Answers to questions from a former Protestant
The following is an excerpt from our answers to a friend who has shown us his questions about the Holy Trinity. We have found it useful to publish them for the benefit of others.
1. HOW DO YOU INTERPRET THE FATHER THAT CHRIST, BEFORE LOOKING FOR HIS CHRIST, PRAYER THE GOD'S PATHER? AFTER HE WAS ONE WITH THE FATHER AFTER YOU ARE THE OWN GOD. AND NATURALLY CAN YOU REPLY THAT YOU PRAY AS HUMAN, ALSO ... AND AS HUMAN EXTRACTED THE GOD'S NATURE?
And since God is one, and not three, who recite? TO HIMSELF; Because man did not serve man, but divine, and godly. AND BEHIND THE MOTHER OF THE PATRAS AND ALWAYS ALREADY WITH THEM, WHO PRAISE? WHEN WERE GOD, WONDERFUL? THERE IS NO CONFIRMATION OF HIS VICTIMITY?
DOES YOU LOVE HIS FOLLOWING? WELCOME TO THE OWN WERE THE GOD? Did He Separate His Place from the Fat? IF YOU HAVE HYPOTHETICALLY HERE, DOES NOT HAPPEN THE "MOTHER OF THE PATRAS"? HOW DO YOU WORK AS GOD AND OTHER AS HUMAN? HOW IS THIS SEPARATION AND WHY?
If you look, you did not pray in the Holy Trinity, but in the Father! Every person of the Holy Trinity is a distinct and clearly distinguished person from the others. As my son and I are a substance in our human nature but another is my son and another I, so is the same with the Son and the Father. They both have the same essence of the Deity, but they are different faces. When we say: "Trinity Homosexual and inseparable," we say it about the essence, not the faces. We do not say "homosexual", but "homosexual". In every intelligent being, and in us, we distinguish the "person" that is always different, and the "essence" that can be common. When we say the word "Trinity," we mean SUBSTANCE
It is also good to remember that the Son in his divine nature does not need to pray, as omnipotent and omniscient. But the human has had all human indivisible passions, and human nature is not omniscient.
Scripture is written by Saint Maximus the Confessor: "Ignorance is of two kinds: the pretentious and the unalterable, and the first (dependent) of us, while the second is not (dependent) of us. is the ignorance of virtue and piety, and we are not unfathomable and independent of us, but we do not know what we want to know, that is, what is done away and what is to be done. prophets were made known, with (Divine) Grace, our distant ones and not (dependent) of us we know), how much less did the Son of God know, and through Him human nature, not by nature, but because of union (of human nature) to the Word? Because just as incandescent iron has all its idols of fire - because it brightens and burns - though it is not fire naturally, but iron, so the human nature of the Lord, because it was joined by the Word, knew everything, and these divine ones showed to Him (but) not to unite human nature to Himself, is said to (she) ignore. " (Text: "Doubt is the ignorance of this, whether spoken or unwise, and whether we are faithful or not, we have not." Even though we have read and understood the virtue and piety of ignorance; that is what we want to do, that we may live, that the future will be done, that the prophets of the Holy Prophets were provoked, and that we did not even have the grace of the Son of God, that is why the human nature, but join it to the Word ?, Opsper grate iron, always private the fire of fire has light; it burns light and burns; it is not fire, but iron; so also the human of the Lord, while it has been united in the Word, has always been, and these gods are inherent in themselves; it is said to be ignorant ").
St. Athanasius, on the same subject, for the human knowledge of the Lord, writes: "As the Word is beginning to be ignorant, man is ignorant of Himself ..." He was not "the Son of God" , the word of God was ignorant, but simply "neither the Son", nor the Son of man or ignorance. For this reason, angels say, they have not yet recovered, that neither the Holy Spirit, nor the Holy Spirit, both of them that the Spirit of God, much more the Word, or the Word of God, even though the Spirit also receives that of the Holy Spirit nod of silence, apparently convinced, that about this human function he was "not the Son". " (Saint Athanasius, Reason C by Arians).
This does not mean that he was not God. But he did not always reveal all the power and omnipotence of Godhead. That is why Paul says: "He has anointed himself, he takes a slavish form ..." He did not declare himself of God, but of His glory and strength.
