God who made the world and everything in it, is Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in man-made temples. Nor does he need anything that we can supply by working for him, since it is he himself who gives life and breath and everything else to everyone.
From one man he created all races of mankind and made them live throughout the whole earth. He himself fixed beforehand the exact times and the limits of the places where they would live. He did this so that they would look for him, and perhaps find him as they felt about for him. Yet God is actually not far from any one of us; as someone has said,
“In him we live and move and exist.” It is as some of your poets have said, “We too are his children.”
Since we are God’s children, we should not suppose that his nature is anything like an image of gold or silver or stone shaped by the art and skill of man. God has overlooked the times when people did not know him, but now he commands all of them everywhere to turn away from their evil ways. For he has fixed a day in which he will judge the whole world with justice by means of a man he has chosen. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising that man from death!”
(The Bible, Acts of Apostles 17:24).
One priest told his congregation that there are 572 different sins mentioned in the Bible.
He received numerous requests for the list from people who thought they might be missing something.
