Ep. #18 Evenings with Berkhof (No. 4): The Simplicity of God

We discuss one of the fundamental truths about God – he is simple in his being.  This does not mean that God is easy to understand.  Rather, “[it] means that He is not composed of different parts, and also that His being and attributes are one” (Berkhof).  This doctrinal matter is so important that it is bound up in God’s self-revelation to Moses in Exodus 3 – I AM WHO I AM.
