Why do professing Christians that I

Dispute Over Whose Children Jesus’ Opponents Are
31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching,
you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will
set you free.”
33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves
of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”
34 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.
35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it
forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know that
you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me, because
you have no room for my word. 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the
Father’s presence, and you are doing what you have heard from your father.[a]”

come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. 43 Why is my
language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. 44 You
belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s
desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for
there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is
a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not
believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth,
why don’t you believe me? 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The
reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
