There is an account in the Bible about how Paul and Barnabas went to Lystra, preaching the gospel among the Gentiles, and then came across a cripple. Paul speaks to the cripple that he may be healed, and he is healed. Immediately, the people believe that Paul and Barnabas are gods, and decide that they want to do sacrifices for them. However, Paul and Barnabas tear their clothes and speak to them to convince them that they too are mere men. Not long after, some Jews come and turn the people (who moments earlier revered them as gods) against them, and they stone Paul until they believe he is dead, and drag him out of the city!
You can read the whole account at Acts 14:8-20. It is quite unfathomable how foolish humans are, without the true knowledge of God. In his speech to the pagans, who were about to worship men, Paul said concerning God that “in times past [He] suffered all nations to walk in their own ways” (verse 16). This was quite resounding to me. Religions like Hinduism and Buddism could spring up and develop roots, because God suffered them to be so ignorant. Well not anymore!
