Companion to Your Study of the New Testament: The Four Gospels: pg 85; “Exaltation is a synonym for eternal life. Exaltation comes only to those who inherit the highest degree within the celestial kingdom. It is the power to have eternal increase after the resurrection; it consists in the continuation of the family unit throughout eternity; it is the type of life that is lived by our Heavenly Father.”
Luke 14:11; “For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.”
Working your way to godhood status to be exalted clearly contradicts what Jesus told us to do. Furthermore, believing you are the only true church on the face of the earth is another way of exalting yourself which again contradicts what Jesus said.
