    Just throwing this out there:

    If Jesus offers salvation, or if belief in him will save you - what exactly is it saving your from?

    God?

    If we are all God's children, what's so damned special about Jesus?

    Sin. Satan believes in Jesus, so salvation is not just a "belief in him".

    All are not God's children, just those who accept Jesus as their Savior.

    No argument from me about us being made in the image of Him.

    Can I assume you accept the Holy Bible as the Word of God? Is so, read the words of Jesus in John 8:42-44 and the verses prior and after that.

    Likewise, I John 3:8-10 and I John 4:4-8

    More scripture on this subject can be found in the Holy Bible.

    The Bible is clear that all people are GodÂ’s creation (Colossians 1:16), but that only those who are born again are children of God (John 1:12; John 11:52; Romans 8:16; 1 John 3:1-10).
