If God could ever be summarized…

07/05/2010

(which He couldn’t be).. but:

God hath all life, glory, goodness, blessedness, in and of himself; and is alone in and unto himself all-sufficient, not standing in need of any creatures which he hath made, not deriving any glory from them, but only manifesting his own glory, in, by, unto, and upon them: he is the alone fountain of all being, of whom, through whom, and to whom, are all things; and hath most sovereign dominion over them, to do by them, for them, or upon them, whatsoever himself pleaseth.  In his sight all things are open and manifest; his knowledge is infinite, infallible, and independent upon the creature, so as nothing is to him contingent or uncertain.  He is most holy in all his counsels, in all his works, and in all his commands.  To him is due from angels and men, and every other creature, whatsoever worship, service, or obedience, he is pleased to require of them.

-from The Westminster Confession on God the Father
