    Paul gives an account of the trials and struggles he went through for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and he encourages the saints to remain focus on that gospel and not allow false doctrine to come in and confuse them.
  • As a "chaste virgin to Christ " Paul feared that the Corinthians would revert back to their former ways before they came into the knowledge of the truth. Prior to that time, they have been deceived just as Eve was!
