Also, quick question; when you saywhat exactly do you mean? Do you mean to be with them as God, as in the Christian God? Or do you mean to become a god alongside them (who are separate beings)?Wanghui wrote:to be with them as God.
Wanghui wrote:I'm not quite sure but if you learn ancient chinese's legend and culture there's a belief that human being can become God in their next life if they did a good thing for humanity when they live in a world as human and of course it's different from Christian God maybe its like an angel or Saint in Christian's terminology

Or was it their god-likeness that inspired these artists to continue to build their myths?
What I'm getting at is, did Luo Guanzhong effectively "make" Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei (and Zhuge Liang) into "gods" by his literature and compliation of myths? Or did the history itself lend to their promotion to deities, as it did with Zhuge Liang?
