Phil. 2:5 - "have this mind in you which was also in Christ Jesus". When you look at the early Church Fathers, the notion of deification/divinization/theosis is orthodox teaching....Irenaeus says, "God became man, so man could become God." From the Church Fathers to the great mystics of the Middle Ages - John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, Ignatius of Loyola, Francis of Assisi, to our modern time..with Father Thomas Keating among others...we are called to a higher conscisousness...to put on the mind of Christ. How many Christians do not see this or get this reveals their lcak of understanding of the depth of our tradition and that it calls for a transformation equal to the Hindu cliam of realizing our union with God.
