The Children of Your Father Who Is in Heaven

In 3 Nephi 11 the congregants at Bountiful were told they had to become as little children in order to inherit the kingdom of God and build upon the rock.

Now here at the end of the first room of the ordinance, just before they are pronounced shalems, they are taught that they become children of their Father in heaven by loving their enemies.  Again we see (as in Alma 6 and Job 38) that the children of God was a temple concept, and something one could become.
