Last week we talked about what God’s attributes are and I gave an introduction to their meaning, and also gave some examples of what they are not.
I started with an introduction to God’s eternity and gave this definition from Wayne Grudem:
“Eternity: “God’s eternity may be defined as follows: God has no beginning, end, or succession of moments in his own being, and he sees all time equally vividly, yet God sees events in time and acts in time.”, [Wayne Grudem, Systematic Theology]
I want you all to think about this and what it means. If God is eternal and is not bound by time (time is created) what does this mean, and what are the implications? Below is an illustration from Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology: What do you think this illustration is trying to show us?
