"you awake the patient’s reason"
Saint Paul Writing His Epistles
The apostle Paul
did not believe that faith was a result of emotion or blind devotion. Acts 18:19 says he ‘reasoned with the Jews’ in a synagogue. He also defended Jesus’ death and resurrection as ‘true and reasonable’ (Acts 26:25).
Peter also defended the faith as reasonable and urged followers of Christ to 'always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give a reason for the hope that you have' (1 Peter 3:15).
