[B-Greek] AUTOU in Romans 8:9

Romans 8:9 ends with the phrase hOUTOS OUK ESTIN AUTOU.

The natural grammatical antecedant seems to be XRISTOU from earlier in the 
verse, yet the sense of Paul's argument makes me want to connect AUTOU to 
QEOU (I am disregarding PNEUMA, though it is a grammatical possibility).

What do you think? Do I have a leg to stand on in connecting AUTOU to QEOU?
