In reply to Nuray:

You wrote: I don't understand and accept if any one or religion see created entities as the extension of God. This is not because I am Muslim. This is what my logic says so.

The Word is uncreated for the Word always existed eternally and was, is, and always will be God. Why don't you just go and read the sources that I gave you on the Trinity when you said you wanted more information if you don't understand?

You wrote: I can't say anything like "It is a greater responsibility to be like God." We Muslims fear from God. We don't put ourselves at the same level with God. What a big sin. We are just slave of Allah. We simply obey the rules of God. I think only devil can convince humans that they are extenstion of God or at the same level with God.

According to the Bible, God created man in His own image and likeness, and that is what made the devil jealous. Christians do not put themselves on the level with God. It is God's gift to human beings to be a reflection of Himself (of His wisdom, His intelligence, and all His other qualities) even if in an infinitely small measure and that is what I meant.

I look at the heavens, shaped by your fingers,

at the moon and the stars you set firm -

what are human beings that you spare a thought for them,

or the child of Adam that you care for him?

Yet you have made him little less than a god,

you have crowned him with glory and beauty,

made him lord of the works of your hands,

put all things under his feet. (Psalms 8:3-6)
