3. Many would regard it as a challenge from Satan.
Edited on Sun Apr-23-06 12:50 PM by patrice
They have defined "God" as absolute, so to be absolute (as it is possible for one to be) is to become closer to "God". Aside from the fact that that verges on blasphemy, they view Changing as not being absolute.

There's a reason the First Commandment IS the First Commandment. The way our brains function, we automatically break it by defining "God", along with everything else that we reflexively identify, as a mutually exclusive this or that, with mutually exclusive these or those qualities.
