They've been answered. You may not like the answers, but that does not mean that your questions haven't been answered.
Let's answer them again.
This question is irrelevant. The fact is, God called them gods, twice. Apparently, God's definition of a god is not the same as yours. Even God noted in Adam AFTER he partook of the forbidden fruit. "They have become as one of US..."
Paraphrasing, they have become as one of the gods...
That seems pretty strait forward. Perhaps, God defines a god as one knowing good and evil.
The answer to the first question is in the text. They will die like men and fall like one of the princes IF they do not judge justly and not show partiality to the wicked.
The answer to your second question is, apparently, yes. Didn't Jesus die? Isn't he God?
The answer to your third question is the same as the answer to your second question.
Again, this question is totally irrelevant. Your "if" clause makes an assumption that can't be found in the text. Nothing in the text suggest that they are on earth or that anyone would contact them or that they were making any civil or religious judgment. The problem posed is that they judge justly. It says nothing of civil judgement or religious judgement. Bonnie, everyone judges. They do not have to be a ruler or a judge or a leader in religion. This passage applies to everyone, just as the Isaiah passages that you don't seem to grasp his message but love to draw a connection claim. It is a human problem. Ps 82 is talking about everyone who has the capacity to judge.
This is one of those obtuse questions based on what you "think" we believe and has nothing to do with Ps 82.
1. No they are not exalted humans. They aren't exalted because they can die like men.
2. I don't know. Does the passage tell us why they are doing it? No
3. That seems to be a pandemic here as well. Why do people do it here? Why did a third of the host of heaven do it there? Personally, I think it is the nature of most men to cheat or fix the odds in their favor or the favor of their friends.
4. Your last question is incoherent. I'm not sure what your asking, maybe it, again is based on what you think we believe and should be worded, "Can humans be exalted to deity in sin?" The answer is no. But with God, all things are possible. That's what Jesus said. I believe him. Do you?
When are you finally going to accept our straight-forward and honest answers?
The other poster never answered my questions. I asked him, not you. If you answered for him, that is fine. But neither on these new boards or on the last two, did I ever receive an answer from the other person.
1. The man became like US--there we have the Triune Godhead hinted at--ONLY in knowing good from evil. God is eternal, uncreated, omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. Man is NONE OF THESE THINGS, so man did not become a god after he sinned. That is nonsense.
2. So, IF these "gods" would die like men and fall like any prince, then that can ONLY mean they are human! You claim that God can die, since Jesus died. But Jesus was FIRST God, who then took on the additional nature of man, so HE COULD DIE. Because God is eternal and uncreated. Man is NOT. This is something Mormons continually choose to forget--Jesus HAD to become a man, HAD TO take on the additional nature of man, so He could die! But His God nature did NOT die on Calvary's cross! Remember what He said in John 2:19? "Destroy this Temple and in 3 days I
will raise it up." And John says He meant the temple of His body. Later on, the NT says that GOD raised Jesus' dead body from the grave. Here, in John, Jesus says HE will do it. Therefore, His Deity did NOT die when He died on the cross--else, how could He raise up His own dead body from the grave?
3. Your "answer" here is just a waffle. Again, IF these "gods" in Ps. 82 are real, true gods, and they judge people on earth, then HOW would people contact them to make judgments? I never said the text says they do judge in civil and religious cases. But the text does say that they favor the wicked and do not uphold the widow and orphan. Remember, God did appoint judges in the OT LoM, and in a few places, they WERE called "elohim." But remember these verses from Isaiah 3?
Woe to the wicked!
Disaster is upon them!
They will be paid back
for what their hands have done.
12 Youths oppress my people,
women rule over them.
My people, your guides lead you astray;
they turn you from the path.
13 The Lord takes his place in court;
he rises to judge the people.
14 The Lord enters into judgment
against the elders and leaders of his people:
“It is you who have ruined my vineyard;
the plunder from the poor is in your houses.
15 What do you mean by crushing my people
and grinding the faces of the poor?”
declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty.
Now, compare these and esp. the bolded parts to Ps. 82:
God presides in the great assembly;
he renders judgment among the “gods”:
2 “How long will you defend the unjust
and show partiality to the wicked?
3 Defend the weak and the fatherless;
uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
4 Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
Notice the similarity in tone and wording and CONTENT. Now, defending the UNjust and showing partiality to the wicked are rendering false judgments. Else, IN WHAT are these 'gods" showing partiality to the wicked and defending the unjust?
So, no, God is NOT talking about EVERYONE judging justly. It is talking about rulers and judges who favor the wicked and DEFEND the unjust. Certainly we should ALL just as justly and righteously as possible.
So, again are the "gods" in Ps. 82 actual deity or just powerful men?
4. My last question is not incoherent. You managed to answer it, sort of. So, these "gods" are NOT exalted humans, eh? Because they SIN? So, what exactly ARE they, then? Humans with great power or actual deity?
I do appreciate your taking the time to at least attempt to answer my questions. These were relatively straight-forward answers. but I asked them of another and never got ANY answer, not in the past three boards. I am grateful that you at least made an honest effort. Now, if you would kindly just tell me WHO or WHAT you think the gods in Ps. 82 actually ARE?
