Our Destiny: Do we become Gods?

Session 5 - What is humanity’s destiny and purpose? Is heaven more like a marriage or a motel visit?

In this final talk, David advocates the age-old vision of the Patristics that ‘God became human in order that humanity may become God’. This breathtaking vision is at once completely orthodox, but almost sounds blasphemous. Together Tony and David explore this vision of ‘deification’ through the work of Gregory of Nyssa and his touching homily on marriage as the culminating picture of the union between God and humanity.
