Second Corinthians:

This book covers an additional letter from Paul to the church at Corinth (Greece). Paul further pointed out that trying to be saved by keeping the Ten Commandments "ends in death," whereas (in the new way) the Holy Spirit gives life. (2 Corinthians 3:6) Paul said that Satan (the "god of this age") makes people blind to the Gospel. On death, Paul describes the heavenly dwelling where "we will be at home with the Lord" and where "we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body (i.e., here on earth), whether good or bad." (2 Corinthians 5:8-10)

Several of Paul's other points include

  1. "For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that ...He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again." (2 Corinthians5:14-15)
  2. "Therefore if anyone is in Christ (i.e., becomes a Christian), he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" (2 Corinthians 5:17)
  3. "Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation (i.e, sorrow could cause one to change his ways and be saved)..." (2 Corinthians 7:10)
