Assignment 1: Discussion: Attributes of God

What, or who, is God?

This was the first topic of Christian systematic theology.

This doctrine attempted to answer the following questions:

  • Can God be known at all? If so, how?
  • Can God be described?
  • Are there qualities or attributes, which God must possess in order to be God? If so, what are they?

Early Christian theologians identified the following as attributes of God:

Benevolence

Immateriality

Omnipotence

Eternity

Immutability

Omnipresence

Goodness

Infinity

Omniscience

Please select one of the attributes above to discuss.

In your initial posting, address the following questions:

  • What is this attribute? How does it describe God?
  • Are there any problems associated with this attribute?
  • Which other attributes are compatible with this attribute? Why or why not?
