Children of God

For we are als0 his offspring.
Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
Acts 17: 28-29
See also: Romans 8:16

"What do we really mean when we sing or say, "I am a child of God"?.... we human beings are souls; that is dual beings, and dual means two. .....two parts. A human soul, each of us, is composed of two parts, or two bodies -- a spirit body and a physical body. it is the Lord himself who said that "the spirit and the body are the soul of man." Thus, it is our spirits, not our physical bodies, that were 'begotten' of God."
(Marion G. Romney, "We Are Children of God," Ensign Magazine, Sept. 1984 p. 3)
