Essorant,

I think what John's getting at is ... how, if man is imperfect and flawed, is he to be understood as a divine work?  Either 1) God has good intentions, but is himself flawed and incapable, or 2) he is not good, or 3)  There's a good reason why man (his creation) doesn't fully reflect his glory.


The Judeo/Christian view of God asserts three is the right answer.  But I at least understand John's question. (unless he was referring to something else entirely)


Stephen.

I didn't mean absolutly divine.  

Man is inspired by divinity, and in that extent, I believe he is divine.
