why did jesus beg for his life to god when he was crucified?

why did the old testament prohibit eating pork while the new one allow?


1. Because he was still human.

2. In my opinion, the old and new testaments should not be put together, because they do in fact contradict each other on a variety of issues - not just eating pork, but also other issues like divorce. I think the official reason is that the new law amended the old law.

Catholics are a denomination of Christianity. But they differ from protestants in that some believe in prayers to the saints, that the Sacraments become literal (that the Lord's Supper is physically Jesus' Flesh and Blood)

Catholics believe that the Pope is the head of the Church, some Catholics believe in infant baptism. Basically, Catholicism is a form of Christianity. Views differ from Catholi to Catholic (much like everyone else's views differ on each thing) It's tough to define with strict boundaries what Catholics are. But these are just a few basics that most (or at least some) would believe.

Jesus as a human, didn't want to suffer on the cross and begged God for another way. There was no other way, and Jesus still went and died for you.

the Old Testament is the Old Covenant between God and man. Through Jesus Christ we are in the New Covenant.

1. Yes, according to Christianity, Jesus is 100% god and 100% human.

2. It depends who you ask. Some people see how the old and new testaments complement each other, others see the discrepancies. It depends on what you're looking for. I'm unclear as to what you're asking with the second question. As for the third, it also depends on how you look at it. You could see it as human selfishness, appeasement, or simply a modification of overly strict rules. Different people see different things.

i'm still confused about the trinity, and the saints

how isn't it polytheistic? if you're worshipping more than one entity, doesn't that make it polytheistic?

i don't think god would literally change the person's mind...but maybe god will just guide and enlighten the person by sending "signs" or by sending other people to influence that him...or something like that :unsure:...and it's up to the person if he/she will listen....

do people who have never heard of god/young children automatically go to hell? or does god judge them based on what they've done in their lives?

God is merciful. I think young children who don't understand go to heaven. God is not cruel, and He doesn't send people to hell on a whim just because He wants to (God doesn't want anyone in hell) God judges the hearts of all people. And repentance is what saves, not good intentions.

The Holy Trinity is one, as I have learned.
Because God has three identities/personalities such as The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Because Jesus is God too but the only difference is He being human at the same time.

God - creator
Jesus - savior
Holy Spirit - conscience or spiritual guidance , well nvm.
