Judaism and claiming to be God

Many people across the world are now claiming themselves to be God. It is common practice in Hinduism and perhaps Buddhism.

How far are we from Jews claiming to be God too? From claiming that they ARE Jehovah.

It is not common practice for Jews to claim that they are God. Jews practice the discipline of being subservient to God.

But what would happen if some Jews actually claimed that they are Jehovah?

Hey Honza,

Well, not being Jewish myself, from observation I would say if they did so they were not following Jewish traditional beliefs, so I am not sure they would even be considered Jewish if they were to believe such a thing.

Do you think that Judaism could ever evolve into a state where Jews would be allowed and accepted to call themselves God?

I suppose anything is possible, I don't think such a belief would be accepted as Judaism though. If they stick to their holy scriptures as a guide I would think it would be hard pressed to get the Jewish nation to forsake Torah. imo...

Is the Torah totally in contradiction to calling oneself God? Can it not be interpreted as though one IS God? I don't know enough about it.

Is the Torah not a path by which one eventually becomes God? That is the question.

Honestly I am answering from a place of novice when it come to Torah teachings from the Jewish perspective, but what I do know and understand from the OT I do not believe there is any teaching to support that man is God.
It may elude to the fact that when we pass over we can become one with God, as to where God is, but not becoming God. At least that is my understanding...

When you folks take a breath, maybe I'll get a word in edgewise.

B'shalom,
