Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me. I came from God, and now I am here. I have not come on my own. He sent me.
"Why aren't my words clear to you? Because you can't really hear what I say.
You belong to your father, the devil. You want to obey your father's wishes. "From the beginning, the devil was a murderer. He has never obeyed the truth. There is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his natural language. He does this because he is a liar. He is the father of lies.
"But because I tell the truth, you don't believe me!
Can any of you prove I am guilty of sinning? Am I not telling the truth? Then why don't you believe me?
"Everyone who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you don't hear is that you don't belong to God."
