I thank a friend for sending me a writing in response to the previous post. I think it supports my assertion that Catholic theologians today speak more like Arians than anti-Arians.
His becoming “Lord” means that he shares completely in the presence and power of God. It is as “Lord” that Jesus is perceived by the first believers to be “God.”
We are finite beings who open onto infinity.
Readers can draw their own conclusions by reading Johnson’s review and Rubenstein’s When Jesus Became God. I find that theologians today write about Jesus as representing God, not being God—the Arian position.
