“As man is, God once was; as God is, man may become.” Mormons: we almost got it right: but that statement only applied in Eden prior to the Fall. Other Christians: you mostly got it right. God was/is ever righteous from eternity to eternity.
Maybe we sould rewrite that couplet to say: “As man chose, God for us weeps; as God is, man may still choose to become.”
