Yes, I should have been more specific.
I'm asking about the phrase, with lower case, "child of God," as in
I'm a sophomore, baptized, and a child of God.
(on TCT, one of the weekly preachers, in soliciting for pledges, goes,
"Child of God, Listen to me. God has a plan for you. He wants you
to be debt free. Child of God, do you hear me?"
How widespread? Who is using it? Who is being distinguished from whom?
"God's children" isn't turning up in the same places, same conversations,
(It's in some of my creative writing student's work - - "Susan had long
blond hair, a blue Pontiac, and was a child of God". It's not just being
used in private.)
