Explain These God Scriptures

In Psalm 82:6 it says we are gods (little 'g'). Again in John 10:34-35 says we are gods small 'g'. In John 17:21 and John 14:12 also back's this up. If we are the sons of God, I know were not Jesus but just inheritors of the devine nature right?

85 words does not provide enough space to properly discuss it. But the three reference do have this in common. In Each instance group of humans inflating their importance to act like little gods. It becomes more apperant in a modern language text I am using ESV. Psalm 82 is only 8 verses, The first reference in John should include 10:31-39 in the thought packet the next is 17:16-21
I am using a NT Commontary by William Barclay.

I enjoy these===Psalm 82-6- ---Because they had a commission from God, and were delegated and appointed by Him to be the conservators of the public peace. [God has put some of His honour upon them.] In John-- It is written I have said, ye are gods. If they were gods, much more am I.Jesus proved who He was by His works. He gives us power to do the same works. We are His inheritors [God's People] To receive that, we must grow up.

The definition of a god is simply "mighty one"
---1st_cliff on 3/8/07

1st cliff, that is not blasphemy. Blasphemy is desecration or ascribing evil to the Holy. Every child of God is like God, for we are born of him, that's truth, but we children of God are not worshipped- that alone is the Godhead's glory. Satan's sin was that he wanted to take over God's throne and be worshipped as God, and that i agree is blasphemy. We are commanded to worship God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, but no other entities.

Eloy;you have much to learn about scripture;Phil 2 in archaic English "thought it not robbery" is actually "did not think equality with God was something to be grasped" NIV It was Satan who said "you will be like Gods"Gen.2.5. Equality with God is blasphemy!
---1st_cliff on 6/14/05

Ann5758, Did you not read the scripture i just wrote on becoming born-again? The truth is that every born-again person IS Christlike. "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." Philippians 2:5-7.

Eloy, we will NEVER be equal with God. Only one Man has the right to that claim, and He's now sitting at the right hand of God.
---Ann5758 on 6/13/05

When we are born-again we become God's child, and equal with God: "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the children of God, to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:12,13. All power was given to Jesus, and he gives these same keys to the born-again. Please read Matthew 17:17-20; Mark 16:17-20; Luke 10:17-20; John 14:17-20 (note: all verses are the same numbers- must be God).
---Eloy on 6/13/05

Yes. In Christ, we are like one with God. If not for Christ, we could not be. If we were not in Christ, our inherited divine nature (which is through God's creation of us, and also the knowledge of the tree) would be more simular to what charactaristics/powers satan posseses...imperfect as it is... and it pleases satan. Thats why he doesnt want people to know that Jesus is the way to truly be like God would have us be.

In the beginning there was a disagreement between Lord God and Lucifer which caused a third of the angels to be cast down to earth. In the Garden of Eden, eating of the fruit made Adam and Eve like gods, knowing good and evil. They were banned from the tree of life. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the LIFE.
