I found this video on youtube by an athiest, it surprises me that he might be right.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EwAEfOHlLM
in a way he proves Theosis, but the rest of his videos are «anti-christian».
So basically Theosis is that we become like God
and that we become partakers of the divine nature?
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
1Jn 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. (this verse basically says that we become like God no?)
What's it called where Man tries to be God himself? apotheos?
rather than being a partaker of his divine nature (which would be theosis right?)?
