An example of Paul mentioning men first before God leads to questions

PAULíS FIRST EPISTLE TO THE THESSALONIANS.

1 Thessalonians 2:10, Paul says, "Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily, and justly, and unblamably, we behaved ourselves among you that believe."

In a teacher of men, whose object it was to establish a new faith, it appears unbecoming to mention first, men, as witnesses, and secondly, God. A candid perusal of the writings of Paul accounts for this peculiarity of arranging his ideas. He impresses on the reader the suspicion that he was guided by expediency, more than by true religious feeling, and that his mind was not influenced by the elevated sentiments of piety.
