The load, or weight, or burden of my neighbour's glory should be laid on my back, a load so heavy that only humility can carry it, and the backs of the proud will be broken. It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you can talk to may one day be a creature which, if you say it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare.
- by C. S. Lewis, from The Weight of Glory, p.45

We have many myths about immortal beings who are above and beyond us. But do you realise that we, humans are, in fact, immortals? The only difference among us will be whether we will be one day like Jesus the one and true God, the most glorious, or eternally judged and condemned to be separated from Him and remain as the most damned creature of all for eternity.
