BaltCat2 Lesson 2.1

Lesson 2 -- Scripture Corr with Catechism -- God's Perfections

When we say that God is the Supreme Being we mean that He is above all creatures, the self-existing and infinitely perfect Spirit. "I am the First, and I am the Last, and besides me there is no God. "(Isaiah 44:6)
A spirit is a being that has understanding and free will, but no body, and will never die. "To whom then have you likened God? Or what image will you make for Him? (Isaiah 40:18)
When we say that God is self-existing we mean that He does not owe His existence to any other being. "I am who am. (Exodus 3:14)
When we say that God is infinitely perfect we mean that He has all perfections without limit. "Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and of his greatness there is no end. (Psalm 144:3)
When we say that God is eternal we mean that He always was and always will be, and always remains the same. "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."James 1:17
When we say that God is all-good we mean that He is infinitely lovable in Himself, and that from His fatherly love every good comes to us. "For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done with faithfulness. He loveth mercy and judgment: the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord. (Psalm 32:4-5)
When we say that God is all-knowing we mean that He knows all things, past, present, and future, even our most secret thoughts, words, and actions. "Behold, O Lord, thou hast known all things, the last and those of old: thou hast formed me, and hast laid thy hand upon me. Thy knowledge is become wonderful to me: it is high, and I cannot reach it. (Psalm 138:5-6)
When we say that God is all-present we mean that He is everywhere. "Whither may I go from thy spirit, or whither may I flee from they face? (Psalm 138:7)
Although God is everywhere, we do not see Him because He is a spirit and cannot be seen with our eyes. "God is a spirit; and they that adore him must adore him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)
God sees us and watches over us with loving care. Be not solicitous therefore, saying: "What shall we eat?" or "What shall we drink?" or "Wherewith will we be clothed?"..For your heavenly Father knoweth that you have need of all these things (Matthew 6:31:32)
God's loving care for us is called Divine Providence. "Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. (I Peter 5:7)
When we say that God is almighty we mean that He can do all things. "For nothing shall be impossible with God. (Luke 1:37)
God is all-wise, all-holy, all-merciful, and all-just. The Lord is just in all his ways, and holy in all his works. (Psalm 144:17)
