John Kerry & the Bible

Over the last few months I've heard something come out of John Kerry's mouth that really bothers me. He has said that everyone is a child of God.

Get that - "Everyone is a child of God."

That is not true according to the Bible. And it amazes me that someone who was raised in the Church, was an altar boy and claims to be a Christian doesn't know a very basic fact about what the Scripture teaches.

Nowhere in Scripture does it ever say that everyone is a child of God. What it says is that we are all a creation of God. Being a creation and being a child are two entirely different things.

In fact, John 1:12 says, "But as many as received Him (meaning Jesus Christ) to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name."

Do you see how we have to receive Christ in order to become His children?

You do not have to do anything to be God's creation. You have no control over that. But you do have control over whether or not you become a child of God.

So are you a child of God or just His creation - Or Both?
