We are not gods, we are godly - @JaySmoke

Many religions and New Age philosophies promote this old lie that we are divine or can become gods. This desire to be a god shows up every time we try to control our circumstances, our future, and people around us. It's what led to the downfall of Satan--thinking he can be God. And the moment we start to think we are gods, we start to believe we can do all things by ourselves. But we can only do all things through Christ who strengthens us. (Phil 4:13 NKJV)

The truth is: You will never become God, or even a god. That prideful lie is Satan's oldest temptation. Satan promised Adam and Eve that if they followed his advice, "you shall be as gods." (Genesis 3:5 KJV)

God doesn't want you to become a god; he wants you to become godly - taking on his values, attitudes, and character. We are meant to "take on an entirely new way of life - a God-fashioned life, a life renewed from the inside and working itself into your conduct as God accurately reproduces his character in you." (Ephesians 4:2 MSG)

We are humans, flawed in every way. Corrupted by evil and our fleshly desires. God sent His son, Jesus Christ to be a conduit for our salvation. That by Him we may be saved. It's only through Christ that we can stand a chance of becoming anything close to God's original intent for our lives.

We become Christ-like when we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior not God-like.

Shalom 🙏🏾
