An atheist is a person who has construed a god so uncaring or heinous
that he can't really be believed in, but then so have most religions.

Children of God
Updated: 07/09/2019

Christendom universally acknowledges that we as humans are children of God. What is left unstated at worst and nebulous at best is that as Christians we are confined, constrained and destined to always being children, always subordinate and inferior, always needing instruction and direction, and supposedly always under parental supervision. What decent "parent" would ever want such a thing for their children?

Men are only the children of God if you ignore everything that distinguishes the child-parent relationship from that of an ocean liner captain and the fish in the sea.

Of course, what is of much greater concern is the way we are treated, or neglected, as the true case may be. What is wrong with this picture?

Once again the Gospel of John shows its superiority, because John's emphasis is not about how we ARE the children of God, but about us BECOMING such in a most literal, significant way, by UNDERSTANDING, through Jesus' life and message, the true character and purpose of God.

Could it be that UNTIL we BECOME children of God we will not be treated as such?

Christianity is so interminably conflated with "Judaism" as to be often referred to as Judeo-Christianity. For instance, here is what one intelligent and sensitive thinker has said in an otherwise profound article:

...Judaism has always preferred the celebration and sanctification of this life in this world to eschatological promises. My guess is that 21st-century Christian thought will move back toward its father and become increasingly Judaized, less focused on death and the afterlife and more on life here today... - David Gelernter, "The Closing of the Scientific Mind."

Yet, this is so NOT valid or true in the mind and message of the J-person. The Gospels of John and Thomas pay no deference to Judaism being the foundation for Christianity, BECAUSE in their mind the truth and true religion does NOT have that as its foundation. Yet, except for Thomas, that foundation was never dismissed by the other disciples, which is why we have Judeo-Christianity today.
