Roots of the Faith - The Incommunicable Attributes of God: Eternity - 1/25/23

INTRO

  • "The incommunicable attributes are God's characteristics or perfections, as revealed by Scripture, that God does not communicate, or share, with human beings." (Gregg R. Allison, page 73)

  • "The foundation of all true knowledge of God must be a clear mental apprehension of His perfections as revealed in Holy Scripture. An unknown God can neither be trusted, served, nor worshipped." A.W. Pink

  • When we get our view of God right... then we can get our life right. - Right Belief - Right Living

Eternity


"God has no beginning, end, or succession of moments in his own being, and he sees all time equally vividly, yet God sees events in time, and he acts in time."

-Wayne Grudem, Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine, Second Edition. (Grand Rapids, Ml: Zondervan Academic, 2020), 199.


"Eternity is the divine attribute by which God is not bound by time but always exists."

-Gregg R. Allison, 50 Core Truths of the Christian Faith: A Guide to Understanding and Teaching Theology (Grand Rapids, Ml: Baker Books: A Division of Baker Publishing Group, 2018), 75.
