    when problem comes to my life, i always rely on God to solve it.
    i always give thanks to what God had given for me, no matter its good or bad.

    Sometimes i complaining about something and blaming to God, soo..
    I also always ask for the forgiveness of sins from God

    ...maybe those are reasons why i'm a real child of God

    If you are determining this through the Bible, it is a fallacy to say we are all "Children of God." If you read John 1 you will see that "To all who believed Him (Jesus) to all who believed on His name, he gave the RIGHT to be called the children of God." Follow that up with John 8:44 where Jesus clearly states a seperation between those who follow Him and those who dont. The ones who dont are called the Devils children! harsh, huh? BUT the crowd reacted the way alot of you would... they quit following Him.
    We ARE created in Gods image. He DOES love us all. Enough to die for us! But unless we choose to be adopted into Gods family... we aren't in it!!

      Yes - but the bible is war-mongering garbage and therefore not worth listening to. You are not the child of god to the exclusion of others.

      Sorry - We evolved and were NOT created in your invisible super being's image, He did not lol this is a funny one - die for us - lol and you are worm food along with the rest of us. sad

      You cannot "choose" to be adopted and those who do not choose are excluded. wink

      Where do you get this rubbish? Oh yes - misinterpreting a bronze age book....

    It is difficult to give a clear definition of what a Christian is?  I think that this definition would have to be kept short and to the point.
        Do you believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins and rose again, Do you follow his teachings as best as you can understand them.
        Do you have to go to a Church to be a Christian? I don't think so.
        Jesus said that he was the way the truth and the light.  That you can not get to the Father but through him.
        First and foremost....
                  JESUS IS THE WORD OF GOD.
       When we substitute "THE WORD OF GOD" in place of Jesus (It would be saying the same thing) scripture does not sound quite as exclusive this way.
       The only way to get to the father is through the word of God
       The word of God is the light of this world.
       The Word of God died on the cross and rose again
    A new covenant was established.

    I am a child of my mother and father. The two human beings who made me and gave me life.

    I'm not a child of 'god'.

    A person is a child of God when he accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior. Salvation is a gift of God. It is not by our own merits that we are saved but because of his meritorious act on the cross and his resurrection that you and I have the hope of eternal life if we have received that free gift of salvation which he offers. And that's how we become a child of God.

    Basically asking Jesus to forgive your sins, accept Him as your Savior.
