5 comments on “The Trinity Foundation – God and Logic

  1. Of course being Presbyterian. Clark followed his Westminster Shorter Catechism in failing to rightly describe God.

    Lest I make the same mistake, I will quote the Apostle John, who, twice in the 4th chapter of his 1st epistle says simply and most profoundly, “God is love” {vv. 8 & 16}

    Sadly, the word “love” (Greek, agape) does not appear in the Clark piece.

    Nor does it in the Shorter Catechism Q & A #4:

    What is God?
    God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in his being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth.

    For the sake of completeness, here is the Larger Catechism, Q & A #7:

    What is God?
    God is a Spirit, in and of himself infinite in being, glory, blessedness, and perfection; all-sufficient, eternal, unchangeable, incomprehensible, everywhere present, almighty, knowing all things, most wise, most holy, most just, most merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abundant in goodness and truth.

    And from the Confession of Faith, Ch. 2:1 ~
    Of God, and of the Holy Trinity.
    There is but one only, living, and true God, who is infinite in being and perfection, a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts, or passions; immutable, immense, eternal, incomprehensible, almighty, most wise, most holy, most free, most absolute; working all things according to the counsel of His own immutable and most righteous will, for His own glory; most loving, gracious, merciful, long-suffering, abundant in goodness and truth, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin; the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him; and withal, most just, and terrible in His judgments, hating all sin, and who will by no means clear the guilty.
