SIMPLICITY

2 Corinthians 11:3

 

But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray

 

 

LESSON

Paul’s critics were not just calling his apostolic authority into question. They were leading the Corinthians “astray.” The apostle communicated the seriousness of this seduction by comparing it with the serpent’s cunning deception of Eve. “The very future of the Corinthians as an apostolic church is in jeopardy.

 

Genuine Christians can be, and are being deceived by false teachers, and are abandoning their faith today. This sometimes happens when young people go off to college and conclude that what they learned in church is unscientific. It also happens when Christians accept the teachings of cultists who come knocking on their doors.

 

Memory Verse: Matthew 6:21

 

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
