Classic Comment #1

Sometimes someone says something outlandish, and someone else puts their finger right on the problem. You can’t help but enjoy reading a comment like that. Here’s an exchange from Defending Contending:

Someone going by the name “Chatal” said,

HOW DARE YOU TELL PEOPLE, ALL ARE NOT CHILDREN OF GOD. BLASPHEMY, THIS SITE SHOULD BE TAKEN DOWN AND THE WORDS WRITEN ON THIS SHOULD NEVER BE READ BY ANYONE.”

And here’s the classic comment from The Pilgrim:

Dear Chatal:

Thank you for your opinion and your candidness regarding your dislike of freedom of speech.

I’m not sure what or who you were referring to as I don’t see anything in the original post about “children of God” so I’m assuming you were referring to someone’s comment (which I do not have time to read all of right now).

Your anger and displeasure are misdirected. You see, your issue is not with whoever said “all are not children of God” but it is with God Himself. So please take up your fight with Him after you have read His inspired Word.

Children of God are:

John 1:12 Those who receive Jesus

Romans 8:14, 16 Those led by the Spirit of God

Romans 9:8 Children of the promise, not children of the flesh

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 Believers, not unbelievers

1 John 2:29-3:2 Believers

1 John 3:9-10 Those who practice righteousness

Children of the Devil are:

Matthew 13:37-39 The tares are the sons of the evil one

John 8:38, 41-45 Those who reject Christ and His words

1 John 3:8, 10 Those who practice sin/do not practice righteousness
I hope this clears up your misconceptions.

Sincerely,
– The Pilgrim

    I am not sure if that is what the Bible says Tony.
