PAUL IN ATHENS

The people at Athens were twisted in their mind. What they thought was the truth was a lie. On Paul’s journeys one of the towns he visited was Athens. As he walked through the town he was shocked. Everywhere he walked he could see idols, Idols, IDOLS!!! Paul went to reason with the people but all they said was “What is this man babbling about?” The people thought he was bringing strange ideas to their head. Paul told them that they were worshiping foreign Gods but the people refused to believe him. As Paul kept on walking through the town he came across an alter that said ‘The Unknown God’. Paul knew straightaway that the unknown God was our God up in heaven. The people at Athens were so concentrated on their idols they didn’t know who this mysterious God was. Then Paul went to the people of Athens and said to them,  “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 human hands. For in him we live and move and have our being,”. Paul went on speaking and told them about the resurrection, but when the people heard this they sneered and refused to believe but others wanted to hear him again on that subject. When Paul finished speaking many of them believed and were baptised.
We must learn to not be take away by our lusts it to stand firm with God…
