My response: "Well, we're all God's creatures but we're not all God's children."
Their question: "How can you say that? Didn't he make us all?"
My response: "I know what the Word says..." and so I read this to them...
1st John 2: 28–29
28 And now, dear children, remain in fellowship with Christ so that when he returns, you will be full of courage and not shrink back from him in shame.
29 Since we know that Christ is righteous, we also know that all who do what is right are God’s children.
Their question: "What is right? No one does what is right all of the time."
My response: "Are you in fellowship with Christ today? That is what is right!"
