    [God’s] will is that all sorts of people should be saved
    and come to an accurate knowledge of truth.

    1 Tim. 2:4.

    What is your view of the many sorts of people who have yet to learn the truth?

    Although the apostle Paul searched in synagogues for those who already knew something about God, he certainly did not restrict his efforts to Jewish people. On Paul’s first missionary journey, for instance, the Lycaonian people mistook him and Barnabas for superheroes—as incarnations of their false gods Zeus and Hermes.

    Were Paul and Barnabas tempted to ride the wave of popularity? Would that seem to be a refreshing break from all the persecution they had experienced in the last two cities they visited? Did they imagine that the publicity could help to advance the good news? Not at all!

    They immediately protested by ripping their garments and leaping into the crowd, crying out: “Why are you doing these things? We too are humans having the same infirmities as you have.”

    Acts 14:8-15. w18.09 4-5 ¶8-9
