Matthew 15.12-13 – Being born of God
Posted: 7 July 2010 in Matthew

Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

This is just a passing thought. Being born of God as a prerequisite for salvation is an idea normally associated with the Gospel of John. Here, however, is the same idea. The metaphor is different – the necessity of our being a plant which God has cultivated (brought into existence) – but the meaning is the same.
