Bible: John 8:42-47

8:42 Jesus replied, 1 If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come from God and am now here. 2  I 3  have not come on my own initiative, 4  but he 5  sent me. 8:43 Why don’t you understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot accept 6  my teaching. 7  8:44 You people 8  are from 9  your father the devil, and you want to do what your father desires. 10  He 11  was a murderer from the beginning, and does not uphold the truth, 12  because there is no truth in him. Whenever he lies, 13  he speaks according to his own nature, 14  because he is a liar and the father of lies. 15  8:45 But because I am telling you 16  the truth, you do not believe me. 8:46 Who among you can prove me guilty 17  of any sin? 18  If I am telling you 19  the truth, why don’t you believe me? 8:47 The one who belongs to 20  God listens and responds 21  to God’s words. You don’t listen and respond, 22  because you don’t belong to God.” 23
