Does God Change?

  • Daniel Saudek
Part of the Palgrave Frontiers in Philosophy of Religion book series (PFPR)


Having spelt out the relationship between change, time, and relativity theory, we can now investigate the relationship between God, change, and time in the following chapters. This chapter argues that God as the foundation of being cannot be an entity which is limited or lacking in perfection in any way. On this basis, it is shown that it is impossible that God change. At first sight, this would seem to lead to the consequence that divine action is likewise impossible. However, arguments are given that, while limited beings undergo change as they act, this does not apply to God.
