“I Know a Man”
2 Corinthians 12: 2, 4: “I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago … was caught up to the third heaven … into Paradise.” For two thousand years people have been speculating about where St. Paul went, and what He saw and heard there. But he would not, could not, say – he was strictly forbidden to do so. However, there’s one thing we can say: whatever he saw or heard did not change his message or his ministry. His experience did not cause him to write to any church and say, “Hey, about my letter before: I need to fix some things.” In other words, his revelations in Paradise gave first-hand validation to everything he had written before.
