Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

If God were your Father

If God were your Father, you would love Me... John 8:42

The hope of the pharisees was that they were descendents of Abraham John 8:33 which because of genealogy means that they came directly from Adam the Son of God and it was in this knowledge that they thought God to be their true Father. Little did they realise that the second Adam stood in front of them.

Jesus put a stop to this nonsense and false hope because when you love Him, God is your Father. Today is no different and it is so easy to lose focus on Jesus our Everlasting Father for to love him is to make God your Father.

Why then could the Pharisees not see this. It is clear from the account in John 8 that Jesus was speaking to them plainly with such remarks as "Yet you seek to kill me", "You are of your father the devil", "because you are not of God". This time His message was not a parable and his point was not watered down. The Jews took such offence that they labeled him a Samaritan with a demon.

The Pharisees were in the trap that we have all fell in and would be lost in if it were not for Jesus for He is the light and when we are born of God we come into this light and the Father is revealed to us.

"and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him." Luke 10:22
