Michael S. Horton.
Reformed theologians have often criticized the idea of grace elevating nature (like helium in a balloon), and the modified Platonism that underlies it . Instead of making us something more than human, grace saves and liberates humans to become more human: finally to glorify and to enjoy God forever.
Many religious or spiritual people want to believe that to be ‘one with God’ means to shed our humanity and become one with the universe. This is not what the Bible teaches. We were made humans and our humanity was corrupted by sin. When, at last, free of sin we will once again be the human creatures we were designed to be.
