Paul Defends His Ministry (1:12—7:16)

We have all faced criticism at one time or another. In the church, the pastor(s) and leaders in particular bear the brunt of a great deal of griping. It was no different in the first century. The Pharisees and scribes were constantly criticizing Jesus. Even the churches that James wrote to had to be told to stop their grumbling and complaining (5:9).
