Sacred Scripture concerning the attributes of God.
The attributes of God, taken directly from the Word of God, are set forth in Metropolitan
Philaret's Longer Christian Catechism of the Orthodox Church (English translation (reprinted from the
1901 translation) in The Catechism of the Orthodox Church, Eastern Orthodox Books, Willits, California, 1971, p.
19). Here we read “Question: What idea of the essence and essential attributes of God may be derived
from Divine revelation? Answer: That God is a Spirit, eternal, all-good, omniscient, righteous,
almighty, omnipresent, unchangeable, all sufficing to Himself, all-blessed.” Let us stop to
think about these attributes set forth in the catechism.
