Inspired by @NickolaosPappas inspiring, dogged faith.
I’m having another hysterical loop of cognitive dissonance.
Was Jesus God?
I’ve spent months, years deconstructing and getting to the point, shared in every way with a superb spiritual adviser, the best, more than I could have possibly hoped for at the time, in March, where he responded with Jesus being the ultimate manifestation of God. But obviously not very God as God is God.
But it’s obvious that Jesus believed He was. I’ve led myself down the garden path from that. Just as other liberals can’t see Him knowingly fulfilling PSA. I always have. I failed to see the glaringly obvious.
So, was solely incarnate Jesus very God? The Word, Logos, God in Person made flesh?
Despite the utter impossibility of God the Son collapsing from beyond infinity to being solely coterminous with an ovum (or was it the conceiving agent the Spirit used?), extracting Himself from the Holy and Indivisible Perichoretic Trinity. Once. Between eternities. Once after the eternity of inhabited worlds. Did He seal Himself off from the rest of creation in a meiotic human cell? Stupid rhetorical yet nagging questions.
How could Jesus be very God and how could God be Jesus? How could the eternal creator-sustainer of eternal creation simultaneously be a dot of a dot of a dot… of a dot of a dot of infinite from eternity?
The light pressure of that question is preventing the gravitational collapse of faith still, amazingly.
Is concurrency possible? Jesus was very God. And God was not ontically changed by that. The greatest superposition of states I can imagine. God died and did not die.
On this day - Good Friday
Was Jesus Schroedinger’s God?
