Consider this example. There is the story about Abraham Lincoln who, upon realizing a store clerk had given him a bit too much in change, walked several miles out of his way to return the money. It's part of his "Honest Abe" reputation. So, suppose I decide to follow his example - adopt his standard of honesty. Does that make me Abraham Lincoln? Or President of the U.S.? No.
So, yes, God (actually Christ) set an example. But following that example does not make us a god.
So humor me. Give me an explanation as to why you think the Bible promotes such an idea - while at the same time saying such an idea is wrong.
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 mind that in this instance, he refers to a likeness of the knowing of good and evil.
Honestly, I don't believe in all this bible stuff, as I see it as fiction, and find it hard to comment on a fiction, because a fiction is born of a particular authors mind, in which he can write anything he wants, and therefore it is always absolutely true, within that piece of fiction, as it is a world of his making. So how can it possibly be argued by someone standing in the realm of reality, as the realm or reality has no bearing on a fictitious world that is born and only exists in the mind of it's author. Only the author can argue the truths in his work of fiction. Please keep in mind that the bible is not gods words, and that in fact it contains only the words of man, as he reports of his god, and that their are many different versions of report.
