MISCELLANEOUS PAPERS.

ARE ALL THE CHILDREN OF GOD?*

No text shows the affirmative.  On the other hand:
   I.  It is distinctly stated that some are not the children of God.  “They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God” (Rom. ix. 8).  “In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil; whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother” (I John iii. 10; John viii. 41, 42, 44).

*Written after F.R.H.’s return from church, where all the congregation were addressed as being the children of God.
