I am in a pastoral group where they are teaching us about the Catholic faith, but some of it here (in Mexico) seems different than I remembered in the US.
In my group, they have said Jesus is also “Father” and “Creator”. In fact, in addition to the pastoral group, prayers here often reflect this. I see God as one, but I see God the Father as “Creator” and “Father”. I don’t see Jesus in those two roles. I don’t remember this from the US.
Now, I know that Jesus said that when we look at him, we are looking at the Father but still.
At the end of our study for each week, we have a series of questions. Indeed, it will ask what Christ was…answers will be things like, “king”, “pastor”.Along with that, here, they will throw in “Father”, and “Creator”.
I will basically raise my hand and tell them here that seems inconsistent from my understanding of it in the US. They will assure me it’s correct.
I’ll say, “Okay” and go back to my studies but have had this nagging question. I didn’t know if that was correct or not. So, I figured I’d come here for confirmation.
