Our Identity and Our Destiny


Recommended Posts

I found this mentioned at https://speeches.byu.edu/talks/tad-r-callister/our-identity-and-our-destiny/
by Tad R. Callister, Of the Presidency of the Seventy back on August 14, 2012

In one segment he said

To this He readily acknowledged that He was and declared that they should be likewise: "Is it 
not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?" (John 10:32–34; emphasis added). In other words, 
He said not only am I a god, but all of you are potential gods. He was referring to His own 
Old Testament declaration, with which the Jews should have been familiar: "Ye are gods; and 
all of you are children of the most High" (Psalm 82:6)

One church web site has something different.

SPIRIT CHILDREN OF THE FATHER

Ye are gods, children of the most High, Psalm 82:6.


Is Psalm 82:6 a reference to beings who are already gods or those who have the potential to
become gods?  And was Jesus really saying that he was a 'small g' god?

I was wondering the same thing.

Thanks for bringing this speech to my attention.   It looks like something I would enjoy.  Now I have something else to listen to on my trip road trip next week.  (But sadly, I won't be able to hear if Elder Callister is using an uppercase or lower case "G" in the talk).

You should report your own thread and asked it to be moved or start a new one as I don’t see this getting traffic.
