Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Then I guess that you cannot relate to the A & E myth, where as archetypes of all humans, they did.

From a biblical point of view, if you are not trying to be a slave to God's ways, then you are trying to follow Satan.

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Mankind was not created by some God. Nature is our mother, so to speak, along with evolution. Nature also created, inadvertently of course, what most would call God and I call the Godhead, just to differentiate. It is a fact that man created God and therefore it could be argued that man could not h...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

As a Gnostic Christian, I can appreciate that quote as it points to the God within all of us. I have no argument with what you wrote and basically agree. The issue is the morality or desirability of becoming as God. Care to opine? DL... to begin with, "becoming as God" is not possible. However to b...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

All that is said of God is speculation. Some say speculative nonsense. We are talking of bible God, who likely never existed, and the morals that are given him by those who wrote the myth. Regards DL You obviously are clueless in comprehending the age-old concept of "god" (which is very common), us...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

[ So you're asking if becoming godlike, as to his morals, is moral or immoral? Yes. Regards DL Who here knows God enough to answer that question...? Not me. The minute before my death, perhaps i would bother to try... You mean the moment after your death. Yes. Nothing has been said of God or about ...

What did I deny? What did I fail to correct?
Let's restart.

Is becoming like God, in a moral sense way, good or evil?

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

You have questioned and judged God as good yet would deny others from questioning and judging if they do not happen to agree with your view of good. This is starting to sound bitter. I did not mean to judge you, but it can be a fine line between pointing out error and being judgemental. The pot may...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Do you want your children to be less than yourself or do you want them to be as good as you are and in fact be better than what you are? It's not a valid comparison. Some day my children will supplant me. I will never supplant God. Have you forgotten that you are a God work in progress my friend? N...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

I'm not sure as to all the in's and out's of your two's arguments, but GIA's original post said "like GOD" not "a God." So as far as some aspects go, I could be like Abraham Lincoln, or anyone else for that matter, as any particular attribute is not exclusive to any particular individual. Keep in m...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

You read it as I do and have chosen to see it the Jewish way. Good thinking.
That being the case, you might understand what I am trying to say here--------
Looking forward to your thoughts.

God loves the evil ones more than the good because he is the

God loves the evil ones more than the good because he is the greatest sinner. This love of sinners is the hinge pin on which his benevolent qualities depend and without evil and sin, God could never expressed his benevolence and we would never know of God’s mercy, forgiveness, compassion and all his...
