i dont think i am God nor will ever be. not even close to being the Creator. i think it is possible to strive to be more like God.
i remember when Jesus said he was Son of God & the jews took that as meaning God Himself. so they saw it as blaspheme & sought to kill him. after that Jesus says something like- know ye not that ye are gods.
i do not view that in the same light with buddha & new age doctrines where everything is 'self' - conscience, ego & super ego...there is way more to it.
i think what Jesus was doing was, trying to point out the spirit within us is that thing that makes us like God as in (gods- little g), because like man, God is a spirit.
now, i dont think God turned into a man, but i respect all of those who do & i dont see any man turning into God...BUT i see Jesus is- AS God. he (Jesus) is the only man i view that way because God gave Him the position of authority & power. & i know in another place it speaks of us seeing him as he is. in another place it speaks of us being like Him (we shall behold Him) though i see this as future tense in the resurrection & only in glimpses & microscopic abilities, through a glass darkly now.
so, even Jesus gave the glory back to God when he said- i of mine own self do nothing but it was the father in him that does the works. (paraphrased)
i would say it is possible to be 'LIKE' God, if we try to become more like Jesus. Jesus is the only one who could claim being equal with God & i see Jesus as God in purpose & image & many other things-i dont see any of us being able to do that in that degree & expectation.
i would say we are like God according to attributes & that we are created in His image & that we are a part of God when we become filled with the Holy Ghost & that makes us a real child of God or you could say offspring in the spiritual sense.
"Greater things than this shall you do, for I go to make intercession for you."
"That where I am ye may be also..."
i see us all having the potential in spirit to manifest such in the flesh, but we are not so willing & always able because the flesh is weak & gets in the way. though it is certainly possible to be in heavenly places
while in the flesh- there is no doubt about that.
