1 Corinthians 1:21; 1 Thessalonians 4:5; 2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 John 4:8

21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach1 to save those who believe.

not in mthe passion of lust nlike the Gentiles owho do not know God;

min flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those nwho do not know God and on those who odo not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

lAnyone who does not love does not know God, because mGod is love.
