2 Corinthians 11:14
14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
What does 2 Corinthians 11:14 mean?
Second Corinthians 11:1–15 includes Paul’s unmasking of the false apostles in Corinth. They are like the serpent in the garden tempting Eve. Or, they resemble a man trying to seduce a betrothed woman away from her promised husband. They disguise themselves as servants of righteousness as Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Paul is a spiritual father who must protect the Corinthians from deceptions like a false Christ and a false spirit. Paul doubles down on his commitment not to take funds from the Corinthians for his own needs, simply to prove how he is different from the false apostles.
