Paul as a non-Philosopher

“Politicians have become masters of “spinning the truth” in their favor. Ancient Sophists were trained in this very skill. They developed the ability to argue for or against anything at any time, spinning the facts in a way which gave the result their patrons desire.

In 1 Thessalonians 2 Paul says this is not the way he presented the Gospel. He was not a huckster trying to get rich off the Gospel nor was he a slick philosopher trying to manipulate the audience to believing the Gospel.”
