They said Paul’s Pen was Nice but His Vocals were Weak

Paul’s haters said his writing was powerful but his speech and performance and stage presence were weak.

2 Corinthians 10
10 For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.
11 Let such an one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in deed when we are present.

He basically said to those who thought that – the same things we write when we’re gone is the same things we are going to do in front of your face.

We’re still going to do what we write because we’re not actors or performers. We still match words with actions and it has nothing to do with the skillful oratory or stage presence of a hypocrite.

From Moses to Paul God still chooses the weak things of the world to confound the wise and bring deliverance to a generation. Never underestimate a messenger of God.
