I used to think I was a Christian because my family was and I was raised in a Baptist household. I thought everybody was a Christian because everybody went to church back then. But, when I was 46 years old, I was born again and WOW, what a difference Jesus made in my life.! I've continued to grow and understand more and am constantly amazed by God and His Word. It's weird to me that it took all these years to finally receive His gift of grace and love. To God be all the glory! Amen!
Not only should we love ourselves because God first loved us, and He deems us...
Does this mean that there are some unbelievers who are children of the devil...
44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name...
Philippians 2:9 - 11
9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name. 10 So that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.
For example, putting thoughts in our heads.
