Conversations with Angie: Are God's roles inconsistent with each other?
I wasn't debating. Just discussing. :)
I think you're right, and we'll have to agree to disagree. In any case, we won't be able to arrive at a definitive answer.
I do find it interesting, though, that you said:
"Basically, 'Father' is just one role God has among many. God is also king, judge, ruler, etc. He fills all of these roles. His role as a judge may, in some cases, be inconsistent with his role as a Father."
I've never heard a Christian say that God's various roles could be inconsistent with each other. Usually, I've heard that we may not understand why He does something in a particular way, but that all of His actions, in any role, are consistent with His nature/being.
So, on to the next point!
How did your test go today?
