Act 17: 22-34 Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: \"Men of Athens!... The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth...He himself gives all men life and breath and everything else... 26From one man he made every nation of men... He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. 27God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. 28For in him we live and move and have our being... now he commands all people everywhere to repent. 31For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the Man [Jesus Christ] He has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising Him from the dead.\"

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
