It seems that Satan's temptation is always the same. It is the one he succumbed to and it's the one he whispers in our ears today when it speaks as much to the materialistic technocrat as the magician or new age enthusiast or any person who takes to spirituality without seeking to do God's will instead of his own. It is what he says to the feminist as he leads her to disrupt the natural order of being for her own ends, and how he appeals to the radical leftist whose resentment is played upon to make it seem virtue in his eyes.
The thing is Satan is right. We do have the potential to become as gods. But not in his way which is the way of pride and ego. The only way is through Christ and this is the polar opposite to the one proposed by the fallen angel. For it is not our little self that becomes a god as in Satan's inverted distortion of the truth. It is the seed of Christ within us that can grow when we align it with its source. We can only become as gods when Christ is born within us. We must go beyond ourselves to becomes as gods and we can only go beyond ourselves through Christ. The old man is not deified. A new man must be born.
