Some Reflections on the Concept of 'Timeless God' in Western Thought

Kaygi 12:225 - 234 (2009)

Abstract
Anyone who is interested in the question of the existence of God has to study first of all the divine attributes; for to say that God exists is to say that there is something that has some attributes. If ’God exists’ is to be true, then the divine attributes must at least themselves be coherent and compatible. The coherence of the notion of God with His traditional divine attributes is a necessary, though not sufficient, condition for the acceptance of God’s existence. This article investigates the concept of ’timeless God’ which we meet often in discussions about divine attributes
