Genesis 1:26 makes it clear that man is made in the image and likeness of God, the Father. But God is not Homo sapiens!
Yet man is created again in Genesis 2:7 from the dust of the ground (chemicals or physical matter).
Thus, man is immortal spirit wrapped in Homo sapiens flesh.
But there is a third component to man -- Ego!
The children of God are not the bodies or the egos -- they are the immortal spirit.
Thus, the baby gods are only those who are living in spirit and in the Love that is God.
It is blasphemy to say that everyone is a god, because most people are living in self-concern (ego) -- and ego is the antithesis of Love.
When we can love another AS ourselves, without any self-concern on our part, then we are truly Following Christ. I suspect that many great religious founders were Following Christ, when we use this definition.
Giving up Ego is hard, but Christ said that the narrow path to salvation is difficult. We have to exercise giving up our attachments to the things of this world, especially our self-concern.
But the best way to do this is to convert Ego to Altruistic Love. Use the power of Ego to drive its conversion. Use the power of God to guide us toward that full conversion. This is the way of Kabbalah -- the ones who wrote the Bible!
