Why I Am Not A Goddess

Welcome to iamnotagoddess.com, I am so excited to have you here. I want to make an introduction for those who might not be familiar with this blog.
This blog started off in 2014 (before blogging was mainstream lol ), I started it because I love to write and other people thought I was gifted but more importantly because I felt I had something to say.

Initially, I wanted to start in 2013 when I had just become a Christian, but a friend advised me to wait and grow and not was the right. A year later, I started this blog on my birthday, my friend Rodney helped me choose the name and I started. The story behind the name comes from my name Diana, which was the name of the Greek goddess in Ephesus. She used to be very popular then, well until Paul came with the gospel, the power of the gospel caused people to turn away from their idolatry and that is how her fame declined. On the other hand, you have, Diana a 22 (then 17yrs old) year old Malawian girl whose life and story like that of the goddess has been changed by the gospel. So here I am, around 3 years later, a lot has changed but the important things have remained, like my desire to share the gospel, talk about art and culture, theology and all things African.

This me sharing my life, perspective and things that concern the African Urban Christian, I hope this will be a place you can find content that relates to you, as a Christian, African and someone living in the urban community. May you find your place in this space.

I would love to hear from you so why not leave a comment here, or alternatively you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram as @iamnotagoddess. You can also subscribe to receive exclusive content from me.

    You might not be a goddess
    But you are a god
    Because you are born of God
    And you have access to all of God by virtue of birth
    You should get to know your inheritance or sonship rights
    You get to know this as you pray, study the word and commit to be an ambassador of Christ and His kingdom.
    You are already on that road.

    Glad to connect with you.

      Thank you Tessa for leaving a comment.
      Although I would like to respectfully disagree with what you said. Being born again and born of God makes us children of God. As the scriptures say we have been made children of God Jesus being the first born over all and through him we get an eternal and imperishable inheritance (Romans 8:14-17).

      And on Christians being god’s, I believe that statement is a misinterpretation of Psalm 82:6 “I said, ‘you are “gods”; you are all children of the Most High”, this verse is also referenced by Jesus in John 10:34 “Jesus replied, “is it not written in your law: ‘I have said you are gods”.

      These men were called gods because of their representatives of God’s justice in society. Not necessarily because they were some sort of immortal being, because verse 7 tell us that “they does like mere men”.

      When Jesus quotes this verse in John 10:34, he is just trying to say if you can call mere men like these “gods”, what is wrong with him saying he is the Son of God.

      Using these verses to mean that we are gods, is to take these scriptures out of their intended context.

      However scripture does say those who are born again are Children of God, and God is comforting them into Christlikeness.

      Thank you once again for leaving a comment.
