I never understood this, its always confused me as a non-christian. So my question is, do you guys believe that Jesus is God? How is he the son of God but God anyway? I know you believe there's only one God so they cant both be Gods. But how is a Father a son and a son a father?
Can you be your own dad and a son at the same time? Can you be the son of God but also the Father of yourself as God? Do different types of Christians believe one or the other? If so, what brought about these 2 very contrasting views?
Also, if Priests can't marry and have kids for holy reasons, why does God have a son?
(P.S: I'm not trying to be rude or have any malicious intent, I'm actually curious about something I might not be able to ask people straight up, religion is sensitive after all)
God was Jesus in human flesh . But God is a spirit. So technically like a splitc
Posting here to watch this thread. I’ll reply in a bit when I’m less busy.
God had sexual intercourse with a women called Susan, Susan is Jesus's mother. Mary is Jesus's birth mother.
Jesus is a propet of God. Neither the son of god. Or god himself.
Jesus was the human embodiment of God but described as his son to make it less confusing for the people who met him. Only Catholic priests aren't allowed to marry, Anglicans and other Protestant priests can marry and have children. I'm not 100% sure but i think Catholics see sex as sinful and that is why they don't allow priests to marry, Jesus was conceived by immaculate conception so it doesn't really count, how else was God supposed to get down here?
They believe in the trinity, which consists of Jesus (the son), the Holy Spirit and God (the father). 3 persons in one.
The priest question has me stumped though. I'd love to hear an answer to that.
Thank you for all the replies. Im still a bit rocky on it but I wanted to hear Christian opinion on this. I like to try and understand religions other than my own (dont ask me what i am) just in case and to weigh pros and cons. Whats best for me etc...
Sorry again if i said anything that was rude.
