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 ...

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...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

[ DL Wow, now you've got my head spinning. So am I to understand that I'm supposed to judge the fictitious words of a book against other fictitious words in the book, when I have absolutely no belief in any of these words in the book, so as to come up with something non fictitious, or should my sol...

John 15:7
Neither your rhetoric nor the verse you quoted seems to support your position. You'll need to be a bit more verbose - explain yourself.
Answer those questions and I will not need to explain anything.

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Mike You base your comments on the idea that we cannot reach God's level of thought and knowledge of good and evil yet the story itself tells us that we can. God's own words ---they have become as Gods, knowing good and evil. Can you prove that these are a Gods own words? I can understand your view...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

How can you be like God without knowing what he knows? The section of Genesis to which you refer (as well as other passages) makes it clear that it would be wrong to try to "be like God." Therefore, you are either confused or you are trying to demonstrate a contradiction in the Bible. I'm not sure ...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

If you are correct, then, in the myth, who wrote the tree of knowledge of good and evil? The way you phrased your question hints that there may be some misunderstandings here, but with that said, the answer would be that God created the tree. Why do you ask? Because of this. " You are assuming that...

Re: Is becoming like God good or evil?

Thanks for your response, Greatest. The idea of eternal progression, held by Mormons and Urantians and maybe other thinkers/believers: Not my view, but as good as any other religious view, being based on faith. Mainstream Christians think it's blasphemy to claim we can ever be like God -- they say ...
