The Incommunicable Attributes of God – Independance
Whilst reading CJ Mahaney’s Humility, he advised that we should all learn about the Attributes of God and especially the Incommunicable Attributes – the parts of God we don’t have.
So the first Attribute is:
God does not need us or the rest of Creation for anything, yet we and the rest of Creation glorify Him and and bring Him joy.
- God does not need anything from Mankind.
God was never created and never came into being – he always was.
- God is someone totally unique.
- God actually delights in his people and rejoices over them.
I’ve got all this from Wayne Grudem’s Bible Doctrine, which is packed full of stuff, even though it’s a abridged version of the massive Systematic Theology!
