Whose your daddy?

They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. - John 8:39-44 (KJV)
Your father is determined and/or detected NOT by who does the most things for you or whose bloodline you are from, but who you act like.

The Pharisees said Abraham was their father, but Jesus countered that couldn't be true because they were not acting like Abraham.

They, then, said God was their father but Jesus countered that if that was true they would love him. He then told them who their real daddy was - the devil; and the acorn does not fall far from the tree.

All humans are not all children of God, we are children of the one we act like, and the only way to change fathers is by being born again (John 3:3)

So the question remains to be answered: Whose your daddy?
