    I'm trying to read KJV. Really strange words 'the filth of the world' are worth thinking about. We, "the best of the world" can be 'the filth', or, thinking about ourselves too high can't see anything, that we are loved, and only look and ask for 'carnal'.? Funny. Let's look for meekness withourt spirit - and we will find arrogance, How to understand and interiorate these words. Thank you.

    Amen Brother, Job 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

    Man most does not like being corrected at any time. But that is what our Heavenly Father does because love us that much.

    There is lots of teachers, pastors and preachers that preach the Word of God. We say to ourselves, who are we going to trust. Apostle Paul said, trust him. 15 For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

    Ray; Paul didn't want anyone to think he was an angel; but he was commending the eager and reverent reception he received from the Corinthians, because of the Word he was bringing to them. The wisdom that God gave to Paul, He is willing to give to you too; and the way all the Prophets and Apostles knew the Lord, and wrote of Him; He will give to you also, when you follow on with God like they did.
  • Ray321
    Galatians 4:14 And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. If Paul wants us to think of him like a Angel of God, that is saying a lot who Paul is. The Word speaks for it self. Praise the Lord.
