As God's wisest creature, he said to generic man (in the form of woman): "Did God say you would die?" and she answered: "Yes, if I ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." Then he made this statement: "God knows you will not surely die, but your eyes will be opened and you will become like the gods, knowing good and evil." (Genesis 3)"
"One night I went to sleep quite normally in the city of San Francisco, and in the wee hours of the morning a most intense vibration was taking place in my head and I begin to awake.

“No man takes away my life. I lay it down myself. I have the power to lay it down and the power to raise it up again.”
"God has imagined himself as you. He has taken upon himself a garment of flesh and blood for a purpose. Having sent himself - God cannot return to himself empty - but must accomplish his purpose and prosper in the thing for which he was sent."
