2 Corinthians 13:1-10, Truth or Consequences

The apostle Paul brought the letter to a conclusion in 2 Corinthians 13:1-10. He spoke directly, warning of discipline for those who reject the truth. He called for self-examination, counseling the Corinthians to implement biblical change or face severe consequences. He desired the former outcome but stood prepared to launch the latter. From this passage we learn that the biblical assembly maintains discipline to protect its members and preserve the truth.
