I was talking to a friend the other day and he brought up something that made me think about this. This is a pretty interesting and somewhat creepy statement, but I think it's fairly accurate: The closer we are to God the less personality we have. And conversely, the further we are from God the more personality we have.
If we look at personality as our individuality and our freedom to express ourselves and change ourselves then we can see how this may not quite be in line with God. Even the Bible says: Jesus Christ (meaning God in this context) is the same yesterday, today and forever. If God is the same that means there is no change. And since each one of us is on supposedly on our way towards being with God, or merging with God, then I think one would have to conclude by our earthly measures that you loose your personality as you merge with God.
Is this a bad thing? I don't really know. I don't want it to sound like we loose our free will or anything like that. Just because we are doing decisions that are more predictable (because they are in line with truth) doesn't mean we loose our free will. It simply means we understand everything so clearly that we choose to work with God rather than against.
