    Thank you Brother Luke for more enlightenment! I will be sure to remember and tell all my non-Cal friends that everything, including murders, rapes, thievery, etc, is from Him. You've really opened my eyes on this subject. I'm so glad that we are not responsible for our actions and that we don't need a Savior. All we need is to be hand selected by God to spend eternity with Him!

    Close but you are STILL responsible for your actions.

    And do not give me the credit- God's Word is what teaches it, not me, my young padawan!:thumbs:

    Children of God

    That just proves all living things are Christ children,but as Christ tells us If you disown me I will disown you. It is the devil who is the murderer from the beginning. Trying to get the children of God to follow him in the pit to be disowned by God and following their new father who sown such evil in them that Romans 1:25
    They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

    Deuteronomy 32
    1 Listen, you heavens, and I will speak;
    hear, you earth, the words of my mouth.
    2 Let my teaching fall like rain
    and my words descend like dew,
    like showers on new grass,
    like abundant rain on tender plants.

    3 I will proclaim the name of the LORD.
    Oh, praise the greatness of our God!
    4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
    and all his ways are just.
    A faithful God who does no wrong,
    upright and just is he.

    5 They are corrupt and not his children;
    to their shame they are a warped and crooked generation.
    6 Is this the way you repay the LORD,
    you foolish and unwise people?
    Is he not your Father, your Creator,[Or Father, who bought you]
    who made you and formed you?

    Colossians 1:
    The Supremacy of the Son of God
    15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
    21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of[Or minds, as shown by] your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

    We all were by being created by Him through Him and for Him, but when we turned to satan and followed him then he became our father. He has chosen Israel to be His children and cut them out for unbelief. When we stop following Satan and follow Him and believe in Him we return back to His favor. In the end this is the truth.


    John 1:12
    Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

    1 Peter 1:23
    For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.

    1 John 3:10
    This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister.

    Is not the creator the Father of all living things?

    Can you show me a verse that says that God is everyone's father? The verses you posted show that those who are saved are God's children - but not the world. I don't see any evidence that God is everyone's father. Yes, He is their Creator but not once does He call himself "Father" to those outside of salvation.

    Those who believe in His name trust in Jesus are given the right to be children of God. It is Jesus that will save us, trust in Him and you will not be put to shame, or disappointed praise be to Jesus.

    Right - so it is only those who trust in Jesus who are children of God. So the whole world is not God's children, are they?

    God created us, this is how I see all people is His and He is the Father of all, until we followed the murderer from the beginning and believed him over God.

    Jesus came into His own, they belonged to Him, but they received Him not.

    So as Jesus say's that if you disown me, I will disown you.

    They were is Children, but was disowned, cut out for unbelief. We who are not Jews are also created by Him. Satan is not a creator, the only way he is a father is through deception and lies, and is a murderer. We are included with the believing Jews when we heard the Gospel of our salvation having believed.

    Not necessarily. If this was speaking of the Jews only, then only Jews could be children of God.

    "He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" John 1:11,12

    The first part was about Jews. They didn't not receive him. But anyone(out of all people) that does receive him, they become the right be become the sons of God.

    The greatest deception is to believe everything doesn't belong to Him.

    What isn't is that He has the right to do as He pleases with them, To disown them or receive them the way He wants to
