…love is not an attribute of God…

…For then God’s love would depend on conditional being and would thus be accidental…God, or the Truth, not only has love but, above all, “God is love”…That is, love is God’s essence, His own nature, and not only His providential relationship, which is proper to Him. In other words, “God is love” (more precisely, He is “Love”), and not only “the Loving One,” even if the “perfectly Loving One.”
Fr. Pavel Florensky

  1. Yes, they are wonderful. They are from his magnum opus The Pillar And Ground of The Truth put out by Princeton Press. It is the hardest book I’ve ever read… I have about 15 pages of stuff I’ve typed up from it if you would like me to send it to you.
