A Spiritual Resume

As Pastor Evan explains from 2 Corinthians 11:16-32, the pseudo/false apostles have led the people of Corinth astray in believing that drawing attention to themselves and what they have done or accomplished is true spirituality.  Paul's response is to give them a list of his own "accomplishments": suffering and hardship in order to further the Gospel, because that is what it takes to be a spiritual person or have spiritual authority.
