Thursday Thoughts - June 16

The debate about God being influenced or affected by humanity is well-known today. My wager is that God is not changed by humanity, but that God communicatively acts out of covenant trajectory for the whole world. This does not mean, on my account, that God does not relate to humanity contextually; God does, though God is not ultimately contextual. That is, God is already, within his covenantal being God, a God who has, is, and will take the context of humanity into consideration when communicatively acting. God’s character and actions remain related and distinct, yet God comprises them both in the One who is.
