Deification/Theosis
#11
Quote:Jack89
It seems pretty clear to me that in order to be "partakers of the divine nature", to be sharers in His divinity, we must transform ourselves to be more Christ-like, to be open to the grace of God in order to share in that experience.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's pretty much the reason for the Sacraments, why we adhere to the precepts of the Church, why we need to love God and our neighbor.  Not a reward/punishment thing, but more of an eye opener to the truth... 


Yes, the reason and the WHY!

Forgive my rambling, but I guess what I'm trying to point out is that the teachings are there but it isn't often defined and declared as "deification".

You are right, it is at the heart of everything and it's sad people don't know about it.
