Only so divine

Christ’s chosen successor wrote …

He [Christ] has granted to us … you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.

As he promised, when he quoted an old Jewish song …

I said, “You are gods, And all of you are sons of the Most High.”

Before he came …

the race of man was perishing; the rational man made in God’s image was disappearing, and the handiwork of God was in process of dissolution

but after …

we might be made (God) gods

Careful though. Don’t get ahead of yourself. Still God is separate, distinct …

Wherefore He [Christ] is very God, existing one in essence with the very Father; while other beings, to whom He said, I said ye are Gods, had this grace from the Father, only by participation of the Word [Christ].

You can only be somewhat divine. God raises but only so far.

    I totally agree, liivng above reproach is an important aspect in the lives of christians, however: who says that van wasn’t driven by 2 missionaries determined to make a change. Jesus sat with sinners and cared more about the impact of his ministry than the status of his reputation. The world sees things and only takes one single-minded thought on it, but it is our job as philosophers to inspect every angle for a another possible solution to what we see. ~ AlexanderB.

    From an environmentall stand-point elerictc cars have no cons. They are zero emission vehicles that do nothing bad for the environment.Economically, they are cheap and also have no disadvantages.All this is good but there are cons that are unrelated to the two topics you mentioned.THE CONS: You have to charge you car so once the battery is dead you have to wait a long time and as with any other battery operated device, the battery life decreases over time. The cars are also relatively weak compared to gasoline or hybrid cars; they can have problems in hilly areas. They also have to be small because a battery does not put out as much power as a normal car, consequently making them very unsafe in the event of an accident. Lastly, you can’t travel with these cars because there are very few places that have elerictc charging stations.I hope this helps!
