Christians often want to protect the deity of Christ. They insist that being a Christian entails being Trinitarian and that of course always means affirming that "Jesus is God".
But what does not come across as often as that is the idea that God is like Jesus.
In other words, many Christians still hold fast to the idea that the Father of Jesus, who we see in the Old Testament scriptures, is a wrathful, impatient, angry and quite often bloodthirsty God, in contrast to Jesus, the Son, who is a decidedly softer and more gentle personality.
On one side, this isn't surprising. There are noticeable differences in God's character between those Old and New Covenant scriptures. So, we have to reconcile those apparent contradictions somehow, and what better way than by appealing to the language of the Trinity where there are 3 distinct "persons" who make up the one substance we call the One True God.
Now, I'm not against the doctrine of the Trinity. I personally affirm the doctrine. But I think my fellow Trinitarians are off-base when they attribute two different personalities to the Father and the Son. Especially when the New Testament scriptures give us no wiggle room in that capacity.
Simply put: The New Testament scriptures only affirm - over and over again - that Jesus IS what the Father looks like, and that means: The Father looks like Jesus.
Here's are a few examples from Jesus Himself:
"I and the Father are one" - John 10:30
Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father." - Jesus [John 14:9]
"Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me" - John 14:11
And here are a few scriptures from the Apostles about how Jesus and the Father are alike in heart and character:
