Divinization of Man

Just a quick quote from Jürgen Moltmann’s book Man: Christian Anthropology in the Conflicts of the Present.

“As total man, as ideal man, as the man of possibilities or the man of decision, man must himself accomplish things which he cannot accomplish. The divinization of man makes him not more human, but rather more inhuman. An anthropology which, in the modern post-Christian sense, intends to be the heir of theology, loses sight not only of the real God but also of real man.” p. 107.
