open my mouth, I at least know what I’m talking about. We haven’t kept anything back. We let you in on everything.
