So there are a lot of questions about Christ you can ask.
I am a Catholic Philosopher. We use any number of Catholic versions of the bible.
So I come at God from a Logos perspective originating from Aristotle to Augustine to Aquinas then CS Lewis and even Peterson now.
This means God is "truth" therefore looking for any truth is looking for God. It also means question all of man, we could be feeding each other lines of BS when God is just around the corner and we just haven't looked in the right place yet.
This also means I choose Philosophy or Religion over Theology. Meaning Logic over Scripture or Passed Down story.
As far as Christ, I believe. However, this leads to a TON of philosophical questions. If God controls the universe could he have chosen to just forgive our sins instead of making himself suffer? If the Jews were "being right" would we have needed Christ?
There are some harder to grasp questions about this. There is prophecy from the old testament, but that would mean "man could control God" if it had to be fulfilled just because it was written.
My current question is about the very first thing ever. God couldn't be the first thing because if it was fully formed, then there would have had to be a precursor to it. Meaning God wasn't first no matter what. If it pulled itself out of something, then that something was first. What created it? That first moment from nonexistence to existence.. from nothing to space for anything to be at all. That question.
Gonna direct our chat dudes here.
Case for Christ is a good one if you think the Jesus Myth or Bart Ehrman have a point. It contradicts both with a lot of written history.
