What does it mean to be “betrothed to one husband”?

2 Corinthians 11:2–3 (ESV)
For I feel a divine jealousy for you, since I betrothed you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ. But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
To be fully committed to one individual, Jesus
not to entertain thoughts of chasing after other things
To prepare yourself for your wedding day with that one person in mind
We do this by training ourselves in obeying God’s word

In what ways do we readily put up with modern “Super Apostles”?

2 Corinthians 11:4–5 (ESV)
For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough. Indeed, I consider that I am not in the least inferior to these super-apostles.
We take our life advice from people/resources that aren’t based in the Bible
We don’t actively seek guidance from the Bible either
We prioritize things that aren’t from God
Things that the world holds highly

How can we discern true righteousness from false righteousness?

2 Corinthians 11:14–15 (ESV)
And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.
What are they preaching?
It had better be the gospel!
How do we know the gospel? From Scripture
Acts 17:10-11, Bereans examining the Scriptures to see if Paul’s teaching was true
