Because we believe that all theology is practical and all practice is theological, we’re here as a humble attempt to simply connect faithful theology to everyday life.


What are God's Communicable Attributes?

What are God's Communicable Attributes?

The guys are back from the 9Marks Weekender and are ready to pick up where they left off, namely, discussing the attributes of God.

Today they riff on God's *communicable* attributes. How do these differ from God's incommunicable attributes? Well, these are the attributes that God and mankind have in common. And as the guys point out, mankind and God have these in common not because God was made in our image, but because we are made in the image of God.

Oh, and Rick is apparently recovering from good ol’ Rita…

So what are these communicable attributes?

Below is a non-comprehensive list of such attributes:

  • Truthfulness

  • Holiness

  • Love

  • Goodness

  • Hate

  • Justice

  • Knowledge

  • Mercy

  • Grace

  • Righteousness

  • Wisdom

  • Wrath

  • …and more
