When I first encountered the love of God through the cross as a child, I don’t think I had a clear distinction in my mind between God and Jesus. Today my 4-year-old son is the same way. Jesus and God are so alike, and are always talked about together, and they just kind of blend into each other. As I grew, I learned the classical definitions, and how to properly distinguish the different persons of the trinity. But now I believe that the child’s ambiguity is closer to the truth.
