My point is that while we go out of our way to expose info that is more than obvious to any natural mind; God has gone out of His way to declare that we have been made the very thing the natural mind considers blasphemously impossible! Why do you think God would have persisted with that sort of revelation to those who wrote the letters about the good news? Just take a quick read through the account of John. If you take what Jesus said to be truth, then he made it very clear that the things that are true about Jesus are also true about those who have received him. I dare you to read Paul's writings and not see it; he was a crazy man for the truth! One of his favorite expressions was to say that believers are "in Christ".
This is not blasphemy. There is no suggestion that God has created any new deities, but He HAS made us SHARERS of HIS divine nature (yeah, Peter believed it, too! 2 Peter 1:4). Don't you get it? An entirely new thing happened when God invaded human history and became a man! He joined the creation forevermore with the creator! Then he killed the old creation when he died and rose as the head of the new creation. We truly are new creations, and Christ is the substance, the core, the life of our new identity!
And the deceiver has whispered in your ear. It is the same thing he said to Jesus. “If you are the son of God then let's see some proof!”
