Jottings – He Is Exalted Above All

Jottings

On God’s immutability: “In virtue of this attribute He is exalted above all becoming, and is free from all accession or diminution and from all growth or decay in His Being or perfections. His knowledge and plans, His moral principles and volitions remain forever the same. Even reason teaches us that no change is possible in God, since a change is either for better or for worse. But in God, as the absolute Perfection, improvement and deterioration are both equally impossible.”

Louis Berkhof, Systematic Theology, pp. 58f.
