Three truths about Christian persuasion.
- Christian persuasion, while always addressing the human mind and therefore focusing on the act of knowing, must also address the human heart and what Bible views as the anatomy of belief and unbelief.
- Christian persuasion, while addressing the mind, must be faithful to address the heart, including the passions or emotions.
- Christian persuasion is for those who love God, who wish to make the best possible case for the one they know and love, and who appreciate that love is an essential part of the knowledge that stems from true seeking and finding.
