Kovacs responded, “If you just look at the natural world around us, you realize that everything reproduces. They have children or offspring after their own kind. I mean, the children of giraffes are giraffes. The children of cats are cats. And what are the children of God? You know people have to come to that conclusion: we’re not here for no good reason. The Bible calls us “the OFFSPRING of God.” (Acts 17:29) It uses the word offspring.
“God is having offspring. And countless times, you will see the phrase ‘children of God’ or ‘sons of God’ in the Bible. In fact, in the famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, ‘Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.’ Paul says in Romans 8:14, ‘For as many are as led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.’ I show you many more verses in ‘The Divine Secret’ but over and over again, the Bible calls us ‘sons of God,’ ‘children of God.’ He (God) says ‘I will be your Father and you will be my sons and daughters,’ (2 Corinthians 6:18), so Jesus is not the only son of God. He’s the only begotten Son of God from the way He came into the Earth, but God wants all of us to be sons of God and children of God.”
Aust noted, “The thing that struck me when I read that again, this could seem a rather bold statement for your readers to consider: How can infallible, puny human beings who need nourishment, who need sleep, how can they even be considered to be equal with angels eventually, or be angels, let alone to be born into the divinity of God, to be divine?”
Kovacs explained, “Right now, in our current form, we’re not there yet, so I don’t want to boost anybody’s ego and make them think that they are the bomb because it’s simply not the case yet. We are, in our current state, sinful beings who are all disobedient to the ways of God. But God is calling us out of that and He wants us to be part of His family.
“We are being trained right now to get our act together … stop breaking God’s laws and become, as the Bible says, ‘partakers of the divine nature.’ I didn’t put that phrase in the Bible. It’s already in the Bible from the apostle Peter. He says that ‘you may be partakers of the divine nature.’ (2 Peter 1:4) We’re actually going to take on God’s own divine nature … in the future … if we stop our sinning and give our life to God, and He has promised that He will raise us from the dead, give us eternal life, and we’ll be part of the divine family.”
Sounds almost straight from an LDS manual.
