We are gods?

The idea that we humans are gods is rampant these days. According to Marianne Williamsons’ book “A Course in Miracles” and any number of other New Age prophets, like Donald Neal Walsh, WE ARE GODS. We just happen to have forgotten we are divine. We have the power of creation in us and so on.

I will let God answer this hogwash:

And which of you by being anxious can add a cubit unto the measure of his life? ” – Jesus Christ (Luke 12:25 ASV)

and

Tell us what is to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods; do good, or do harm, that we may be dismayed and terrified. Behold, you are nothing, and your work is less than nothing; an abomination is he who chooses you.” (Isaiah 41:23-24 ESV)

Take any one of these teachers, place them in the middleof the Mojave desert without any water, clothing or food, and let’s see them survive. They can’t! We are not self-sufficient folks! Everything we need to live comes from OUTSIDE our bodies. That means everything we receive is a gift from God who created it in the first place.

We own nothing in this world; we only borrow things for the short time we are here on this earth. We create nothing. We only use what is created to make things that will not last.

    I recall Ken Copeland making this comment too – not sure if you have ever read much on him and his teaching – its shocking to say the least. I think he follows much of Ken Hagin’s teachings and sad but true is the fact that millions are buying this garbage…
