Now this is the first thing to get clear. What God begets is God; just as what man begets is man... That is why men are not Sons of God in the sense that Christ is... They are more like statues or pictures of God... This world is a great sculptor's shop. We are the statues and there is a rumour going round the shop that some of us are some day going to come to life.
--C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
