I dedicate this website to the memory of my dear mother Doris Harmon, seen here in one of her high school pictures.  I expect to see her again.


To my sweet wife Gloria who is a great source of joy to me every day.

Paul's Demeanor in Corinth

Paul, the man who said:

Gal. 2:20 - "I am crucified with Christ ....."

Phil. 1:21 - "For to me to live is Christ .."


Phil. 2:7 - "Christ made himself of no reputation ..."

Is saying, in effect, "As I go to these people I must have no confidence in the flesh." - Phil. 3:3.


"I must not depend on the wisdom of words lest I violate the principle of the cross’ - I Cor. 1:17 .

For, Christ is my wisdom 1:30.

I must let His mind be in me - Phil. 2:5, and I must bring every thought into obedience to Christ - II Cor. 10:5.


I must put Christ on as if He were a garment to be worn before them - Rom. 13:14,

And make no provision for the flesh.

I must remember that I, Paul, am dead and my life is hid with Christ in God - Col. 3:3..

Certainly, in doing these things, I will be walking in the Spirit - Gal. 5:16 & 25 .

I not only am determined to preach Christ crucified - I Cor. 1:23,


I am determined by my actions, as well, not to know anything among them but Jesus Christ and Him crucified - 3:3, – For then, and then only am I embracing the cross and bearing Christ’s death in my body in order that His life may be manifest - II Cor. 4:10.


Thus it was that in presence he was abased - II Cor:10:1 , appearing weak and sounding contemptible - v. 10 .

but his preaching was in "demonstration of the Spirit and of power" - v. 4.
