What are human beings? Just lumps of meat? We are divine.

You also have God within you and can become one with God.


People, please discuss the above statements. Experiential said the above and i want to know if all christians believe the same.

Hi Mahdi.

If you want to quote me that’s fine but please do so in context. See the context provided where Jesus quoted Psalm 82.6

 

Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods' ? 

If he called them 'gods,' to whom the word of God came--and the Scripture cannot be broken, what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world?

Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, 'I am God's Son'? 

John 10:34 -36

Read on from John 10.36-

 

John 10:34 Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are "gods"? 

John 10:35 If he called them 'gods,' to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— 

 

John 10:36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, 'I am God's Son'?

so now, son of God=God

john 10:34 refers to psalm 82:6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”;
    you are all sons of the Most High.’.

so if son of God=God, how many Gods are there?

Why not read John verse 10 properly.
 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, 'I am God's Son'? 
John 10:36
 
There is only One God. One God with three aspects (only 3 that have been revealed to humanity at this stage anyway). God the Son is one of the aspects. It is God the Son that has been made human. We as human are only ‘like’ gods. Not God.
Once again - "begotten" means – single of its kind; only, unique.
