asyndeton 
needs to be interpreted against the other options that it isn't.

it's common use for sentences in the epistles is to 'join' two items in a
"head + head" relationship. that is, not semantically subordinated, simply
listed.

for general discussion within a textlinguistic framework try:
stephen levinson, discourse features of new testament greek. sil, 1993(?)

or a specialized treatment:
randall buth, "oun, de, kai and asyndeton in john's gospel" linguistics and
NT interpretation, ed. david black. broadmans, 1992:144-161
