Adam is called a son of God in the New Testament.

David is the voice of reason.

"If BMZ wants to beget a new word it's OK with me!" 

 Wait till George, Patty and Annie have read you, David. I am sure all of them will agree that we have to beget a new word for "begotten".

Annie,

From you: "Adam is called a son of God in the New Testament."

Have you replied to David about this:"Which Bible are you using?"

What did David say?  I use lots of translations of the Bible.

I deleted the question BMZ.  I tried to query the reference but my search parameters were typo'd.  It is from Luke 3:38

The phrase "children of God" pops up in different places though, usually in reference to Christians or perhaps any of the people of the book.  It will take a while to develop an exegesis comparing those two terms.

Just a quickie:  I admit I am flying in at the last minute, but up to page 5, no-one has challenged the original assertion that such as Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson were "Christians".  They seem to have been lumped under "Protestants" (as opposed to Catholics)and that's that.  Believe me, outside of the Bible Thumping South, and the Southern Baptist self-righteousness, most of the world looks upon these people as sad representatives of Jesus.

Let's get our terms straight.

Christianity has always been a communal religion. 

Matthew 18:20
For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them.

In early Christianity even individual prayer was not encouraged.  One had to pray in commune with other Christians.  Falwell, Robertson and others like them are noted for not submitting to any eccleiastical authority.  They have their own individualized version of Christianity, which is quite unlike the true denominations.

Falwell and Robertson are Christians, but IMHO their individuality is not scripturally sound.  A single person cannot represent the body of Christ.
