introducing ordinary people to extraordinary, ever-growing life in Jesus, our Savior


Sound Reasoning – We Should Be Reasonable





Description: As Paul continues to appeal to Philemon, the host of the church and a slavemaster, he appeals by way of reason, not rule. He does not abuse, or even use, his power. Instead Paul uses ideas and logic. He reasons with Philemon logically. Christians today will do well to follow this pattern of calm reason rather than emotional appeal or power plays to get their way. Logic unites. Power creates resentment.
