Children of God

 

To those who did accept Him and believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.”  John 1:12

 

All but one of the world’s religions are based on the teachings of their founders.  Buddhism is based on the teachings of Gautama Buddha.  Islam is based on the writings of Mohammed.  But Christianity is different.  It is not based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, but rather on who He was and what He did.  Salvation comes not from following His teachings (which is a good thing to do) but from accepting Him by faith.  That’s how you become a child of God.
