Sons or Slaves?

  Muslims proudly proclaim themselves to be "the slaves of Allah" while their book calls the Bible teaching of sonship through Christ a terrible sin against the god of Muhammad.
  What Muslims do not know is that this is more proof that the god of Muhammad is not the loving and compassionate Father God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Allah is not the Yahweh God Who adopts us as His spiritual children when we accept His free gift of eternal life through the atoning work of His Son, Jesus.
  The Apostle Yochanan, a Jewish follower of Jesus who is better known to us as John, writes:

  12 But to all who did receive Him,
       He gave them the right to be children of God,
       to those who believe in His name,
  13 who were born,
       not of blood,
       or of the will of the flesh,
       or of the will of man,
       but of God.

       John 1
  While Satan makes slaves of his followers, Yahweh makes sons and daughters out of those who choose to follow Yeshua the Messiah.
  And since Muslims keep asking Christians where the Trinity is taught in a Bible written by Jews (with the possible exception of Luke), here is more from that passage. Italics are mine for the benefit of those Muslims:

  14 All those led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons. 

  15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father!” 

  16 The Spirit Himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children, 

  17 and if children, also heirs—heirs of God and coheirs with Christ—seeing that we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.
Romans 8

  Why follow a god who will never see you as nothing more than his slave? 
  Worse still... why reject Yahweh the Father Whose love is most clearly expressed in the self-sacrifice of the Son?

  Listen to the words Yahweh spoke through the prophet Jeremiah to His many times hardhearted people, the Israelites: 

  19 I thought: How I long to make you My sons
      and give you a desirable land,
      the most beautiful inheritance of all the nations.
      I thought: You will call Me, my Father,
      and never turn away from Me. 
      Jeremiah 3

  If you will stop hardening your heart, you can become His son or daughter today. All you need to do is ask!

Jesus is Lord!
