Tact and Common Ground

July 14, 2011 Leave a comment

In verses 22-31, Paul models tact within the context of debate.

He doesn’t chew out the Athenians for their many idols.  Rather, he begins his gospel explanation by finding common ground with them.

Many aren’t convinces and still think he’s crazy, but at least Paul is polite and able to engage some people in further discussions.
