Philosoraptor Meme | WHAT IF GOD TRANSCENDS ANY AND ALL KINDS OF GENDER? | image tagged in memes,philosoraptor | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
God is Spirit and does not have a gender. He or She is simply human projection.

Yes I know, but he chose to be called "He" (Father and Son, not Mother and Daughter).

Third World Skeptical Kid Meme | YET HE IS HIS OWN SON? | image tagged in memes,third world skeptical kid | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
It's funny watching people try and explain that. When they can't, they just throw up their hands and say it's ineffable.

"Son" is used here as a analogical term. It doesn't mean that God actually causes himself.

Analogy in what way? The word son means male offspring, as in a created being. How can God be his own son and his own father at the same time? Please explain.

Well no, christian theology doesn't say that God the Son is the male offspring of God the Father. That would make no sense, because God is not caused and is not male. However, there is sometimes a confusion among non christians because christian theology says that the Son was incarnated, and so became human. The Son is therefore God and a male human at the same time, and we call him Jesus. And people sometimes think that we call him "Son" because he's a male human, but it's not the case. The Son was not created (only his human nature was), and if we call him Son, it's because he's the intellectual image God has of himself. Indeed, God is omniscient, and therefore knows himself perfectly. Therefore the intellectual "concept" he has of himself is absolutely identical to himself, and is God himself. That's why saint John refers to the Son as the Word in the beginning of his Gospel (Word is a translation from Logos, which can mean word but also thought). And since God is his own intelligence and his own thought (the thinking of thinking, as Aristotle says) he is one with his own concept. Therefore there is one God, but there is a point of view in which he's thinking himself (the Father), and a point of view in which he's thought by himself (the Son). Those two points of view are really distinct in God, but not separable.

My point was that using the word son to refer to Jesus is a poor choice, since son means male offspring and Jesus isn't the offspring of God.

You lost me with the "God is his own intelligence" part. At any rate, Jesus doesn't have all the attributes of God, since God is supposed to be omniscient, and Jesus makes references to his own lack of omniscience.

Christian theology says that Jesus has two intelligences: one from his divine nature, and one from his human nature. By his human intelligence he's obviously not omniscient. But he is omniscient by his divine intelligence. Jesus has all the attributes of God by his divine nature, and all the attributes of a normally constituted human by his human nature.

A doctrine not without confusion and controversy, this is impossible to answer in a meme format, or a few brief paragraphs. But it gets worse! The mystery deepens: The Holy Spirit (aka "Holy Ghost") is also separate and not separate from the Father and the Son. Logical terms cannot explain how we are "in Christ" while He is "in us." Sorry.

The confusion is only level confusion. In Heaven the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all one. Only one earth do they appear to be separate which is why this world can not be real.

It depends if you believe the author of the Bible is God or not.
