Central Idea: None of this has been for Paul's sake (in self-defense) but for their sake; His fear is that things will be in such a mess when he arrives that it could all just explode into chaos, that nothing will have been addressed, not even the issues of immorality. Explanations / Questions: I suppose v.19a-b could be arced as Q-A: Q: Are we defending ourselves to you? A: No, we speak in the sight of God. However, I've arced this as Sit-R because Paul is anticipating a certain reaction to what he has said in the preceding paragraphs and is responding preemptively to their doubts over his intentions. v. 20, Paul's fear is not only that he may not find them as he wants, but also, "that you may find me not as you wish." He then describes the potentially ugly situation. Question: Does the 'second' fear refer to Paul's potentially harsh dealing with the junk then described (cf. 10:2,6)? Or, is Paul acknowledging the frustration in both 'parties' and the potential discord that may result? NLT takes the first track, while the Message takes the second. The ESV, NASB, KJV, and NIV all retain the ambiguity.

πάλαι δοκεῖτε ὅτι ὑμῖν ἀπολογούμεθα
Have you been thinking all along that we have been defending ourselves to you?
κατέναντι θεοῦ ἐν Χριστῷ λαλοῦμεν
It is in the sight of God that we have been speaking in Christ,
τὰ δὲ πάντα ἀγαπητοί ὑπὲρ τῆς ὑμῶν οἰκοδομῆς
and all for your upbuilding, beloved.
