I often mention that many New Testament scriptures are ignored or spiritualized so they have their meaning changed. Here is one example. What can you walk up to right now and touch that will have God not receive you and not be a Father unto you?
2 Corinthians 6:17b-18 “touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
There is an answer. Scripture defines its own terms. The answer is in scripture.
