In Children’s church yesterday, Lee asked whether a person who is not saved is an enemy of God. This really bothered one of the children (who to my knowledge, has not made a profession of faith).
The thought occurred to me that a child who knows he is not saved, understands salvation, might not really consider himself God’s enemy.
Some might argue that a child of saved parents (a covenant child) is not an enemy of God, ever. Is a baby an enemy of God?
Then I wondered what Scriptures might be relevant. I’m drawing a blank, so maybe the question isn’t a valid one anyway. This is the only one I can find with a quick word search. I’ll have to do a bigger search.
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. James 4:4
