Section 460 of The Catholic Catechism (https://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p122a3p1.htm) illustrates that Latter-day Saints are not alone in their beliefs in potential Godhood. Although modern-day Catholics do not profess this belief, it has been a part of their historical beliefs since the 4th Century:460 The Word became flesh to make us "partakers of the divine nature":78 "For this is why the Word became man, and the Son of God became the Son of man: so that man, by entering into communion with the Word and thus receiving divine sonship, might become a son of God."79 "For the Son of God became man so that we might become God."80 "The only-begotten Son of God, wanting to make us sharers in his divinity, assumed our nature, so that he, made man, might make men gods."81

This is such a wonderful and clarifying article. A friend posted it on her FB site. But I don't feel I can post it as I have fundamentalist Christian friends and relatives whom I have "friended" and I am just happy that they finally realize that I believe in Jesus Christ. I think it would be too shocking for them to read what we believe. But I am not ashamed of our beliefs and they make so much sense to me. I love the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This discussion of our relationship with God was profound and helped clarify this doctrine.
