If Jesus is the son of God, why did Jesus tell us to pray with a prayer that begins with "OUR father in heaven, hallowed by thy name"? Our means
more than one. That would mean that Jesus is saying that all of us are children of God... (Luke 11:2-11:4)
Actually that is exactly what he was saying...
We are all children of God...
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
1 John 3
1Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because
it knew him not.
2Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for
we shall see him as he is.
1 And he said, "Whoever discovers the interpretation of these sayings will not taste death."
2 Jesus said, "Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will
marvel, and will reign over all. [And after they have reigned they will rest.]"
3 Jesus said, "If your leaders say to you, 'Look, the (Father's) kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say
to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is within you and it is outside you.
When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living Father
. But if you do not know
yourselves, then you live in poverty, and you are the poverty."
Does that answer your question?
