Attributes of God: Unity

July 1, 2004

Theology_Matters Attributes of God: Unity As different as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are, they do have one thing in common. Each affirms that there is only one God. Christians, however, believe that the one God exists in a unity of three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In the eyes of Judaism and Islam, this belief amounts to...

Attributes of God: Incomprehensible

December 1, 2004

Theology_Matters Attributes of God: Incomprehensible With obvious pride, Henry Ford once told a visitor to the Ford Motor Company the exact number of parts in one of the automobiles that had just been completed on the assembly line. “There are exactly four thousand, seven hundred and nineteen parts in that model,” he declared as he pointed...

Prayer and the Attributes of God

April 1, 2017

Theology_Matters Prayer and the Attributes of God The believer’s confidence in prayer is grounded in two fundamental attributes of God: His omnipotence and His omniscience. The divine attribute of omnipotence describes His power, and the attribute of omniscience describes His knowledge. Our hope in prayer is rooted in the fact that God...

Question and Answer

June 1, 2005

My question is based on Romans 1:20: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible attributes—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Is it true that people living in the past, or at the present in remote parts of the world, can be saved...

Question and Answer

January 1, 2011

Lately, our Bible reading club has been reading the Old Testament with growing dismay. Its butchery appalls us, principally because it is attributed to God. God sends armies against helpless people with orders to slaughter them. God orders the indiscriminate killing of women and children. What gives? Is the God of the Old Testament different...

Theology_Matters Love Some theologians divide God’s attributes into incommunicable and communicable attributes. Incommunicable attributes are those associated only with God, which means they cannot be shared by other human beings. These attributes include His self-existence, immutability, infinity, and unity. The communicable attributes...

God of Judgment, God of Mercy

September 1, 2010

Theology_Matters God of Judgment, God of Mercy God’s judgment and mercy, both important themes in the Minor Prophets, seem incompatible. Yet they are both characteristics of God’s dealings with sinful humanity. The God of the Bible hates sin, and He executes judgment. He is also a God who is patient with sinners and shows mercy. Divine judgment...

Word of God

January 1, 2006

Word of God It’s a running theme we experience every winter. We stand in long lines to get the best Christmas bargains . . . then a few weeks later we stand in even longer lines to return the gifts that don’t fit, don’t work, or that we just don’t want. We can rejoice, though, that God knows our needs better than our families and friends...

God of Justice

June 1, 2009

Theology_Matters God of Justice Justice is one of the key theological themes of the Minor Prophets. While an attribute of God, justice is also an obligation on the part of those who have been created by God. This obligation is summarized in the command of Micah 6:8: “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require...

The Fatherhood of God

August 1, 2009

Theology_Matters The Fatherhood of God The church was not the first to address God as Father. Although it appears considerably less frequently than in the New Testament, some Old Testament writers used the term Father to refer to the God of Israel (Deut. 32:6; Isa. 63:16; 64:8). Israel was criticized for calling God “my Father” and “my friend...
