>>>>Hint. Jesus said,--- to Jews, have ye forgotten that ye are Gods?
Technically its gods not Gods.
6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
They were going to stone Jesus.
And Jesus refers to the old saying.
33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;
36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
>>>>I could be wrong but you need to listen to someone in the now. He is a Christian but I see him more as a Gnostic Christian like myself.
Gnostic seems OK DL, and I mostly agree with it, but our salvation is not of our wisdom of God, but salvation is a gift that we cannot achieve.
The mechanics of it works like this....
21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
The power of being raised immortal/quickened is not in our hands or minds.
Its decided by the Father/God and Son/Jesus who will be quickened and receive salvation.
Quickening or Born Again or Salvation refer to the same proses but technically are different views of the same event.
Quicken= Is for those who understand mechanical views.
Born Again= Birth and Body view for those who understand the body.
Salvation= Hope of Salvation is for inspiring those who only have hope.
This is really quite fascinating for me DL, your making me think
