None Greater Ch 5: Simplicity

In our chapter this week, we consider the doctrine of Simplicity. As we studied Asiety last week, it naturally flows into the doctrine of simplicity. Since God is not dependent on anyone or anything, he is self-existent and simple. By saying God is simple is not to say he is easy going or not intelligent, but that he is not comprised of components but is one, he is simple. This deals with the question, does god have a parts? Read chapter 5 for our book study this week for our discussion for tonight's meeting on Zoom. 
Here is a helpful podcast dealing with Simplicity:

None Greater Ch 4: The Aseity of God


Aseity is a word that describes that God is self-existent and not dependent on his creation. This doctrine is hard for us as creatures to fathom. When we contemplate that God is eternally self-existent not dependent on anyone or anything. However we as creatures are completely dependent on God. God did not create because he was lonely and needed creatures to be fulfilled. God does not depend on anything and he doesn't need us. This attribute we are pondering today for our study is a incommunicable attribute of God, meaning we are creatures do not share this attribute with God. As Barrett says, "this attribute is assumed and taught everywhere in Scripture and proves to be the key that unlocks God’s attributes." We are studying this attribute tonight for our theology for dinner.  Have chapter 4 read and lets be ready to discuss it tonight at 7.

None Greater Ch 1: Incomprehensibility

Are we able to fully know and understand God? Are we able to know the in and outs of God exhaustively? How can we as finite creatures grasps the infinite? Is God even knowable? Moses faced this when he met God. What would that have been like if you were in his sandals? What would it have been like to plead to God for his people's sake. This Wednesday evening we will be discussing chapter 1 of our new book study, None Greater, and discuss these questions. We will be joining together on Zoom at 7 pm. Please read chapter 1 and Also read Exodus 32 and 33 for tomorrow as it will aid for our discussion. I will be sending a email with the zoom details soon.
