19. What is God’s infinity?
That attribute whereby God possesses within Himself all perfection without any limitation or restriction.
It is further distinguished into:
a) Infinite perfection
20. Is the concept of infinity negating or affirming?
It has been claimed that it is purely negating and therefore has no content. This is not correct. Certainly it is true:
a) That we cannot form a graphic image of the infinite or of an infinite thing. Beholding is always limited, and what is limited does not comprehend the infinite.
b) That we cannot make a concept of the infinite with our thinking. Thinking also is always limited; thus it is inadequate for comprehending the infinite.
Nevertheless, it remains true that we must hold with conviction that:
a) Behind the finite we comprehend, the infinite exists. It is with the infinite God as it is with space. However far we proceed in our imagination, we know that we have not yet arrived at the end, that we could still take one more step.
b) This infinity for God Himself is not something indeterminate as it is for us, but He Himself perfectly encompasses and governs it. However inconceivable this may be for us, in God it is a reality.
