God's City Everywhere
We stood in Athens on Mars' Hill, the hill where the high court of ancient Athens convened and where Paul had declared God to those who worshiped "the unknown god." We recalled his explanation of God, especially the words, "In him we live, and move, and have our being." Acts 17:28; We considered the many cities Paul's feet had trod and what he did for those cities—Corinth, Ephesus, Jerusalem, even Rome—and his letters to those who believed his teaching and were beginning to accept Christianity, to accept that "the invisible things of him [God] from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made." Rom. 1:20;
We then considered the cities of today and felt a deep desire to understand and prove the spiritual facts—the unseen things—of our present-day cities.
In the face of pollution, violence, slums, what are we to do? Look on in disgust, move away, condemn government? Or should we focus our thoughts on the spiritual reality of the city of God, on the things invisible to human eyes but clearly discernible to Christianly scientific perception?
