Do you believe that within the trinity there is a hierarchy meaning that the Father is basically the ultimate ruler and above Jesus? I think that there are a few verses in the bible which seem to indicate this for example where it says that the man is the head of the woman just as the Father is above Jesus. Or another verses which seems to indicate this is that only the Father knows when Jesus will return. And why does Jesus refer to the Father as God and not to himself? When Jesus was on earth why did he not say that he is God instead of the son of God? I mean son of God sounds smaller than God. And the bible also often refers to Jesus as servant. When I read these verses then I get the impression that Jesus somehow had to earn the position and the glory which he has now. Now he is sitting to the right of the Father but was he also sitting there before he went to earth? And why is Jesus always refered to as "The Lord" but not as God? Like "My God said to my Lord...." this seems to make a separation between the Father and Jesus. This creates a problem in my opinion because when I think of the word "God" then God is the highest and the most powerful but if the Father is actually above Jesus and has even more power than Jesus then how can we say that Jesus is as much God as the Father? We can of course solve this problem by just saying that Jesus belongs into the Godhead just like the Father does but this is not a real solution but rather an escape. I simply wish the bible was clearer and in a way I can understand how people could be lead to believe that Jesus somehow worked himself up and earned his position or that Jesus was just a man who attained a higher position it's because of those verses where Jesus is called servant. This gives you the impression that he worked himself up by obeying. And what about Yahwe? Is Yahwe the Father or Jesus? It cannot be both. Is the God of the old testament who talked to Moses the Father or was it Jesus? This is consufing. Here a few verses: Why is there a distinction between the Father who is called God and Jesus who is called Lord? This really sounds as if only the Father is God.
