Many today do not believe in God as a father. But God as a creator also has an hidden meaning of being the father of all creation.

God as the father has more specific meaning than just being the creator. Naturally, the son is a replica of the father. He looks like him and even takes after him.

It is only the humans, out of God’s creation that were made like himself. Others were not in his image or likeness. This makes only man, out of his creation, to be his son. Man took after him in all things. Like father like son, you will say.

But the fall of man from the glory and nature of God’s son caused him to lose his sonship of God. When Jesus came in the likeness and image of God we beheld the lost glory of man as son of God again in him.

Jesus now became the source of the new man that is created in the image and likeness of God. If any one is in Christ, he is a new creator, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new. 2Cor 5:17.

The new man in Christ is the son of God because he is created in the likeness and image of God. He takes after the father. Is that not LIKE FATHER LIKE SON?
