1 Thessalonians 2:1-9 You know, brothers and sisters, that our visit to you was not without results.  2 We had previously suffered and been treated outrageously in Philippi, as you know, but with the help of our God we dared to tell you his gospel in the face of strong opposition.  3 For the appeal we make does not spring from error or impure motives, nor are we trying to trick you.
