God in man's image? - May 4th, 2012, 03:40 PM

Who came up with the concept that God has an ego and requires the worship of countless subordinate beings?

God.

Isaiah 45:23 --- I have sworn by myself, The word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, Every tongue shall swear.

Philippians 2:9 --- Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Philippians 2:10 -- That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Philippians 2:11 -- And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

That says nothing of eternal praise and the ego of God.

Now you and I could have a good back and forth about Paul. I do not dispute that his words were inspired but I do not worship Paul. He doesn't hold a candle to Jesus and often conflicts with Him. Should we go there?

Nu 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie;

neither the son of man, that he should repent:

But man needs to Repent and Change and Turn around and go the Right Way.

Satan has tempted mankind Long enough.

God wants to make Mankind into Spirit beings in His Kingdom

but Satan says that they are too easily corrupted and

would not make good candidates to Rule the Universe.

God has put forth the Challenge to all Mankind to Resist Evil

and Purify your Minds to qualify for IMMORTALITY.


Ro 2:7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing

seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life

1Co 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption,

and this mortal must put on immortality.

1Co 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

1Ti 6:16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

2Ti 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

De 10:14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORDíS thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.
1Ki 8:27 But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?
2Ch 2:6 But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?
2Ch 6:18 But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!
Ne 9:6 Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.





GOD HAS PROMISED US IMMORTALITY

There's a lot more eternal praise and ego in Revelation, true.

Oh, good choice. Moses at his best trying to explain reality to a bunch of uneducated ignorant slaves. In a way you have touched on what I was attempting to offer. God almighty needs nothing from His creations yet we impute an ego to God. I find that ridiculous.

No one came up with the idea that God has an ego that requires worship from subordinates.

God is worshipped by those who love and respect him as part of a relationship. That relationship is good for those who believe.

People need someone greater than themselves even if their ego's won't allow them to acknowledge it.





Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same.

Inspired? Conflict?





My New Years Resolution: 1 Peter 3:15
Omniscient without man's qualification. John 1:3 "Nothing"
Colossians 1:17 "Nothing" John 15:5 "Nothing"
Mighty, ALL mighty (omnipotent). Revelation 1:8
No possible limitation Isaiah 40:25 Joshua 24:15
Infinite (Omnipresent) Psalm 145:3 Hebrews 4:13

Is Calvinism okay? Yep

Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

1Co 13:11 ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. *************************************

Separation of church and State is not atheism "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

In the image of God. As God has absolute authority over His creation. God has given authority to humankind to be over the other creatures and the riches of the earth. This special privilege makes us more responsible to him for our actions.

Well first off its the other way around, Man is made in God's image; and secondly who says He requires or even desires our worship? (Psalms 40:6 KJV and 1 Samuel 15:22 KJV)

Have you ever considered that perhaps this is all for our benefit and not for His?
