Man is not Divine

One of the most dangerous misconceptions is the belief that the Almighty is within man. This is a falsehood, for the Almighty can never be within man. Man is “spirit”, he is not Divinity. Here is a simple picture of the concept:

Spirit can only be filled with the transformed power from the Almighty, just like the body can only be filled with the cooled-off heat from the Sun; but we can never host the Almighty within, just like the body can never host the Sun. Furthermore, the energy from the Creator is not the Creator, the same way the heat from the Sun is not the Sun. Absorbing energy from the Almighty does not mean we are the Source that can produce this energy, the same way absorbing heat from the Sun does not make the body capable of producing the Sun’s heat. Consequently, a human being telling you the Almighty is within him is like someone saying the Sun is within his body; it is ignorance, presumption, and even vanity that fashions an impossible falsehood solely to elevate oneself. Man is a creature, not a Creator. Thus, the Almighty can never be within man, for man has no Divinity within him. Man is spirit, human spirit. We should content ourselves with that and just be grateful to be created.
