Bible: John 5:39-44

5:39 You study the scriptures thoroughly 1  because you think in them you possess eternal life, 2  and it is these same scriptures 3  that testify about me, 5:40 but you are not willing to come to me so that you may have life.

5:41I do not accept 4  praise 5  from people, 6  5:42 but I know you, that you do not have the love of God 7  within you. 5:43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept 8  me. If someone else comes in his own name, you will accept 9  him. 5:44 How can you believe, if you accept praise 10  from one another and don’t seek the praise 11  that comes from the only God? 12
