Westminster Confession, Chapter 2, Paragraph 1; God And The Trinity

Westminster Confession, Chapter 2, Paragraph 1 – God And The Trinity

1-There is but one only,[25] living, and true God,[26] who is infinite in being and perfection,[27] a most pure spirit,[28] invisible,[29] without body, parts,[30] or passions;[31] immutable,[32] immense,[33] eternal,[34] incomprehensible,[35] almighty,[36] most wise,[37] most holy,[38] most free,[39] most absolute;[40] working all things according to the counsel of his own immutable and most righteous will,[41] for his own glory;[42] most loving,[43] gracious, merciful, long-suffering, abundant in goodness and truth, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin;[44] the rewarder of them that diligently seek him;[45] and withal, most just, and terrible in his judgments,[46] hating all sin,[47] and who will by no means clear the guilty.[48]


What an amazing list of attributes that describe our God. Let’s just work through the list and see if there are any which we don’t understand.

(Remember these are my family devotions. It would be much to exhaustive for me to write out all that we will talk about from this list of attributes. I am using an app called “iReformed.” It gives the Scripture references to each statement in the confession)
