Repent and Believe

In Athens

God that made the world and all things therein,
    Seeing that He is Lord of Heaven and Earth,
Dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
    Neither is worshipped with men’s hands,
    As though He needed anything,
Seeing He giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
    And hath made of one blood all nations of men
    for to dwell on all the face of the earth,
And hath determined the times before appointed
    and the bounds of their habitation;
That they should seek the Lord,
    if haply they might feel after Him and find Him,
    though He is not far from every one of us:
For in Him we live, and move, and have our being,
As certain, also of your own poets have said,
     For we are also his offspring.
Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God,
    we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold,
    or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
And the times of this ignorance God winked at;
    but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent:
Because He hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world
    in righteousness by that Man whom He hath ordained;
Whereof He hath given assurance unto all men,
    In that, He hath raised Him from the deadActs 17:24-31
