Martin Collins, acknowledging that the Feast of Tabernacles pictures Jesus Christ's role as King of kings, points out that Jesus Christ is still under the authority of God the Father, the Father of all of us. Paul uses many metaphors to illustrate our relationship to God the Father: citizens of the Kingdom, household, and …
It is impossible to be a Christian without being a child of God. When we are in God's family, we have distinct privileges.
Our welfare programs have scriptural principles as their general inspiration, but they have been abused, encouraging dependency which God never intended.
