Just Me

What a relief - As someone who struggles with "perfectionism" I enjoyed reading the definitions of perfect, especially 1, 4 & 8 as they are so much less than what I find myself trying to be - #2. On the other hand, I do think that God is "perfect" in all of the ways listed. Oh, and he's a bass!


Our LDS friends like to use this passage as a prooftext towards establishing their doctrine of exaltation - the idea that one day they will become like God and get their own planet to populate and rule if they have "fully obeyed all the ordinances of the gospel".
None of those definitions would suggest anything of a sort. As a believer, I would expect that when we are perfect, we are most fully human, i.e. we are what God intended us to be when He created us.
Only when we stand before Him, face to face, are all the imperfections of the Fall stripped away.
Philosophically speaking, I do not think that God needs to use language to communicate in heaven especially since we will then have the mind of Christ (could be telepathy?).
Hmm, I think I may ponder this over at my own blog.
