Thoise who do what God says are children of God by adoption. Its in Hebrews 12 and the first letter of John. Anyone who doesnt do what God says is a son of evil. Son of sin. Its also in the first letter of Jhn. The first letter of John is what I like to call the christian s manual. And the first chapter of Romans plus the fifth chapter of Galatians mention what s right and wrong. Gby
Obedience comes through faith. We all sin, but of course, God sent Jesus because we sin & we will keep sinning. Remember what Paul said, "wretched man I am, I do that which I hate & struggle to do that which I desire to do". Christ is a forgiving saviour. Keep near to God, don't stop praying & ask for help always. This person is one of God. We try & try & try never ceasing to fight for righteousness. A child of Satan is hateful, hurtful, nasty, unloving, & thrives on the pain of others. Most people will not fall into this category.
The Bible indicates that these people can be distinguished by their personality traits. Notice what it says about the two types of people at Galatians 5:19-23, “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, and they are fornication, uncleanness, loose conduct, idolatry, practice of spiritism, enmities, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, contentions, divisions, sects, envies, drunken bouts, revelries, and things like these. As to these things I am forewarning you, the same way as I did forewarn you, that those who practice such things will not inherit God’s kingdom.
On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
