Use "divinity" in a sentence
  • "Let me give something that will lead each one to the knowledge of the divinity of every human soul, something that will lead each one to the conscious realization of _his own divinity_, with all its attendant riches, and glories, and powers, -- let me succeed in doing this, and I can then well afford to be careless as to whether the critics praise or whether they blame."
  • "To maintain the obnoxious claim that only "your" version of divinity is real and everybody else's experience of God is delusionary only disses other people and pisses them off."
  • "From this concept also comes the notion that divinity is both eminent (internal) and transcendent (external)."
