We're all one really. We just need to see it.
No, we are not all one. Not do all men belong to the same god either according to scripture.
Only those that walk in what Jesus said in John 17:21-26. Meaning those that are one with Jesus Father Marge.
The rest have another father according to what Jesus said in John 8:42-47.
Man was made in the likeness and image of God in the beginning, their being one with Father. Until they rebelled against God and partook of the Tree they were specifically told not to partake of. Yet doing it anyway, simply because of it looking good to them. Some continuing to do the same thing today. That determining who their spiritual father is according to what is written in John 8:42-51. Concerning the death written about there in verse 51 has to be the second death also told about in Rev. 20:14-15. As our bodies will return to the dust, which is why it also says we will receive a new one according to the word spoken from the Lord in Gen. 3:19. Not only the first Adam either, but all of us that are reproduced after Him thereafter as a result of being born in sin too, this will apply to. And this be true as I see it anyway, because once God speaks something, it is law then. Until He says otherwise. Which is how we are also born again, entering into the kingdom Jesus Christ brought for us to enter into via the cross too. What that kingdom is, being revealed in Rm. 14:17.
So not all men serve the same God after all, according to those scriptures. Whether some would like to think so Marge or not. Nor is man born in the image of God anymore either according to what is written here in Rm. 8:29, according to that scripture. Do a study on the phrase image. We are to be changed to be in the likeness of Christ according to what it says in John 2:6. Meaning both was lost when sin began within man. Jesus Christ being the only way for this to be restored at all. And unless we are born again, and enter into the kingdom of God also, Jesus told Nicodemus about in John chapter 3 can this image and likeness even begin to be restored unto men Marge. Many following their own way believing this will happen, when no it will not. At least according to scripture it will not. We quote scripture so often, not having a clue as to very often understanding what it is saying after all. And very often the ones we do not like, we ignore as well, in order to do the same thing that Adam and Eve did in the beginning themselves. continuing to partake of the wrong tree rather than the right one to this day. Lieing to ourselves that surely we shall not die just as the first two did also. Thus doing despite, and spitting on the very blood soaked cross just as many did on that day that jesus did die on it. Often because of having listened to the teachings that have come forth from the false apostles, prophets and teachers that have brought forth lies instead of the truth. Which we were warned about over and over again not to do so in scripture. thus either being deceived such as Eve was apparently, or just plain doing the same thing that Adam did and blatantly doing what we knew not to do in the first place. Because of now following flesh in place of the Spirit. Thus few finding the way after all, just as jesus said in Mt. 7:14
And behold, I come quickly: and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA. THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE FIRST AND THE LAST. (Rev. 22:12-13)
