2 Corinthians 11:11-15

11:11 Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! 1  11:12 And what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may eliminate any opportunity for those who want a chance to be regarded as our equals 2  in the things they boast about. 11:13 For such people are false apostles, deceitful 3  workers, disguising themselves 4  as apostles of Christ. 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself 5  as an angel of light. 11:15 Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves 6  as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions. 7
