No Francis, We Are Not All Children of God - Demonstrating a Favorite Modernist Anti-Catholic Rhetorical Trick

One of the most prevalent modernist rhetorical tricks, especially visible since Vatican II, is to call each and every human being a "child of God."
Francis did this again today:

The worst sinners, the wickedest people, the most corrupt leaders, they are children of God, and Jesus feels this and intercedes for everyone.

Compare that with this:

He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, he gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in his name. (St. John 1:14)


Francis words are 100% diametrically opposed to Catholic teaching. It fundamentally disregards the theology behind original sin, the sacraments (especially baptism) and the very words of Christ himself.

We are not all children of God. If we listen to God and follow his commandments we are children of God; if we follow our own sinful inclinations and natures we are children of the devil. This is perfectly clear in Sacred Scripture (see below). Notice how every single time the phrase of concept of children of God is used it relates to ether obedience or having died in a state of grace. It is never used to describe people doing evil; for those people scripture always uses "children of darkness" or something similar.

The modernists do this because it allows them to disregard the necessity of conversion to the Catholic Faith.

Neither can they die any more: for they are equal to the angels, and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. - 
[St. Luke 20:36]

And I say to you that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven: But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
[Matthew 8:11-12]

For you are all the children of God by Faith, in Christ Jesus.
[Galatians 3:26]

For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
[Romans 8:14]

And every spirit that dissolveth Jesus, is not of God: and this is Antichrist, of whom you have heard that he cometh, and he is now already in the world. You are of God, little children, and have overcome him.
[1 John 4:3-4]

For you are all the children of God by faith, in Christ Jesus.
[Galatians 3:26]

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil. Whosoever is not just, is not of God, nor he that loveth not his brother.
[1 John 3:10]

In this we know that we love the children of God: when we love God, and keep his commandments.
[1 John 5:2]

For which things the wrath of God cometh upon the children of unbelief,
[Colossians 3:6]
