Ephesians 4:6—“one God and Father of all … above all … through all … and in you all”

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all (Eph. 4:4-6).

This text is sometimes quoted in support of a “universal Fatherhood of God”—namely, that all creatures, elect and reprobate, including the demons, are “children” of God in one sense, though not in a “saving” sense.


Rev. Angus Stewart

[Source: Sermon: “One Body Animated by One Spirit” (Eph. 4:4-6)]

When it says “all” it doesn’t mean “all men absolutely.” It means all the saints in the “one body.”



More to come! (DV)
