The Athenians and the Unknown God




Despite the prevalence of worship of multiple deities, strangely there is one they couldn't figure out and subsequently tagged him "THE UNKNOWN GOD". It was on this backdrop that Paul reasoned with them that the unknown God is indeed the creator of all things, etc. However, their analytical mind could not accept the doctrine of resurrection as they mocked Paul when he told them that Jesus rose from the dead (Acts 17:32). What stands out for me is Acts 17:18 Then certain of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus and the resurrection. Philosophers are known to be analytical, apt to logic and rhetoric and in such discipline, there is little or no room for faith. Perhaps it's not surprising that they couldn't believe and be saved. Unfortunately, this approach to the Gospel hasn't changed in 2000 years! Most prominent atheists are often not only very well educated but above average intellectuals. The world's scientific community boasts the largest number of academic unbelievers. Why is it so?Does anyone have any idea why people who seek logic in everything never seem to find the life-saving truth in the scriptures?

    Hi, I can see how hell and darkness are commonly associated with the kingdom of the antichrist in scripture, textually, so is it another layer to the meaning of the scriptures ? Hades - not knowing Darkness - to have the mind blindedBoth " not knowing " and a " blinded mind " basically refer to ignorance, do they not ?Do these terms refer to ignorance of the kingdom of God and the scriptures themselves, or possibly both ?I don't recall any scriptures saying that those in hell will have their minds blinded, so this seems rather strange to me Any ideas ? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References:- P2P currency example Thanks

    Hi, I know this sounds kind of crazy, but I read a newer "Ancient Aramaic" transliteration into English of Genesis and there are clues clearly given in the wording that point to the possibility that God created Adam originally to be both male andmy search for a more or accurate translation of the Bible I found Victor Alexander's Ancient Aramaic translation of Genesis along with other books of the Old Testament and the complete New Testament.These versions also have the word "she" in a couple of places referring to the Holy Spirit.I know we have to be careful of false prophets and false teachers these days but I don't have a feeling that Victor is trying to deceive anyone. These are very interesting thoughts are, have we put God in a box... Could God, being perfect...balanced, have a mothering or nurturing attribute in the Holy Spirit?I'm just thinking out loud here.What are your thoughts? Please help.

    Hello, Lately I've felt spiritually separate from God, though my faith has never been stronger. It's the personal relationship that I seemed to lack, putting my knowledge and understanding before God and these of others before him. I was surrendering my responsibility of coming to God, as a Christian it's by Christ who knows and understands more than any of us; first place I come to him is the Gospels. Thankfully the Holy Spirit lead me to bible and being inspired I continued further googling for help as what to do; what I found was part two (The Gospel and the Discipline of Bible Intake) of an article about having the Gospel and Jesus at the center of reading, now I eventually realized there's a part one! Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References:- Blockchain digital marketing Thanks
