[quote=FightingFat]Hello everyone! Can I ask for some help?
What answers can we give for the following questions:
It seems quite confusing as if jesus and god are the same… then why is there a father…?
How does the son = the father?
How can they have two distinct characteristics yet be the same?
Why would Jesus cry out to himself on the cross, if he was the father?
And what is so good about good friday, when it was jesus’s worst ever friday?
the trinity seems to collapse to two branches if jesus was the father…?
Many thanks and peace be with you all!
The trinity is one God three Persons. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirity. Jesus and the Father are two different Persons within the one being of God. The third is the holy trinity. Jesus was fully God and fully human. Good Friday is called that because through Christ’s death we have been given the chance of salvation. We couldn’t have done it without Christ. This is how the trinity has been described to me. God the Father exists, he is so good that his very being generates a second person of the trinity which is the Son. THe love between the Father and the Son generates the third person of the trinity, the Holy Spirit. Hoped this help.
