Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 7:2

7:2 Receive us - The sum of what is said in this, as well as in the tenth and following chapters. We have hurt no man - In his person. We have corrupted no man - In his principles. We have defrauded no man - Of his property. In this he intimates likewise the good he had done them, but with the utmost modesty, as it were not looking upon it.

People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 7:2

2Co 7:2 Receive us. Make room in your hearts for us and our admonitions. Compare 2Co 6:11-13. We have wronged no man. In the severe charges of his first letter. We have corrupted no man. Probably this is an answer to the vile insinuations of his adversaries at Corinth.

    2 Corinthians 7:8 For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season. In this letter, Paul never repented of sin, Paul repented of his way. In all 12 Paul's epistles, Paul never uses repentance as the final step to salvation. Repentance is change of way.

    I think Godly sorrow and repentance are the only way can be saved
  • Yetunde
    Ronnie: The spirit referred to here in 'the filthiness of the spirit' is the part of the soul called the 'heart' which we use to feel, not our 'spirit man' which is sealed by the Holyspirit when we are born again. Notice how this spirit heart of the soul is used interchangably together in these verses: Isa 65:14, Ps 51:17, 34:18, 51:10, Eze 36:26, etc

    I think sorrow is not part of repentance but it can lead to repentance. What do you think?
  • Maria Guadalupe Garcia
    Repent ! Knowing that u did something wrong recognizing it and repenting from it . For God knows ur heart. Applying his word to you.
