...if we be honest with ourselves,
we shall be honest with each other.  ~ George MacDonald

The Eternal Relationship

If a relationship has not always existed, God is not a relational being.

If God is a relational being, but consists of only one person, then there was a time when God was lonely, and therefore was not complete in himself. But God is complete in himself; he does not need anything. 

If God is not a relational being, then he would never have created. He doesn’t need anything. And what could he possibly desire, if he is not a relational being?

“But you are only using logic to arrive at your conclusions. What does the Bible teach?”

Good question. The book Jesus: A Biblical Defense of his Deity by McDowell and Larson answers that question.





Note:

There was a time when evil did not exist. And there will be a time when evil ceases to exist. Good can exist without evil, but evil cannot exist without good. (C.S. Lewis explains why in his book Mere Christianity.) Btw, when I say evil will cease to exist, I do not mean it will simply be quarantined. It will completely cease to be. See the link below.
