The following three verses are used to support the Arian belief in Homoiousios (Jesus was like/similar to God, definition). Jehovah’s Witnesses use the same verses to support whatever it is they believe about Jesus.
Jesus answered him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone.
You heard me tell you, ‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I.
saying, "Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me; still, not my will but yours be done.
Now obviously, taken at face value, these verses do indeed support homoiousious and go against our Catholic understanding which is “One in being with the father”(homoousios, of the same nature, definition)
So what is the Catholic understanding of these verses? How are we to reconcile these verses with what we believe?
