Persuasive Language – Ken Barnes

My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power (1 Corinthians 2: 4 NIV).

The Apostle Paul had determined to know nothing but “Jesus Christ and him crucified” (v. 2). Some of us use persuasive language based on the wisdom of man, instead of the power of God (v. 5). It is fine to use your eloquence to communicate the Gospel better, but it is not acceptable to use the Gospel to demonstrate your rhetorical skills.

Paul’s message was God-centered and not man-centered. He sought only to glorify Christ. Some of us in our public speaking like to use ten-dollar words. Impressive words that may or may not communicate to our audience. These expressions may indicate that the speaker is smarter than others, but do they actually make those with whom he speaks smarter? It is not as if Paul was not a skilled speaker. He “determined” (v.2) to know nothing among them and to not come with “superiority of speech.” The Greek culture of the day valued philosophy and human wisdom. Paul valued divine insight. His enemies, both inside and outside the church spoke contemptuously of him. For some say, “His letters are weighty and forceful, but in person he is unimpressive, and his speaking amounts to nothing” (2 Corinthians 10:10 NIV). The strategy of the enemy of the Gospel has never changed. Smear the messenger to discredit the message.

What was Paul’s response to these accusations? He let the truth speak for itself. He didn’t try to be more eloquent with impressive words. He proclaimed the simple message of the Gospel and allowed the power of God to validate his message. In the end, this is the most persuasive of all language.

Recent Amazon Review: 

"For anyone on the fence, backsliding, or doubtful this book clarifies misunderstandings, perceived contradictions, and outright lies. I was led to read this book at a time when I thought I was over Jesus; but truth defeats lies every time and never forsakes the believer." 2-18-17
