The trouble with church is that they ALWAYS want some thing from you …

It’s a serious problem.

Many people ARE offended by the way ‘the church’ seems to be always ‘on the take’.

And when Paul writes to Philemon, he really does want something from Philemon.

But he’s not asking someone who isn’t passionately keen to help.

And that seems to be the point.

The trouble with asking is when ‘the church’ asks the wrong people, for the wrong thing, for the wrong reasons.
