You are gods.

thunor: Me and GoddessUbasti both have nicksi that are sinful. False gods. But Thunor (Thor) is completely dead, so I don't know if it's a sin.
Daniel: I don't think a nick is sinful per-se. And the Bible does say we are all gods.
thunor: :o No it doesn't. Surely not.
Daniel: Psalm 82:

6 I said, “You are gods,
And all of you are children of the Most High.

ljrbot: Psalms 82:6 -- For they have contrived with one consent: they have made a covenant together against thee,
Daniel: Weird bot.
^Peter^: Psa_82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
Daniel: John 10:

34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods” ’?ii

thunor: You have taken that out of context.
ljrbot: John 10:34 -- Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I said, you are gods?
Daniel: Oh then Christ also took it out of context?
^Peter^: Daniel, the bot has a different chapter section especially in psalms, and other OT stuff.
thunor: I am not a god though, I can't create universes as far as I know.
^Peter^: Thunor, you are a god, not God.
GoddessUbasti: What? What do you mean, guys. I think people take it out of context. Wait. I know they do. "Gods" there means people in authority positions likes judges, kings, etc. Please research a passage thoroughly before assuming the Bible is suddenly calling anyone actual gods.
Daniel: And yet Christ used it in the same context as I have said.
thunor: A god can create a universe.
Daniel: False gods can't. Or more importantly, false gods cannot save you from eternal destruction.

There was a lot of confusion and overlapping conversation happening around this part of the log. I chopped it off where the topic changed, but there was a little bit in the middle that I want to address.

Daniel: I'm in all sorts of "christian" chats and forums all day. I have a blog where I publish the interesting interactions.
GoddessUbasti: Daniel, you mean where you don't show all context and post that so people think you're hittin em out of the park?

This accusation that I am misrepresenting things on my blog. This isn't true, and if you have proof to the contrary, you are welcome to post it as a comment. The discussions I publish have no altered meaning or conclusion. And it hardly looks like I've "hit" anything "out of the park." Usually the response I get from readers is that I have gotten it all wrong.

To be continued...

  1. "Nicknames." aka handles aka usernames.

  2. Darwin: It would have been good to finish Joshua's quote, because it shows He confirms the statement.

    John 10:

    35 If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), 36 do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?

    By the way, there's no distinction in either the Hebrew or Greek between "gods" or "Gods." That's the decision of the translators. They are both the same word, Elohiym (Gods in Psalm 82:6) and theoi. (John 10:34)

    Psalm 82:7 is also good to include in such a discussion. "But you shall die like men."
