Welcome to Coastal Bend Family Worship Center!

Understanding Our Existence

When contemplating our place in the universe and our relationship with a higher power, it is natural to wonder if we can be considered little gods. This question has intrigued and divided people for centuries. At Coastal Bend Family Worship Center, we strive to provide comprehensive answers based on the teachings of the Bible.

The Divine Creator

Before delving into the topic of whether we can be considered little gods, it is essential to acknowledge the concept of a divine creator. According to Christian beliefs, God is the supreme being who created the heavens, the earth, and everything within them. The Bible teaches us that God is separate from His creation and reigns with ultimate authority.

Understanding Our Nature

As human beings, we possess unique qualities and characteristics that set us apart from the rest of creation. The Bible describes us as God's masterpiece, created in His own image, and endowed with faculties such as intellect, emotion, and moral consciousness. However, it is crucial to distinguish between being made in the image of God and being gods ourselves.

Exploring the Concept of "Little Gods"

The term "little gods" is often associated with the belief that human beings can attain divine attributes or possess god-like powers. This idea has roots in various theological and philosophical traditions. However, it is important to examine this concept in light of biblical teachings.

The Sovereignty of God

The Bible repeatedly emphasizes the absolute sovereignty of God. He is the one true God, eternal and all-powerful. Scripture affirms that there is no one like Him and that He alone deserves worship and adoration. The notion of humans being little gods stands in contradiction to these teachings.

Our Role as God's Creation

While we are indeed special and uniquely created, it is vital to recognize our role as God's creation. In the book of Genesis, God entrusted humans with the responsibility to care for and steward His creation. This caretaker role does not imply that we possess god-like attributes but rather highlights our duty to honor and respect the world around us.

Embracing Our Identity in Christ

For Christians, our identity is found in our relationship with Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that through faith in Him, we become children of God and heirs to His promises. While this spiritual connection is profound, it does not elevate us to the same level as God. Instead, it emphasizes the depth of God's love and grace toward us.
