The Lost Son

If the Father represents God, and the good son represents unregenerate good people,(like the Pharisees) and the bad son represents unregenerate bad people,(like the tax collectors) and only the people of God are sons of the Father, how does this story of the Lost Son make any sense whatsoever?

We start off the story with one father and two unsaved sons, and we end up with one father, one saved son, and one unsaved son.

And even though the so called good son is still unregenerate at the end of the story, the father makes it clear that he is still a son.

How does all of this fit if only the people of God can be considered sons.

Does this story mean that everyone is a son of God?
