Octavian also known as the emperor Augustus assumed the title of Divi Filius (son of a god). Why is Octavian not the son of a god?

Every person is a son or daughter of God.

Every person is a Prince or Princess to the King of Kings.

The high-and-mighty people just see their self as the only one.

Ok I may disagree about what we all are but that made me chuckle. :)

By saying 'the son of god' and not 'The Son of God' might be the issue.
By not saying TSoG you seem not to be speaking about TSoG most claim is Jesus.

Beyond that, maybe they are the same. Seems like many things "of Jesus" were 'borrowed' from other religions throughout time from what I've seen.

Which deity are we talking about? I presume you are using the term "god" in place of the term deity and not referring to the Norse deity Got.
