Where the world comes to study the Bible

This message on 2 Corinthians 2:12-17 was preached at Arbor Oaks Bible Chapel in Dubuque, Iowa (September 23, 2007). This message deals with life and ministry of Paul as both a conquered individual-- a slave-- as well as a an ambassador-- a servant-- of the King of Kings. Far from being a self-focused ministry of prosperity preaching, the message of the cross is both an aroma of death, and an aroma of life. This message confronts us with such questions as: What is the message of the cross to us--one of condemnation or of life? What is the nature of our ministry? Who does it exalt? Are we sharing the true message of the cross? Where does our strength and message come from?
