If we are not >>>ALL<<< God's "children", then how in the hell did we >>>ALL<<< get here?I hear this statement all the time ..
"well .. ya know .. I mean .. after all ..
no matter who we are and where we come from ..
when its all said and done ... we are ALL God's children."
Now .. I'm not sure where this statement derives from .. but it has no Biblical basis in fact .... I hope this thread will find its self void of all the minnie minds who simply look for places they can park their anger and angst aginst those who simply would like to display God's truth ( according to His Word / the Bible)... If you would like to participate in this thread .. please clarify this Biblical principle by placing additional scriptures that hold this truth consistant .. if you dis-agree .. please display the scriptural backing for your position .... I will start with one of my favorite verses in the New Covenant ...
John 01:09 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world .. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him .. He came to that which was his own ( the Jews ), but his own did not receive him .. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God .. children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.
And as much as I hate to quote from your stupid book, just so you cannot weasel out from this obvious fact, that the real God created >>>ALL<<< souls:
And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?
Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
Have we not all one father? Hath not one God created us?...
And "its self", LMFAO.
