The fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man
Guide to Bible passages: John 1:12; 3; Matthew 5:21-25; Mark 12:29-31
All human beings were created by God. God is, therefore, the father of everybody. We are all his children. It does not matter which language we speak. It does not matter also whether we are Christian or Moslem. We should see ourselves as children of the same father. This makes us love one another and live in peace. Christians and Moslems should understand that their religions have the same origin. Christianity and Islam are based on the worship of God. The two religions regard Abraham as the person through whom we knew God. Both religions teach good morals and condemn sin. In both religions, people are encouraged to keep good relationship with God. Moslems teach that it is through the teachings of Mohammed that they can keep good relationship with God while Christians believe strongly that it is through Jesus that we know God better and keep good relationship with God.
How to conduct ourselves as good children of God through Christ John says that Jesus will give those who receive him and believe in his name, the power to become children of God. He explains that it does not mean children that are related by blood, flesh or by the power of man. It� is the children that are related by the spirit of God; in other words, the children that have the same spirit, the spirit of God.
Jesus explained this to Nicodemus that it is through the belief in him that we can keep good relationship with God and have hope for eternal life.
