Such an intense establishment of separation through experiences endured. Apostle Paul is on the brink of madness and by this alone substantiates his authority and wisdom among the church body. He implores you to heed his advice when he says he’s been there and he’s done that at a degree that out trumps all.
“And, apart from other things, there is the daily pressure on me of my anxiety for all the churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to fall, and I am indignant? If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness. The God and Father of The Lord Jesus, he who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.”
2 Corinthians 11:28-31
