Melanchthon: On God

You’ll hardly find a better description of God anywhere:

“God is a spiritual essence, intelligent, eternal, true, good, pure, just, merciful, most free, of vast power and wisdom, the eternal Father who begat the Son, his own image, from eternity, and the Son, the coeternal image of the Father, and the Holy Spirit, proceeding from the Father and the Son.”  — Philipp Melanchthon

Tomorrow is Philipp’s birthday so expect lots of Melanchthonia.
