    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?
