Temple of God

“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that He is Lord of heaven and earth, DWELLS NOT IN TEMPLES MADE WITH HANDS; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though He needed any thing, seeing He gives to all life, and breath, and all things;” Acts 17:24-25 (emphasis added).
The Holy Spirit does not dwell in temples made with the hands of man.
“Know you not that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16.
The definition of superstition is a belief or practice resulting from ignorance or a false conception of causation. Sadly, superstition is rampant in the modern church as a result of ignorance and/or false conception of causation. It is the Holy Spirit in the temple of God, which is the Child of God, that breaks bondages, set the captives free and heal the broken hearted when the Lord Jesus Christ, Who He is and what He has done on Calvary’s Cross for whosoever will believe, is lifted up to the people.
“And I (Jesus), if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me.” John 12:32.
The weight of the conviction of the Holy Spirit on the sinner will bring the sinner to repentance. We are commissioned to go out to all the world and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The commission of the modern church is to lift up the church to the world and they (the modern church house) will draw all men unto them. The Gospel of Jesus doesn’t not need manipulation to convict the sinner or the Saint. The Gospel of Jesus Christ and His atoning work on Calvary’s Cross needs to be lifted up to ALL men, sinners and Saints, and the Holy Spirit will draw them.  
Know you not that the temple of God dwells in the Believer and not in temples made with hands?  Beware of superstition in temples made with hands.
“Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, You men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are too superstitious.” Acts 17:22.
