Bible: Acts 14:14-18

14:14 But when the apostles 1  Barnabas and Paul heard about 2  it, they tore 3  their clothes and rushed out 4  into the crowd, shouting, 5  14:15 Men, why are you doing these things? We too are men, with human natures 6  just like you! We are proclaiming the good news to you, so that you should turn 7  from these worthless 8  things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, 9  the sea, and everything that is in them. 14:16 In 10  past 11  generations he allowed all the nations 12  to go their own ways, 14:17 yet he did not leave himself without a witness by doing good, 13  by giving you rain from heaven 14  and fruitful seasons, satisfying you 15  with food and your hearts with joy.” 16  14:18 Even by saying 17  these things, they scarcely persuaded 18  the crowds not to offer sacrifice to them.
