The divine attributes of Jesus Christ. We all agree that God has three personal attributes. He is omnipresent - that means he is everywhere present. He is omniscient - that means He is absolutely perfect in knowledge. He is omnipotent - that means that He can bring to pass everything which He wills.

Impassibility. The doctrine of the impassibility of God is a controversial one. It is usually defined as the inability of God to suffer, while recognising that Jesus, who is believed to be God, suffered in his human nature.

The Westminster Confession of Faith says that God is "without body, parts, or passions". This article seeks to unpack four divine attributes that undergird the complicated presentation of Y hwh in the book of Joel's interpretation of disaster: divine abandonment, divine aggression, divine compassion, and divine judgment.

In each case, the portrait of the deity that emerges is rooted in the literature of Israelite : Douglas Watson.

A mission is a wonderful opportunity to continue developing and magnifying our divine characteristics as we strive to become more like the Savior.

Jesus Christ showed us how we should live. Stephen Charnock, The Existence and Attributes of God. Charnock’s work, published inremains one of the best resources on the attributes of God. He provides clear definitions as well as thorough biblical and theological defenses of the attributes.

The Thirteen Attributes of Mercy or Shelosh-'Esreh Middot HaRakhamim (transliterated from the Hebrew: שָׁלוֹשׁ עֶשְׂרֵה מִידוֹת הַרַחֲמִים) as enumerated in the Book of Exodus (Exodus –7) are the Divine Attributes with which, according to Judaism, God governs the world.

According to the explanation of Maimonides these attributes must not be regarded as. Question: "What are the attributes of God?" Answer: The Bible, God’s Word, tells us what God is like and what He is not like.

Without the authority of the Bible, any attempt to explain God’s attributes would be no better than an opinion, which by itself is often incorrect, especially in understanding God (Job ). god knows that which will take place in freedom in the future as something which happens in freedom.

(Emil Brunner) 2. it is not that god knew what was going to happen, because god sees everything at once, so god knows it's going to happen because he sees it happen, as if one person says to another, "read a book", the person who asked knows that the other read the book because they saw it.

"William Bates' The Harmony of the Divine Attributes in the Contrivance and Accomplishment of Man's Redemption is in a class of books which few are writing in our day. Here is a thorough opening of the central principles of the Gospel--without the corrosive errors so often found in modern presentations of this glorious theme, and well-delivered.

Millard J. Erickson (24 June ), born in Isanti County, Minnesota, is a Protestant Christian theologian, professor of theology, and has written the widely acclaimed page systematics work Christian Theology as well as over 20 other books.

Erickson was Distinguished Professor of Theology at Western Seminary in Portland, was professor of theology and academic dean at Nationality: American.

In the Islamic Sufi tradition, it is said, "Qualify yourself with the qualities of God." Compiled from classical Arabic and Turkish texts of Al-Ghazali, Ibn Arabi, Djili, and Abdul Qadir Jilani, among others, these are the divine attributes by which God manifests Himself in the world and by which He completes the spiritual life of man.The divine nature remains truly divine and the human nature remains truly human, each retaining its own attributes.

This must be so. If Christ’s humanity acquires a divine attribute, Jesus is no longer truly human and cannot represent other human beings before God or atone for their sin.To people who look deeper, the attributes of God point us to how divine attribute definitions succeed or miss, so we can get closer to the core mystery of what lies behind them -- the awesome character of God.

The honest truth is, though, that our questions about the character and attributes of God also reflect in our own questions about humanity.
