There’s always been something about the doctrine of divine impassibility that’s made me feel slightly uncomfortable. Often this is to do with the inadequate expressions of the doctrine. But reading over at the BH blog, James Jordan’s comment on the matter, I think I’ve worked out why.
He says this:
Van Til challenges the whole impassibility of God notion. God is not impassible; He is the fullness of passibility. Each Person totally feels the other two and is totally influenced by and responds to the other two. And the Spirit, who can be grieved by us, is total in His feeling and response to us.
Oh, and Marc Lloyd, I think you’ll be interested by his take on Patripassionism.
