We are not God. We are not the same as God, we are not a part of Him, and we are not a “splinter” of Him. Nor will we ever be. He does not depend on anything else, because He is what everything else depends on. He cannot be explained by anything else, because He is what everything else must be explained by. There is no one like Him. He is utterly above us. He is what He is, and there was never a time when He was not.
