The Nature of God in Christianity

This excellent video was released on calling christians.com.

“In this 5 minute clip, we discuss the topic of the ontology of God in Christianity, more directly – the ontotheology of Christ. We point out some key contradictions in the New Testament and how these contradictions affect Christianity’s doctrines.

and God knows best.”

Refuting claims like

“But if God can interact with the physical universe (and who am I to say he can’t), why can’t he interact in a sustained, localised way, in a human being (i.e. Jesus’ body)?”

“Even when God the Son became incarnate, it is still true that the Son is not a man in his naturaleternal state a man. It is an acquired nature, not an inherent one.”

  1. “Even when God the Son became incarnate, it is still true that the Son is not a man in his natural, eternal state a man. It is an acquired nature, not an inherent one.”
    Regardless the violation of Oneness of God obviously!
    I’d say Richard’s statement “Still true that the Son is not a man in his natural” ≠ God has become a man.
    According to his statement , we can ask why christians say that God (EMPTIED) himself then?

    It seems that Richard says that God just dwelt inside the body of that human being otherwise he needs to define his language, especially that some passages in the NT suggest otherwise!
    For example, “Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form”
    If God was still not man even after he became incarnate, there is no need for that ” emptiness ” !
    All of that must be explained without neglecting the fallacy idea that a person is god and man at the same time. Perfect and imperfect simultaneously !

  2. Abdullah,
    Great point. I am sure some Christians will equivocate on what the definition of “Emptied” means.

    Similar to the Monica Lewinsky affair when Bill Clinton was asked about the truthfulness of his statement “there is nothing going on between us”, he replied, “It depends on what the definition of “is” is. 🙂
