Power

This is the third time that I’m coming to visit you. Every matter is settled on the evidence of two or three witnesses. When I was with you on my second visit, I already warned those who continued to sin. Now I’m repeating that warning to all the rest of you while I’m at a safe distance: if I come again, I won’t spare anyone.Since you are demanding proof that Christ speaks through me, Christ isn’t weak in dealing with you but shows his power among you. Certainly he was crucified because of weakness, but he lives by the power of God. Certainly we also are weak in him, but we will live together with him, because of God’s power that is directed toward you. (2 Corinthians 13:1-4, CEB)

I wonder how does Paul know that the Corinthians are sinning, and what is their sin?

Whoever they are they were sinning and have continued to sin.

God has the power to stop us from sinning, but when will God stop those who are sinning, and what sin will warrant this?

Sin for some is a list of rules that we must follow, like not wearing clothing of mixed fibers, or eating the dairy of an animal with it’s meat, or eating bottom feeding fish… All of these are things that most if not all of us break that are rules in the Bible.

So what is sin and what were the Corinthians doing?

How can we know we are living the way God calls us to live if we can’t define sin?
