    I would answer " I am not in any shape or form able or worthy to hold these powers" So I will refuse to have them.

    In my opinion: It is said that "God became man so that man could become god," the Saints a divinized and become all God is save being the divine essence (or they would not be themselves at all), so while it is not a copy in the sense that we are what God is in His essence, the participation in His acts is immense and deifying that they are simply in Scripture and elsewhere called gods.

    They do go around healing people, praying for them, enlightening them, and so on. It's pretty cool. If I make it there I'll do the same (according to me).

    I might ask God to take it back. That’s a lot of responsibility for a human being to have. I don’t think I would want to know everything either.

    I see it like God knows best what to do with his power and knowledge. Have you ever seen the movie Bruce Almighty? In the movie Bruce gets God like powers but not all and he ended up making a mess of things. I think people would likely mess something up with those kind of powers.

    Then I would to have a way for all His ten powers to remain solid,

    not unlike Moses, to the rules and powers that he had,

    that were shattered......ahhh...the words of `God`

    interesting thought...who made the `copy` ?
