Bible Quote 17:22 Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: "Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious.
17:23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription:
17:24 "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.
17:25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else.

17:26 From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.
17:27 God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.
17:28 'For in him we live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.'
17:29 "Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone--an image made by man's design and skill.
17:30 In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.

17:31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead."
Bible Quote 14:15 "If you love me, you will obey what I command.

14:16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever--
14:17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
14:18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
14:19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
14:20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.

14:21 Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him."
